The old farming village of Seefeld is a delightful and typical Austrian Tyrolean village situated on a plateau above the Inn valley. It's geared up for visitors, being a popular ski resort in the winter. There are horse–drawn carriages for hire, lots of shops, restaurants and bars, and myriad outdoor activities to enjoy. Take a funicular railway or cable car ride up into the mountains to really appreciate that fresh mountain air; keen walkers will find plenty of hiking trails of varying grades of difficulty. There are also indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and on the southern edge of the village is Wildsee, an idyllic lake for bathing and swimming amidst the beauty of a nature reserve. On the shores of the lake there is an area which includes a heated outdoor pool, children's pool and other sports and water–based activities. Innsbruck, the capital of the region, is easily reached by train from the village.

This holiday includes half board accommodation at a 3 star hotel and one excursion, with other optional excursions available to book in resort.

Thursday Achensee and Rattenberg
A leisurely breakfast first, then we depart at around 11 a.m. on our excursion to Lake Achen (Achensee) and Rattenberg. Tyrol's largest and highest lake, often known as the 'Tirolean Fjord', is surrounded by mountains and we will stop at the small attractive lakeside village of Pertisau. You can take an optional boat trip (Scholastika–Pertisau, €10.40) on the lake if you wish, subject to timings, and you are advised to take a windproof jacket as Lake Achen is renowned for being a wind trap! We leave Achensee in the mid–afternoon, then make a short visit to the delightful medieval town of Rattenberg, located in the Inn valley, famous for its artisan glass blowers. We will return to the hotel at around 5.15pm.

Friday Free day. If you haven't already taken a cable car ride up into the peaks to enjoy the views, now's the time! You can take the funicular railway up so far (Bergbahnen Rossehütte), followed by a second stage cable car to the summit if you wish.

Saturday Breakfast first, then at the appropriate time you will be transferred to Munich airport for check–in and your flight home.

Optional excursions   Supplements apply
Hidden Tyrol   (High mountain tour including the Ötztal valley, glaciers, and Stuiben waterfall)Monday  approx. €30 per person
This excursion takes you up high into the magnificent Ötztal valley with plenty of photo-stops on the way. We take the famous Gletscherstrasse (Glacier Road) from Sölden up to the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers at 2,700 m where you will be able to set foot on the ice and admire the breathtaking views of Austria's highest mountains. If you wish you can take an optional cable car ride further up the glacier at Tiefenbach (€15 per person, payable on the day). We then continue on to the Umhausen valley and have a photo-stop at the Stuiben Falls, the highest waterfall in Tyrol, before returning to Seefeld at about 6 p.m..
Please note there is a toll charged to use the Gletscherstrasse of €5.50 per person, payable on the day. Take a warm jacket with you as even at the height of summer it could be snowing on the glacier.
Neuschwanstein CastleTuesday  approx. €38 per person
Visit Germany's most popular tourist attraction, the castle featured in 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' and said to be the influence for Disney's Sleeping Beauty's castle. We depart early from Seefeld (about 8.30 a.m.) and on the way we have a photo-stop at a viewpoint for Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain. We then carry on to the village of Schwangau in Bavaria, overlooked by the magnificent fairy tale castle. Perched atop a rugged hill, it was built by 'mad' King Ludwig, and this is reflected in the unique, eclectic design. A look inside is highly recommended, and the admission fee includes a tour from a local guide. From the coach park there are three ways to get to the castle; via a steep 1.5 km uphill walk, by shuttle bus or by horse-drawn carriage. The shuttle bus takes you close to a suspension bridge for spectacular views of the castle, village and surrounding area (recommended for photos), then it's a 10 to 15-minute walk down to the castle entrance. If you prefer not to visit the castle, you can explore Schwangau itself, a nice downhill walk from the coach park. The tour returns to Seefeld in the late afternoon.
This tour includes walking on steep gradients and inside the castle there are a lot of steps, so it is not suitable for those with limited mobility.

Optional extras
Castle admission and tour €12 pp / under-18s free
Shuttle bus to castle from car park €1.80pp single, €2.60pp return
Horse-drawn carriage to castle €6.00pp up, €3.00pp down
