Klein Schneideff and the North face of the Eiger Front cover: Vienna Christmas Markets

Waking up on Christmas Day under a crisp, white doona in an 800 year old Coaching Inn deep in the heart of the Austrian Tyrol, or maybe in a stunning 13th century Italian castle

Imagine...

located in the foothills of the Dolomites. The whole festive experience looks and feels like a nostalgic Christmas card. Close your eyes and paint a picture of yourself standing in the festive Christmas Markets of a quaint, medieval village square decorated with twinkling lights. It is dusk and all around you there is laughter whilst you’re sipping mulled wine and sharing ginger biscuits with new found friends. Now set this in the heart of the snow covered mountains of Switzerland, or the Austrian Alps, and then complete the scene with visits to ancient castles, Cistercian monasteries and tiny lakeside villages all alive with time-honoured festive celebrations. To me, the romance is everywhere… from taking snow-bound sleigh rides to an exhilarating train ride on the Glacier Express through the majestic Alps. Let’s face it, what could be better on Boxing Day than catching a cable car to an alpine restaurant for a steaming cup of ‘heisse schokolade mit Sahne‘ (hot chocolate with cream) whilst taking in the glorious panorama. But if you ask my wife what really matters the most, she would talk about being able to relax and enjoy herself and have someone else serve that marvellous, festive Christmas dinner. (My wife has penned a few thoughts - see page 13). As proud market leaders, with over 20 years of European Christmas touring experience, you will get a genuinely festive touring experience with that special ‘touch’ when travelling with Albatross Tours. Most importantly each tour and holiday we offer still holds true to our simple policy, that we offer Christmas ‘as it should be’. Taking particular care to include special events and activities that bring alive the nostalgia, joy and romance of the Festive Season. I feel Christmas, at least once, should be truly special with somebody else looking after that important person – you. Come join us!
