What you'll be doing


Arrival into Austria

We will arrive into Munich Airport and transfer to Hotel Sonnschein located in the Tyrol village of Niederau. We will check in and then gather for a welcome drink and dinner together.
  • Dinner included.

Hike Markbachjoch

This morning we will have breakfast at the hotel before we start our first walk of the holiday. We will begin nice and easy with a short walk to the gondola station where we will take this up the mountain. At the top we will enjoy a hike from Markbachjoch to the picturesque reservoir. Here we can see metal sculptures placed around the water. A total of 20 works of art were created during the Art on the Mountain weeks over the past few years. We will continue on to Mittermoosen Alm, which is a wonderfully located hut on the way back down to Niederau. Distance: 6,7 km. Altitude: 23 m uphill & 612 m downhill.
  • Breakfast and dinner included.

Hike to the hotels own alpine Pasture

Today we will head to the hotels own alpine Pasture where we will be served a local barbeque lunch with live music to accompany. We will take the gondola up the mountain and begin our walk to the Kühbrandalm. Whilst at the top we will get breathtaking panoramic views of the mountain range and lush green hills. The walk will take us over to the other side of the mountain and through peaceful woodlands and mountain pathways. After our stop at the Kühbrandalm, we will walk down to the bus stop for our transfer back to the hotel where we will be spoiled with coffee and homemade cake. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure. Distance: 9,5 km. Altitude: 200 m uphill & 720 m downhill.
  • Breakfast and dinner included.


After breakfast this morning we will board the coach and head to the capitol of the Tyrol region, Innsbruck. Innsbruck is known for its imperial and modern architecture, something we will witness on our guided tour, whilst also seeing the most majestic views of the jagged rock spires of the Nordkette mountain range rising above the city. After the guided tour we will have some free time for lunch before gathering to take the funicular from the city centre up to 1.905 meters above see level, up to Seegrube, a part of the Nordkette mountain range. Whilst here we will be able to take a small stroll along the mountain to take in the views into the inn valley or simply enjoy a cold (or warm) drink on the terrace of the restaurant. After marvelling at the view and capturing memorable photographs, we’ll make our way back to the hotel for dinner and overnight.
  • Breakfast and dinner included.

Hike from Wildschönau to Alpbach (Rattenberg)

Just on the other side of the mountain lies the pretty village of Alpbach, famous for its flower-covered terraces and beautiful Alpine styled houses. Today will we take the public bus to Auffach to board the gondola which will take us to Schatzberg (1.898 metres above sea level). From here will we descend down through the forest to reach Zottahof, a small mountain restaurant. Here’s a perfect opportunity to fill up with energy, either with a warm or a cold meal and for the brave try the very own “Löffel milch”, the receipt is still a secret! We will continue down the mountain alongside the tree line where we then will reach the centre of the little village of Alpbach. After a stroll around the coach will pick us up to take us to Austria’s smallest city, Rattenberg, famous for its glass blowing and locally produced ice cream. Afterwards we return to the hotel by coach for dinner. Distance: 8,8 km. Elevation: 760 m downhill to Zottaalm + 225 m downhill to Alpbach village.
  • Breakfast and dinner included.

Day at leisure

Today is a day a leisure and to spend how we wish. We can explore Wildschönau Valley further as the gondola is a short walk away, or we can rest up and make the most of the hotels facilities.
  • Breakfast and dinner included.

Hike along the Lake Achensee

Our final walk in Tyrol will be to the marvellous lake Achensee. The serpentine roads will take us up to Tyrol’s largest lake, where the mountains disappear directly into the lake. Today’s relaxed hike starts in Pertisau and continue along the west coast line of the lake. The first stop on the hike is at Gaisalm, where we can enjoy a small snack or just a drink before we continue on to the final destination of Achenkirsch. From here will we take the boat back and see the lake from another perspective. Distance: 8,8 km. Elevation: 160 m uphill & downhill.
  • Breakfast and dinner included.

After breakfast, we will have the remainder of the day before we transfer back to the airport for our return flight home.
