With breathtaking, almost surreal, ‘chocolate-box’ beauty and tingling-fresh air, it is easy to understand the attraction of the Tyrol region of Austria. The verdant green valleys nestle below the towering, snow-covered peaks of the majestic Alpine range. This holiday enables us to enjoy the finest scenery that Austria has to offer along with traditional steam trains, winding through mountain valleys and from the deck of a pleasure boat, cruising the tranquil waters of an Alpine lake. The sleepy resort of Kirchberg is embedded in the Kitzbuhel Alps, only 6km from the famous town of Kitzbuhel. Surrounded by crystal clear mountain streams, forests and lush green lawns this is an idyllic setting and the ideal location for our included excursions.

Hotel Sonnalp, Kirchberg ****

The hotel is situated in a sunny location near the centre of Kirchberg and offers spa facilities including an indoor pool, a rustic-style restaurant and scenic mountain views. Each of the rooms features wooden furniture, cable TV and a seating area. A Finnish sauna, steam bath and a Kneipp-pool with warm and cold water to improve circulation are some of the wellness facilities at the hotel. There is also a tennis court and a games room with table tennis and billiards. The restaurant at Sonnalp serves traditional local and international cuisine in a dining room which includes wooden beams and old-style furniture. There is also a cosy bar and a terrace which offers a peaceful place to sit in summer.

Mayrhofen and the Zillertalbahn to Jenbach

We visit the pretty little town of Mayrhofen, steeped in rustic charm. There is time to explore the town and browse the many craft shops selling ornate wood carvings and locally produced goods, before boarding the steam train to Jenbach. This scenic train ride passes through the beautiful Ziller Valley on its way to the pretty town of Jenbach, where we meet our coach and return to our hotel.

Innsbruck

Innsbruck where we spend time exploring the Old Town with its famous ‘Golden Roof’ above the medieval town square. Spoil yourself with a traditional coffee and a calorie-busting applestrudel!

The ‘Oldest...Steam Train’, The ‘Highest Lake’, and ‘Smallest Town’

We make the short journey to Jenbach to join the Achenseebahn Steam Train, the world’s oldest rack and pinion steam train. Our journey takes us through soaring mountain scenery to Seespitz, on Lake Achensee. Here we swap the clank of pistons and the hiss of steam for the gentle lapping of crystal clear waters on our Lake Achensee cruise. We rejoin our coach and make for the picture-postcard town of Rattenberg, Austria’s smallest town. A gem of medieval architecture, Rattenberg is adorned with archways leading to quiet inner courtyards and numerous squares.
