With plenty of optional excursions, as well as a visit to Imperial Innsbruck, there are plenty of fun activities to keep you entertained and amused throughout your holiday.

This Tyrolean break is based in Oberperfuss, a village which lies close to Innsbruck city, as well as the beautiful Rannger Kopfl Mountains. Holidaymakers will fly into Munich. From there they’ll be transferred by coach to Oberperfuss village, where they will be greeted by hotel staff members and served a welcome drink.

The Hotel Krone is a family-owned business, and can be found in the heart of the village. Traditionally furnished, its rooms are cosy and include a sitting area, a telephone and TV. Elsewhere in the hotel, you can find a modern bar and restaurant, as well as a two-lane bowling area, a steam room, and a sauna.

The trip to Innsbruck is one of the many highlights of this holiday; it provides you with the opportunity to explore and discover one of the country’s most beautiful cities. Its main street, Maria-Theresien Strasse, is filled with lovely boutiques and jewellery stores, and is a great place for some Christmas shopping, but you’ll also be able to find more unusual trinkets and gifts at the Christmas Market. And, ┬áif you feel a little chilly during your visit, you can always sip on a steaming cup of coffee in one of the many charming cafes in the Altstafd.

While customers of Newmarket Holidays always thoroughly enjoy the visit to Innsbruck, there are plenty of other interesting events and activities included in this break. From the afternoon cookies and Gluhwein, to the festive Lantern walk, the Seefeld tour and the amazing Christmas feast, there’s an abundance of wonderful things to look forward to when you book this trip. You may also want to take part in one of the optional excursions, which include a visit Kitzbuhel, a famous resort that is situated in a breathtakingly beautiful Alpine valley, and a tour of Swarovski Crystal Worlds, an exhibition centre dedicated to celebrating the work of the world’s best-known jewellery company.
