The focal point of this unforgettable holiday is when we head into Innsbruck for the Swarovski Crystal Worlds Festival of Lights – a mystical extravaganza of light and sound. This spectacular event is staged in the company’s seven-hectare garden and gets underway at dusk when the park starts to glow, creating a magical atmosphere and telling a fantasy story as the lights come to life. Another memorable treat is our visit to Neuschwanstein Castle – the inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle.
