Discover picture postcard winter wonderland scenery as we take you on an enchanting journey through the beating heart of the Alps in Austria, Switzerland and Lichtenstein. Follow in the footsteps of Prince Charles when you visit the bewitching settlement of Klosters then be enthralled by vaduz, a handsome city hugging the banks of the River Rhine and home to a beautiful gothic cathedral as well as a fairytale castle where the Prince of Lichtenstein resides. Extra special treats are our romantic sleigh ride across a crisp blanket of snow and our trip on the legendary Glacier Express through untouched mountain landscapes and across impressive bridges - guaranteed to be unforgettable experiences!
Your Holiday Itinerary

Day Two. We make our way to our dinner, bed and breakfast stop.
Day Three. We continue to the Hotel Weisses Kreuz in Feldkirch. Hot winter punch and a warm welcome on arrival.
Day Four. A gem of a day as we head to the famous mountain village of Klosters – the favourite haunt of Prince Charles - then onwards to nearby Davos where you might like to hop aboard the cable car to take in the Alpine views. We continue to handsome vaduz, capital of Liechtenstein.
Day Five. The treats keep coming with a romantic sleigh ride through the snowy Bregenzerwald followed by a rejuvenating glass of schnapps then a visit to the pine-clad slopes of Schwarzenberg.
