Mountains, Castles and Forests


London - Paris - Munich - Innsbruck - Salzburg - Vienna - Cologne - Brussels - London

A memorable journey by rail to the famous Austrian cities of Vienna, Salzburg and Innsbruck. A holiday of breathtaking landscapes, culture and history

Leave London in the afternoon and arrive in beautiful Austria the following morning. This fairytale rail journey winds between mountains, forests and castles, with time to explore the sparkling alpine slopes and cosy cafes of Innsbruck, the fascinating history and meandering streets of Saltzburg, and the grandeur and galleries of Vienna.

Take a funicular and cable car up Innsbruck’s Nordkette mountains, and breathe air as pure as spring water, see where Mozart was born and Maria Von Trapp sang in Saltzburg, and enjoy Vienna’s 19th century coffee houses, museums and palaces. Return via Brussels, with wonderful memories of sparkling rivers, gilded palaces and awe-inspiring mountains.

On Friday nights from late December to mid-April (but not 25 January to 25 February) the Paris-Munich City Night Line sleeper train is extended to Innsbruck, arriving at 09:46, with no need to change at Munich.

(No sleeper train between Paris Munich from 25 January to 25 February due to engineering works)
