Your Holiday Itinerary

Day1Fly to Munich

Fly direct from Dublin to Munich where will be met at the airport by Topflight’s Resort Manager and transferred by coach to St. Johann. You will stay at the Hotel Post, a true favourite with Topflight guests, year after year, both in summer and for ski holidays.

Recently upgraded to a 4 star rating, from the moment you arrive in this long-established hotel, you will get a sense of what true Tyrolean charm is all about. The hotel has been modernised, the facilities improved and the levels of service perfected, but the warmth and friendliness remain as standard.

Day2St. Johann Walkabout

Today, you will join our guide on an entertaining and informative walk through St.Johann. Enjoy a stroll through the town and get a sense of what the area has to offer as you learn about the history of this charming village and see its many highlights. This is the perfect way to kick start your Austrian adventure and you can spend the remainder of the day as you wish.


Today you will venture on an excursion to the beautiful Berchtesgaden, a Royal Bavarian Spa town, famed for its old working salt mines as well as Hitler’s ‘Eagle’s Nest’, a home and headquarters that he acquired for his 50th birthday.

Salt mining has a long history in the area and you may wish to take a tour of the complex tunnel system that makes up part of the 500 year old mine (payable locally).

Or you can visit the ‘Eagle’s Nest’, Adolf Hitler’s famous mountaintop retreat (also payable locally). See where Hitler entertained dignitaries and admire the spectacular Alpine views that the house enjoyed, which ironically were somewhat of a challenge for Hitler, due to his vertigo.

Or if you’d prefer to simply explore the fantastically beautiful town, you have time to do so. Apart from the royal castle and its abbey church, there numerous other sites which are well worth a visit.

In the late afternoon, you will be returned to St. Johann in time to get ready for your evening meal.

Day4At your leisure

Today, St.Johann is your oyster! Why not take the short stroll from your hotel to the cable car and make your way up the stunning mountain to visit one of the many mountain restaurants. Or if you'd prefer to take it easy, take in the town's atmosphere and the great food, drink and hospitality that is on offer.

Day5Hidden Treasures

This excursion brings you through the northern Limestone range of the Alps into the main valley of Tirol and to the second largest city in the province, Kufstein. Here, you will have a look at the impressive Kufstein fortress, which houses the ‘Heroes’ Organ’, the largest free-standing organ in the world. You will have the opportunity to take a pleasent stroll through the old town centre here.

Your next visit is to a small mountain village called Thieresse, where for more than 200 years, every 6 years, the residents of the village perform a Passion Play and a picturesque little lake offers a scenic landscape.

Back in the valley of the river Inn, we will visit the smallest town in Austria with a population of just 450 people, Rattenberg. Famous for its ancient craft of glass art, Rattenberg is where famous glass artists such as Swarovski and Riedel started their businesses. Guests can have a wander through this quaint, historic town and even see a crystal glass blower in action.

You will be transferred from here back to your hotel in time for your evening meal.


After breakfast, you will be picked up by coach to the enchanting city of Salzburg, home of world famous composer Mozart and, of course, the Von Trapp family in The Sound of Music.

You will start off passing Leopoldskron Castle, where the Von Trapp family lived in the film, before heading to the centre of the city. There are various locations dotted throughout the city that feature in the movie and also in the centre of the city is Mozart’s birth house. Guests will have free time to spend as they wish in this wonderful city. Enjoy a wander at your own pace or perhaps take a guided city tour of the area with a local guide, which costs around €10 per person.

After your free time, you will meet your Topflight guide once more and board the bus to travel to the beautiful St. Gilgen, another of The Sound of Music’s iconic locations. This stunningly scenic area is instantly recognisable from the opening scenes of the movie, with its lush green hills, overlooking the town’s onion-domed church spire and the blue waters of Wolfgangsee. You will then visit Mondsee Basilica, where Maria was married.

Afterwards, you will be transferred back to your base in time for your evening meal.

Day7At your leisure

You have another day to enjoy the surrounds of St. Johann at your own pace. Topflight recommends taking a trip to the Panorama Badewelt, a superb leisure center, which lies less than a 15 minute walk from the hotel. Here, you'll find a large, indoor pool, a fantastic outdoor pool, and a spa area, which features saunas, steam baths, and massage treatments. There is also a beautiful solarium, boasting splendid surrounding views, should you wish to catch a few Austrian rays.

Day8Return home
