Trip Itinerary

Day 1 Arrival in Oberaudorf
Journey to Upper Bavaria. In Oberaudorf you will be warmly welcomed at the Hotel Gasthof Ochsenwirt. With a welcome mulled wine from the open fire you get in the mood for your Advent journey.
The Hotel Gasthof Ochsenwirt is located in Oberaudorf, in the Upper Bavarian district of Rosenheim. The house is quietly situated at the foot of the Inntaler mountains. All traditionally furnished rooms are equipped with a bathroom including shower/WC, hairdryer and TV. The house has a restaurant with Bavarian cuisine.
The Upper Bavarian health resort Oberaudorf is also called "Pearl of the Inn Valley". It is located in one of the most beautiful and attractive mountain regions of Upper Bavaria. Here you will find everything you could wish for for nature-oriented relaxation: flat and slightly hilly footpaths and cycle paths along rivers and lakes and Alpine foothills and mountains with rustic huts.

Day 2 Kufstein with city tour
During a city tour you will go on a voyage of discovery through the fortified town of Kufstein. Afterwards you have free time. During the Advent season, the old town of Kufstein is transformed into a Christmassy idyll, over which the illuminated fortress watches like a bright star. A permanent institution is also the Christmas magic on the historic fortress Kufstein (admission approx. 6€ not included in the RP). Deprived of the hustle and bustle of the streets, one can admire here in the historical casemate corridors of the Josefsburg and in the fortress arena much handmade at the sales stands. 

3rd day Christmas market at the fairy tale king 
The main attraction of this day is the Chiemsee, also known as the "Bavarian Sea", which is also beautiful in winter dress. From Prien you take a winter boat trip with a pleasure steamer to the Herreninsel, world famous for the castle built by the fairytale king Ludwig II, which you can of course also visit. After an appropriate inspection stay you steam further to the woman island. Important sights are the Carolingian gate hall with the frescos from the 9th century in the Michael chapel, the over 1200 year old former cathedral with the grave of the blessed Irmingard (+866), the Campanile - the landmark of the Chiemgau - and the Lindenplatz with the thousand year old lime trees. In the afternoon you visit the Christkindlmarkt on the Fraueninsel. A romantic winter fairy tale that delights visitors from near and far every year. Festive lighting, the finest arts and crafts, unusual gift ideas and fragrant delicacies frame the unique Inselchristkindlmarkt in the Bavarian Sea, to which over 90 exhibitors invite you.

Day 4: Journey home
Today you start your journey home after many beautiful winter and Christmas impressions.
