    InnsbruckInnsbruck - £30
    Visit the Capital of the Tyrol region. With it's beautiful historic old town square, empress's palace and cathedral surrounded by high snow covered mountains, it is really breath taking. The town hosted the Winter Olympics twice in the 1970s, with the ski jump and lift system being recently re-designed by the famous architect Zaha Hadid to give an interesting mixture of traditional and modern architecture with a stunning mountain backdrop.
    AchenseeAchensee - £12
    Take a scenic drive up to the spectacular lake Achen. Surrounded by the beautiful Karwendel and Rofan mountain ranges, stop at the town of Pertisau on the lake side. In Pertisau stroll along the lakeside admiring the views, watch the cross country skiers who use the extensive cross country trails around the village, or have coffee and cake in a lakeside Konditorei.
    RattenburgRattenberg & Schloss Matzen - £12
    Known as the most beautiful town in the Tyrol, Rattenberg is situated along the river Inn just out of the Ziller Valley. It has a castle overlooking the town and it's old cobbled streets and impressive stone buildings are a pleasure to explore. The town is famous for it's glassware, so there are lots of small shops producing glass and crystal in all shapes and sizes. On our way, we make a stop at Gut Matzen, which is a stately home with lovely grounds and a towering old castle and a cosy cafe.
    SalzburgSalzburg - £33
    Visit the musical city of Salzburg. Famous for being Mozart's birthplace and for 'The Sound of Music', it is also a beautiful old historic city. Take a short orientation walk around the main sights with your guide before having free time to visit the castle and Mozart's house and look around the shops.
    SwarovskiSwarovski Crystal Worlds - £18
    The second most visited attraction in Austria, Crystal Worlds is an arty display using Swarovski Crystal as it's central theme. There is an impressive entrance hallway of crystal and an interesting crystal room, followed by artistic displays. Disappointingly they do not demonstrate how their famous crystal is produced, as they say their methods are top-secret. But to make up for it, there is an extensive shop where you can browse and buy everything from a crystal pencil to a chandelier.
    Silver Mines in SchwazSilver Mines in Schwaz - £23
    Visit the incredible silver mine in Schwaz and see the mountains from beneath. This mine supplied 85% of the entire world's silver during the Middle Ages, making the local owners one of the wealthiest families in the world at that time.
