Either way, you’re guaranteed to see Innsbruck’s magnificent Golden Roof. Next, journey by train 3,600 feet above sea level to the idyllic village of Seefeld, one of the world's great ski resorts thanks to its miles of lakes and trails. Step off the train in to the pure Alpine air to find an authentic horse-drawn carriage – and a traditional gift of Schnapps – waiting for you. Don’t be shy to belt out a carol or two as you’re whisked across the snow to meet our good friend, Peter, who invites you to participate in an interactive demonstration of how to make (and eat!) traditional strudel.
