Christmas in the Alps

Christmas in the alps

"Christmas in the Alps" takes travelers to the majestic, snow-capped mountains and charming Christmas markets of Germany and Austria. The journey begins in Munich, makes stops in Fuessen and Salzburg, and ends in Vienna. Included are a visit to Neuschwanstein Castle near Fuessen, a Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, and a tour of Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna, with the option of attending a Viennese opera.

Both Germany and Austria have rich Christmas traditions, and SUU Professors Kyle Bishop and Kurt Harris will lead community members through the countries' breathtaking landscapes and introduce them to ancient German and Austrian customs at Christmastime.
