  • Description: Not just for fans of the film, this Austrian adventure also takes in the country's romantic cities, dramatic scenery, epic history and timeless connections to music. It's Insider moments like… reaching the storybook-style castle of King Ludwig in the Bavarian mountains by horse-drawn carriage. Or treading in the footsteps of the Von Trapps in Salzburg, before joining Johann and Manfred Stadler in their rustic 'gasthof' for a more authentic take on Austrian life. Entering the family's 200 year old barn, in the low hills of the Berchtesgaden Alps, you sample their 'home brew' – popular with local hikers. Then join the brothers for 'Ripperl' smoked pork chops and rich Black Forest Gateau or fruit tart.
