This tour will take you past some of Bavaria’s most beautiful lakes, through the Karwendel Mountains to Innsbruck, city of the golden roof in Austria. Within Innsbruck, you’ll have a chance to see Hofburg and Hofkirche, two delightful examples of gilded architecture from the baroque period.
You’ll visit one of Bavaria’s most popular attractions: Swarovski's "World of Crystals". The complex was designed by the famous Austrian performance artist Andre Heller. There is much to appreciate in this glittering crystal cave. At Swarovski's "World of Crystals" you will find the world's biggest crystal which weighs 137 pounds (62 kilograms) and the largest kaleidoscope in the world.
You will be picked up in an air-conditioned coach at the front of the “Karstadt” department store for an Innsbruck and the Swarovski World of Crystals Tour. A bilingual (English and German) guide will accompany you on this tour.
The first stop is Swarovski World of Crystals. The name Swarovski Crystal speaks of the chicest, finest quality crystal and glassware. You’ll have a chance to browse through their collections, and make any purchases that you desire (payable direct).
You’ll see Crystal World, a diverse multimedia gallery that is one of Tirol's most popular attractions. In the gallery there are the artistic creations of at least fifteen famed artists including Salvador Dalí, Brian Eno, André Heller, and Andy Warhol.
The tour will pause at Innsbruck where you’ll be given time to explore at your leisure. There are many attractions for sightseeing, including Hofburg and Hofkirche. If you’re in Innsbruck, Hofburg is a must-see. This gorgeous palace will take your breath away with its magical opulance. Hofburg was a favorite of Maria Theresia. Across the street is Hofkirche. Within it is the empty sarcophagus of Emperor Maximilian I, intricately carved from marble. You may also wish to take lunch at one of the many cafés that feature traditional Austrian sweets (payable direct).
