Agents Take a Majestic Journey through Austria with APT

May 20, 2014 Photo Gallery No Comments Email Email

A group of top performing travel agents travelling on a recent APT European River Cruise famil were lucky enough to experience an unforgettable day journey to Salzburg aboard the Majestic Imperator train.

APT Agents on the Majestic Imperator The luxury journey, which is exclusive to guests of APT, is one of the award-winning cruise and tour operators new Signature Experiences for 2015 and the agents were treated to a taste of what APT guests can expect next year.

Taking in the breathtaking scenery of Austria’s famous Salzkammergut region, the agents enjoyed morning tea aboard the train before disembarking in Salzburg for a tour, which touches on some of the sights from the classic ‘Sound of Music’, and also affords the chance to explore Mirabell Gardens and the Great Salzburg Festival Hall. They then reboarded the train, enjoying drinks and music en route to Passau, where they rejoined their river cruise.

Lovingly restored by Gottfried Rieck, an Austrian engineer whose career began as a stoker on steam locomotives, the Majestic Imperator is one of the finest remaining relics of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Modelled on the Imperial Train originally built for Emperor Franz Josef I and Empress Elisabeth of Austria, beneath its rich, lustrous interior, it represents centuries of perfectly-preserved history and tradition.

The journey on the Majestic Imperator is available on all APT Magnificent Europe itineraries in 2015. Find out more in the new APT European River Cruising 2015 brochure, which is available now. For further information call APT on 1300 196 420, or see your local business development manager.
