The Tyrolean Horse & carriage ride through the scenic Alpen countryside
A typical mountain village and a horse drawn carriage ride which takes us through the
mountains and valley of the Tyrol. We stop in a quaint tavern for a drink of Schnapps

birthplace and some of the sites where 'The Sound of Music' was filmed
