If you are a Krampus enthusiast, this trip is a MUST! Jake is the best guide and host, with insider knowledge and a refreshing commitment to hospitality. He will fill you in on all the history you need to understand what you're experiencing. He knows how to plan a day and pivot when circumstances change, all while exhibiting a tremendous sense of humor. Our two night trip to Salzburg and Berchtesgaden is just about the only way to see two different Krampus experiences in two different countries in two days. This was a once-in-a-lifetime event that was perfect in every way--even though we ended up getting whipped by a Krampus and separated from our tour group for 90 minutes. After a couple of beers--all was well and boy did we have a story to tell. From the Krampus lair in the hills of the German Alps to a strudel-making class in a Salzburg cave, this tour is perfect for lovers of history, culture, art, food, beer, and folklore.
