A nostalgic journey by an original mail-coach and a four-in-hand team of horses from the town of Reutte in Tirol (Austria) to the town of Steeg (or vice-versa) in the district of Außerfern in Tyrol/Austria, through one of the most beautiful natural reserves of the Alps, untouched by mass tourism. This tour can be easily combined with a visit of the Royal Bavarian castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, as Reutte is only 25 km from these.
