Xmas in Innsbruck - church services? + daytrips to Bavaria

My family of four (two daughters are 13 and 20) will be staying in Mutters just outside of Innsbruck for the week of December 23-30. Aside from skiing, which we plan to do a lot of, what is there to do in Innsbruck? In particular, are there any special events on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? Anyone know of a good place to go for a Christmas Eve service (we're Protestant but tolerant of Papists!)? Also, how doable are day trips to Bavaria - Fussen I've read some about, and also Berchtesgaden? Thanks so much!

As Innsbruck is largely Roman Catholic, it is easier to find Catholic services than Protestant ones... I can recommend the Jesuit Church in the center of Innsbruck. There is a service at Christmas Eve in English on 24th December at 6 p.m.:


General information in English:


The nearest Protestant Church, just a few minutes away from the Jesuits, is the Christuskirche


Their services are on each Sunday at 9.30 a.m., but they haven't posted their Christmas services yet:


Hope that helps!
