Tour 2 | Salzkammergut - Lakes & Mountains 2018/19
Join us on our trip to the romantic Lake District Salzkammergut, where Salzburgs Prince Archbishops held royal hunts and the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph and his family spent their summer vacations.
The tour will leave Salzburg and pass by Lake Fuschl with castle Fuschl, now a five star hotel, on its shores. Explore the little town of St. Gilgen, where Mozart's mother was born and enjoy a 45-minute boat ride to St. Wolfgang (from May 1st to October 26th). During winter time, instead of the boat ride, there will be a coffee break (included) at one of traditional Austrian coffee house.
At St. Wolfgang your guide will show you the famous pilgrimage church with its carved gothic winged altar by Michael Pacher. There will be some time to explore the picturesque town or have a coffee break on the terrace of the famous White Horse Inn (Weisses Rössl) - coffee break in the White Horse Inn is optional and not included. We continue our journey along the Krottensee with castle Hüttenstein and drive along Lake Mondsee before we return to Salzburg.
