 Tour Overview

After a convenient pickup from your Salzburg hotel in a luxury minivan, your journey will take you to hidden gems of the Lakes and Mountains Region. This 8-hour private tour will bring you from one highlight to the next. Start with the Ploetz Waterfall and marvel at this unique waterfall, before arriving at the first lake. Capture a picture of the castle of Fuschl with the emerald-green lake as its backdrop. Continue on the orginal tour route of the Sound of Music to St. Gilgen with lake Wolfgang. On an off the beaten track road to another great hidden view point overlooking lake Wolfgang.

Continue to lake number two, three and four. Passing the very small lake Krottensee on your way to the lake Mondsee. On an off-the beaten track road to Unterach located at lake Attersee, the summer domicil of Gustav Klimt since 1900, many of his famous landscape pictures were painted right at this lake. After stopping at the Gustav Klimt memoral in Unterach, the next highlight is St. Wolfgang admire the beauty of the lakes and mountains on the off the beaten Track Road from Unterach at Attersee to Bad Ischl, the town where the emperor Franz Joseph was spending every summer and also had his Summer House, the Kaiser Villa. Here, we stop for 1 ½ hours to explore the town center, have coffee and pastry or some snack at the famous Café Zauner  (own expense).

After the stop in Bad Ischl there are still two highlights waiting for you, one is the lake side village St. Wolfgang followed by a boat ride from St. Wolfgang to St. Gilgen, that is the almost the entire length of that emerald lake.
