On this private day trip from Salzburg, you will explore the beauty of the Hohe Tauern National Park. Known for its setting with Lake Zell and the surrounding Hohe Tauern Mountains, the park is home to some of Austria’s most beautiful
scenery, including the alpine resort of Zell am See. Explore the town, take a lake cruise by boat, or ride the Porsche-designed gondola to the top of Schmittenhöhe. This Salzburg Tour also includes great photo stops at the Sound of Music picnic meadow, the Where Eagle’s Dare Castle of Werfen and also the best view point of Zell am See.
Meet your experienced local guide and driver at your hotel in Salzburg and board your luxurious minivan. Then your journey takes you through the Salzach Valley to the village of Werfen. Capture a breathtaking image of Werfen’s historic castle, which was featured in the movie “Where Eagles Dare” starring Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood. Werfen Castle is one of the most beautiful mountain fortresses in the Alps.
Werfen was also featured in the classic film Sound of Music. Return to your Sound of Music dreams by visiting the place where Maria and the children first sang Do-Re-Mi (Picnic Meadow).
