Tour Overview

Be ready for pickup at 10.00 am at your Salzburg hotel. Make yourself comfortable in your comfortable touring vehicle and experience the beautiful landscape that the famous ‘Salzkammergut’ lake region has to offer. After a short drive from Salzburg, you’ll reach the castle of Fuschl. Capture a picture of the castle of Fuschl with the emerald-green Lake Fuschlsee as its backdrop, before heading on to St. Gilgen with Lake Wolfgang, the next photo stop.

The next highlight is Wolfgang Lake and the villages St. Gilgen and St. Wolfgang. Capture a picture of St. Wolfgang from a great viewpoint before arriving at the next town, in Bad Ischl. The drive will take you through Bad Ischl, which is famous for the “Kaiser” (Emperor) Villa and the Café Zauner, and on to Bad Goisern and Hallstatt.

Tripadvisor review

Patrick our driver and guide was amazing. We learned so much on this tour about the country and the history of the area. We made a couple stops along the way to take breathetaking photos. Once in Hallstatt you feel like you have been transported to a fairy tale town. Minus the hordes of tourists (just like us) the town is magical. We hope to make it back one day and stay the night. If you are considering this tour ask for Patrick he made this tour awesome.
