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 in St. Wolfgang town center.

Afterward, 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.

Having reached Hallstatt and the highlight of this full-day tour, your private guide will point out the must-sees of Hallstatt to you, which include a beautiful photo spot of Hallstatt, Charnel House (Bone House), Hallstatt Museum, Hallstatt Waterfall “Waldbachstrub”, Hallstatt’s local residence area and more. You will have 2 hours to explore Hallstatt and all these sites on your own as well as to have lunch in one of the great lakeside restaurants in Hallstatt (at your own expense).

The ride back to Salzburg will take you via Gosau (including another great photo stop!), Dachstein Mountain Range, Russbach and Golling. After eight hours exploring one of Austria’s most beautiful areas, your private tour will conclude with drop-off at your Salzburg city hotel.

We had a fantastic, unforgettable day in Salzburg with MCM on the Hallstatt and Wolfgang trip yesterday. Patrick, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about Hallstatt and the city of Salzburg. I can’t wait to return and see the other attractions Salzburg has to offer. A truly amazing day. We intend to return.

Tripadvisor review

Our tour guide and driver, Manfred Fussl, was superb! He possesses and imparted a deep knowledge of the country, it’s people, it’s history, and social trends. It was our pleasure to share the day with him in the spectacular backdrop of Hallstatt and other cities on the way.
