Vienna Private Tour: Salzburg via Hallstatt


Enjoy the Austrian lake district and the lakeside village Hallstatt in elegance on an 8-hour private tour departing from Vienna. The journey ends in Salzburg, where you may choose to end the day in your hotel or take the train back to Vienna as an option (it is a ride of about 2h30min).

The Lake District, locally referred to as the “Salzkammergut,” is the only place in Austria where the most picturesque elements are so densely clustered together.

This region of Austria is utterly unique due to the presence of mountains, lakes, and one of the most picturesque lakeside communities in the world.

Tour Overview

Prepare for the 10:00 am pick-up and board your luxurious tour vehicle. Enjoy the scenery as you travel through the Lake District; the first lake, Lake Traunsee, is about 600 feet deep and is located on the route to Hallstatt. It is about 2 1/2 hours from Vienna to the Salzkammergut Lake District.

Your private guide will point out to you the must-sees of Hallstatt, which include a lovely photo spot of Hallstatt, Charnel House (Bone House), Hallstatt Museum, Hallstatt Waterfall “Waldbachstrub,” the Sky View Platform, Hallstatt’s local residential area, and more. Hallstatt is the destination and the highlight of this full-day tour. You will get two and a half hours to tour Hallstatt and eat lunch at a lakeside restaurant.

You will then arrive to the castle of Fuschl. Before continuing to Salzburg, take a photo of the Fuschl Castle with the emerald-green Lake Fuschlsee in the background.

Your private trip comes to an end with a drop-off at your Salzburg City hotel.

Wonderful What a wonderful tour! Patrick is a wealth of information about the area. We stopped at a number of places to take pictures of the most gorgeous scenery on the way to Hallstatt. He made a reservation at a lovely restaurant in Hallstatt where we ordered traditional Austrian food. Patrick took care of every detail. He was so easy to talk to and was eager to answer all our questions and offered recommendations of places in Salzburg to eat. Great private tour

Immersive & Engaging Started with a no fuss booking with Manfred who gave the good advise to start at 9am rather than 10am to capture as much daylight. Patrick our guide was fun, informative and accomodative. Took us to local detours to see a waterfall and gave us lots of little tips along the way. Would highly recommend.

Excellent Great tour and great friendly guide. 👌🏻 Highly recommended!!!! Would definitely use again. 👍🏻👍🏻
Highly recommend This was a wonderful experience for our group of 6! Patrick kindly stopped at several beautiful lake view photo ops along the way before we went to the salt mine (entry fee not included) and Hallstat. Everyone had fun at the salt mine, and we enjoyed a nice meal overlooking the lake thanks to Patrick's recommendation in Hallstat, a charming little town. The door-to-door service from our Salzburg hotel was fantastic.

Perfect Day Trip From Munich Outstanding!!! Patrick was the perfect guide. We were staying in Munich, Patrick is based in Salzburg and drove to Munich to pick us up (that’s how this tour works), so we had a Salzburg expert taking us around Salzburg. We picked the return train option for the end of the day, and Patrick walked us into the station, bought the tickets, and guided us to the platform to return to Munich. Honestly the train return was best as we slept. This is the perfect Munich day trip! Patrick is a rock star tour guide.

Excellent trip The view was amazing and I think we have the best time of the year for the trip. At beginning of the October colors of the trees were amazing. I stayed two days in Salzburg Austria at Hous am Moss, Cleanness of the place and relaxed atmosphere were amazing. Helpful owners even arrange an early breakfast so we could catch the plane from Munich. Thank you

Sound of Music/Lake District/Hallstatt Not sure if this was the same tour we were on, but we had Patrick as our guide and Manfred as our driver for this personal Sound of Music tour on our way to Hallstatt. It was the highlight of our trip to Austria!We decided while visiting our daughter, who was studying abroad in Vienna, to visit Salzburg as well. My husband got us this tour and we all thoroughly enjoyed it!! We have so many pictures, I can't add all of them. Patrick provided so much detail and insight into Austria for us! It was wonderful.I highly recommend!!
