Austrian Lakes and Mountains Half-Day Tour from Salzburg

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
On the Austrian Lakes and Mountains Salzburg Sightseeing Tour, experience the breathtaking beauty of one of Austria's most beautiful regions - the Lake District - just beyond the gates of Salzburg. Your tour begins with a scenic view of Salzburg before touring the scenic and historical landmarks of the beautiful Lake District - the region where Salzburg's Prince Archbishops held royal hunts and the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph and his family spent their summer vacations.

Enjoy a breath-taking boat ride from St Gilgen to St Wolfgang and some free time in picturesque Village of St. Wolfgang before returning to Salzburg

  • Travel in comfort in a coach from Salzburg and enjoy a boat trip (seasonal)
  • Great choice for nature lovers who want to see Austrian lakes and mountains
  • Enjoy in-depth insights from a guide as you visit places like Fuschl Castle
  • Visit off-the-tourist-trail St. Wolfgang and drink at a local pub
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a central location in Salzburg and then begin your coach journey toward the Austrian lakes. Along the way, listen to commentary from your guide about the important sights around you, such as Fuschl Castle, which was the former home of royalty before it was transformed into a luxury hotel. In St. Wolfgang, visit the pilgrimage church and see the winged gothic altar (one of the most beautiful painted altar shrines in European art). After this, enjoy a break and a refreshment at the White Horse Inn. During certain months of the year (usually April to October), you can also enjoy a boat ride on Lake Wolfgang to St. Gilgen, the birthplace of Mozart’s mother. Then, get back on the coach and travel past Lake Mondsee and Huttenstein Castle. The tour ends with a return journey to Salzburg.

This tour was largely disappointing. If you don't get the front seat you can't see anything, there's no legroom (I'm not tall and i had to sit with my knees to the side) and the suspension in the back made for a bumpy ride. I...More

The turquoise color of lake water is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Boat trip by the lake is sensational. Beautiful views of the mountains. The small town of Saint Wolfgang looks like an enchanted fairy tale town. Friendly and humorous guide

Well worth doing. A very good driver and guide. Most of what we'd done previously on the Sound of Music tour was done again, but still worth seeing such lovely views again. A most enjoyable boat cruise on a lake, but not enough seats for...More

It stated you pick up from hotels, yet after I had paid for this tour it states we need to travel to a bus station to collect the coach?
