The Austrian Salzkammergut is a region of lush green valleys and sparkling blue lakes where idyllic villages with frescoed houses enhance the beauty of this unique cultural and natural paradise. Famous for being the setting for the film ‘The Sound of Music’, this area displays beauty like no other. However it’s not only the music immortalised by the famous film that is associated with this idyllic region, Mozart was born in the city of Salzburg and his memory lives on in the historic capital. This enchanting tour will include a daily helping of sheer Alpine splendour.

Day 3

We take a tour to the magical city of Salzburg with a guided walking tour. Don’t miss the famed Getreidegasse, the narrow little street in which Mozart was born. Of course no visit to Salzburg would be complete without a stroll around the glorious Mirabel Gardens with their ornate and colourful fountains.

Day 4

Today we have a ‘scenic tour of the Austrian Lakes. We start at Mondsee with free time to explore the historic town and see the 15th century church setting for the wedding scene in the Sound of Music where Captain von Trapp marries Maria. Next it’s onto the traditional Austrian village of St Gilgen, where Mozart’s mother lived. It’s full of character with its frescoed houses, many shops and bustling cafes. We take a boat trip across the still calm waters of Lake Wolfgangsee to the lovely town of St Wolfgang where we will spend the remainder of the afternoon. We include a return journey on the olde-world Schafberg Cog Railway famous for its stunning views over much of the Salzkammergut Lake District and Lake Wolfgangsee.

Day 5

We travel to Lake König, or the King’s Lake, surrounded by majestic mountain scenery and famous for its grand echo, which can reverberate up to seven times. We continue to Hallein to visit the fascinating and oldest salt mine in the world, famous for its white gold.

Day 6

After breakfast we visit Bad Ischl, the spa town made famous by Emperor Franz Josef where he set up his summer residence. We continue to the picturesque lakeside village of Hallstatt, nestled between the edge of the Hallstätter See and the towering Dachstein mountains and one of the most photographed lakeside villages in Europe.

We travel to our overnight bed & breakfast accommodation.
