Salzkammergut Lakes Tour Itinerary

After meeting in Mirabellplatz in the centre of Salzburg, you'll set off towards the southeast in the direction of the Austrian lake district, a region known as Salzkammergut. This stunning area, nestled in the Austrian Alps, is home to breathtakingly beautiful landscapes of verdant mountains, sparkling lakes and traditional villages. The perfect location for an escape from the city centre - you'll feel as though you're in a fairy tale!

Driving towards Fuschl am See, you'll arrive in Sankt Gilgen, a small village on the banks of Lake Wolfgang, where Mozart's mother was born. Here, you'll enjoy a boat cruise on the lake, during which you'll have incomparable panoramic views of the surrounding mountain scenery. You'll then enjoy a stroll around the hilly market town of St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut. Visit its church, home to a famous Gothic altar created by Austrian artist Michael Pacher, and admire the The White Horse Inn, a hotel famous for being the location of an operetta of the same name.

Once we're back on the road to Salzburg, you'll go past the mysterious KrottenseeHüttenstein Castle and Lake Mondsee while we tell you all about the legends surrounding these spots.

You'll return to Salzburg for approximately 6 pm.

Important information

Please note that the boat trip on Lake Wolfgang only operates between May and October. If you take this tour during the rest of the year, the cruise will be substituted with a tasting of typical local coffee and pastries.
