Highlights

The Lakes District, with its natural beauty and exceptional landscape, has hosted the Austrian Emperor Franz-Josef and his family for their summer holidays. Splendid hunts were held here by Salzburg's Prince Archbishops. On this tour you will discover the breathtaking beauty of one of Austria's most beautiful regions - the lakes district - just beyond the gates of Salzburg.

With a view down to Salzburg, you begin the excursion to the scenic and historical landmarks of the surroundings. The impressive hunting castle Fuschl, where the Prince Archbishops spent many seasons, is today a luxury hotel.

In St. Wolfgang, there will be time to visit the famous winged gothic altar by Michael Pacher and to stop at the 'White Horse Inn' for refreshments. From St. Wolfgang, you will travel by boat (27 Apr - 27 Oct) or coach to St. Gilgen on the other side of Lake Wolfgang. St. Gilgen is where Mozart's mother was born.

Passing Castle Huttenstein, you will continue along the Mondsee. The ever changing and contrasting scenery will make this tour an unforgettable memory. The tour ends at Mirabell Square.
