Lakes & Mountains

Tour 2

The Lake district with its natural beauty and exceptional landscape already hosted the Austrian Emperor Franz Josef and his family for their summer vacation. Splendid hunts were held there by Salzburgs Prince Archbishops.

On this tour you can experience the breathtaking beauty of one of Austria's most beautiful regions - the lake district just beyond the gates of Salzburg. With a view down to Salzburg we begin our excursion to the scenic and historical landmarks of the surroundings. We will point out the impressive hunting castle Fuschl, today a luxury hotel, where the Prince Archbishops spent many seasons.

In St. Wolfgang there is time to visit the famous winged Gothic altar by Michael Pacher and a stop at the 'White Horse Inn' for refreshments. From St. Wolfgang we will go by boat (May 1st - Oct 26th) to St. Gilgen on the other side of Lake St. Wolfgang. After 25 minutes we will land in St. Gilgen, where Mozart's mother was born. Passing Castle Hüttenstein we continue along the Mondsee. The ever changing and contrasting scenery will make this tour an unforgettable memory.
