Join us on a sightseeing tour to picturesque Salzkammergut, known for its crystal-clear lakes and majestic mountains. Experience history first hand on a walk through the 7000-year-old Hallstatt.

Schloss Orth

Our tour to Salzkammergut starts with a trip from Vienna to Gmunden, home of the beautiful Gmundner ceramics. Here, our first highlight awaits us: Idyllic Orth castle, located on a tiny island in the Traunsee lake. Our short stop provides an excellent opportunity to take pictures of the beautiful castle and the impressive mountain ranges that surround it.

A visit to Hallstatt

We travel onward to Hallstatt, a historic town that has been photographed a million times – and even replicated. Nestled between the lake and the mountainside, the town will charm you with its narrow lanes and unique wooden buildings.

On a city walk, you will learn about the 7000-year history of Hallstatt, the mighty salt caves that were the foundation of the region’s wealth, and the tragedies it has seen. One of the highlights of our Hallstatt tour is, without doubt, the ossuary, where hand-painted skulls recall a nearly forgotten tradition.

Boat tour and Skywalk

A boat tour will give you a wonderful view of Hallstatt from the lake, after which you have some free time for lunch or some more sightseeing. We meet again at the Salzbergbahn, the funicular that will take us up to the “Skywalk” viewing platform, from where we have a breathtaking view of Hallstatt and the lake from above. Afterwards, the bus tour concludes with a ride back to Vienna.
