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.
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 to enjoy the atmosphere of this tiny city
