Experience the beauty of the Austrian Lake District, including the UNESCO World Heritage site Hallstatt, the pearl of the Salzkammergut on an 6 hour private luxury minivan tour. Drive along the emerald-green Fuschlsee and stop at its castle; take a picture from a great view point above the town of St Gilgen where Mozart’s mother was born. Visit the town of Bad Ischl the former summer residence of the emperor Franz Josef. You will have 2.5 hours to explore Hallstatt, where you can visit all the hidden gems and of course the must-sees and enjoy 7000 years of history. Marvel at the Gosausee with the glistening Dachstein glacier as its backdrop.

This is a great excursion for anyone who loves incredible scenery and history.

After meeting your private guide at your hotel or anther central location in Salzburg chosen by you, hop inside your private, deluxe minivan and drive out of the city on your way to Hallstatt. As your tour is private, your itinerary is flexible and can be personalized around your individual needs, so feel free to talk to your guide about any sights you want to see more or less of during your explorations.

Soak in the stunning views as you travel along the shores of emerald Lake Fuschl (Fuschlsee) toward your first stop near Castle Fuschl. Admire the views of this fairy tale-like castle and continue to the village of St. Gilgen, the birthplace of Mozart’s mother.

Take photos of the magnificent scenery from a viewpoint here, and then trace the banks of Lake Wolfgang (Wolfgangsee) to Bad Ischl, an elegant town famous for its spa waters and imperial summer palace (Kaiservilla), a favorite retreat of the Emperor Franz Josef.

Next, journey on through Bad Goisern to a highlight of your tour: Hallstatt, known as the 'pearl' of the Salzkammergut. On arrival, your guide will point out the must-sees and hidden gems for you to explore during approximately 2.5 hours of free time — more than enough for you to enjoy the town and have lunch (own expense) at one of its picturesque lakeside restaurants.

After leaving Hallstatt, make a stop at Lake Gosau (Gosausee) to drink in the awe-inspiring views over the glassy lake to the Dachstein glacier in the distance.

Then, journey along the Dachstein Mountain range, and through the ski resort of Russbach to Golling before continuing to Salzburg, where your tour ends with a drop-off at your chosen central location.
