Full description

Explore the stunning region of Salzkammergut, a Unesco World Heritage Site on a guided tour. See the snow-white castle, the beautiful alpine regions, towns like Hallstatt, Traunkirchen, and more.

Enjoy a convenient pickup directly from your centrally-located Vienna hotel or opt to head to a central meeting point if you're staying at a hotel outside of the pickup area or in other accommodation like an apartment.

Board your bus and depart to the stunning region of Salzkammergut. Your first stop is the Schloss Ort, a snow-white castle where countless couples dream of celebrating their weddings. Take the opportunity to snap some photos on its famous wooden bridge.

Continue to the heart of the Salzkammergut region, the fabulous town of Hallstatt, set on the shores of an azure-blue lake. Ascend to the Skywalk to enjoy breathtaking views over the town, lake, and mountains.

You will have some free time for lunch, to wander the narrow streets, or hire a boat to explore from the water at your own expense. On the way back to Vienna (in the summertime), make a stop at the charming resort town of Traunkirchen, located on the bank of the deepest lake in Austria.

Admire the unforgettable natural landscape from this lovely place, before continuing to Vienna where your tour will end at the Vienna State Opera.

My family had our Christmas Day trip at Hallstatt. It was very organized. Bus transport is perfect and our travel guide Sofia is excellent. It’s a long hour drive but Sofia will ensure it’s worth it with her historical stories and classical music during the trip. As any other tour, time is very important and expect long queues for tourist spots. It was an memorable experience especially for my kids. Thank you.

Spent Christmas day on this trip, and it was worth it! The weather was bright and sunny. Our guide Sofia was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained throughout the long ride. Hallstatt was simply beautiful. On a busy day you may have to wait about 45 minutes to get to the skywalk because of the queue (like we did), and about 30 mins on the way down. But the views are worth the wait, I would say. The town itself is small and charming. Although it was a long and busy day, we had enough time to explore, have lunch by ourselves, get some souvenirs and so on. I would definitely recommend this day trip.

Unnecessary stops between Viena and Hallstatt making you have very little time to properly enjoy Hallstatt. After what we paid I think it was very rude and unethical of the guide and driver to ask for a tip at the end. The guide’s English was not the best so sometimes I couldn’t understand him
