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.

A great chance to get out of a very busy Christmas Vienna. It’s a long trip but actually the time went quickly. Dasha our guide was great at making sure everyone knew when to come back to the coach and the timing all went perfectly. Loved her way of presenting Austrian history and interesting and fun facts. On the way back they played the sound of music on the coach which was cheesy but fun. The places we visited were just beautiful. For me there was enough time in the little village to go up on the funicular railway have a look round and we ate up there too. The only thing that I would change is the coat of the coffee etc at the motorway service stations we stopped at. It’s not a cheap trip and I wasn’t sure if I should use one of my days in Vienna to do this but I am so glad I did. Driver was very good and drove steadily and safely and coach was comfortable and clean. Thanks again to the lovely Dasha for giving us such a lovely trip.

Great tour with our guide Dasha. Unfortunately, it was very foggy and hazy today, which is why the view from the viewpoints was very limited. The breaks at the service areas were too long for me personally, so I would have preferred to have stayed longer in Hallstatt. But with Dasha it was an all-round nice and informative tour. If you want to see something great outside of Vienna, you've come to the right place.

This experience was fantastic and definitely is worth it! Dasha was a great guide, she gave us a lot of information as we were passing numerous sights along the way and she was extremely personable and funny. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is considering it. Hallstatt was truly stunning and had breathtaking views. Thank you for organising such well put together day trip and I will definitely continue using this website for trips after this experience!
