On this tour you will not only experience the beauty of the Austrian Lake District, including the UNESCO World Heritage site Hallstatt, the pearl of the Salzkammergut, but you can also choose between a visit of the oldest salt mine in the world or probably the most spectacular viewing platform in the Alps the 5fingers (weather permitting)
The UNESCO Cultural Heritage Committee wrote about Hallstatt: "This alpine region is an outstanding example of natural landscape of great beauty and scientific interest.
Escape Salzburg for a private excursion to Hallstatt. Journey along the emerald-green Fuschlsee to our first stop at Castle Fuschl. Travel on to St. Gilgen and take a stunning photo of the beautiful scenery from a great view point. Leaving St. Gilgen and driving along the Wolfgangsee our trip will bring us to Bad Ischl, famous for its spa and the Emperor's summer palace. Driving through Bad Goisern we will reach one of the highlights of our tour, Hallstatt: the pearl of the Lake District. In Hallstatt you can choose between taking the panorama funicular railway up the mountain at Hallstatt and Experience the magnificent "World Heritage view" 360 meters above town, on the Hallstatt sky walk and continuing on to the oldest salt mine in the world or a visit to the 5fingers viewing platform, this is probably the most spectacular viewing platform in the Alps and reaches out like a hand over the 400 m drop. On our way home from Hallstatt, the Gosausee with its backdrop of the glistening Dachstein glacier awaits us

We were very pleased with the full-day tour which Thomas gave use on October 9, 2017. He is very knowledgeable and made some adjustments in the travel plans to accommodate our special interests. Visiting Eagles Nest was very enlightening. Thomas pointed out things that most tour guides would probably overlook. And my wife walking down the aisle in the Basilica of St. Michael, just like Maria/Julie Andrews did, created a lasting memory.
