Salzkammergut Tour

From Lake Wolfgangsee to the “Mozart Village” of St. Gilgen: A guided bus tour of the Salzkammergut takes you to the most beautiful corners of this picturesque region.

Where the emperor spent his summer holidays

Glistening lakes, mighty mountains and broad forests: The Salzkammergut is especially rich in natural beauty. No wonder, then, that even back in imperial times, it was a place that people longed to visit. And today, an absolute must-see during any visit to Salzburg! A four-hour bus tour will show you the most important landmarks and towns of the Salzkammergut region.

Fuschlsee and St. Gilgen

After departing Salzburg City, the tour will first take you past Lake Fuschl and its castle. This former hunting lodge of the prince-archbishops is now a luxury hotel. You now continue to St. Gilgen, nicknamed the “Mozart Village”, since it was here that W. A. Mozart’s mother, Anna Maria Pertl, was born. Later, Mozart’s sister, Nannerl, got married and moved here, living in the same house where her mother had been born.

Romantic Ferry Ride across the Wolfgangsee

From the beginning of May until the end of October, a very special highlight awaits you: a ride on the Wolfgangsee ferry from St. Gilgen to St. Wolfgang. Once there, you will be able to visit the pilgrimage church with its gothic winged altar by Michael Pacher. The “Weisses Rössl” – in English, the “White Horse Inn” – is the famous location of a popular musical and movie.

Krottensee and Mondsee

The return ride will take you alongside the shores of the legendary Krottensee and past Schloss Hüttenstein, at the foot of the Schafberg. Yet another area of the Salzkammergut well worth seeing is Mondsee. The church in Mondsee will quickly remind “Sound of Music” fans of the wedding scene with Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.
