SALZBURG - SURROUNDINGS

Salzburg Lake District - Traunsee

Or are you more into lakes and mountains, rivers and woods, old pilgrim churches and typical farm-houses, rack-railways and paddle steamers?

The surroundings of the old town centre and the City of Salzburg offer a huge variety of attractions, too.

 

Salzburg Hellbrunn Palace

I could show you Leopoldskron Palace, used partly as the home of the Von Trapp family in the movie or

Hellbrunn Palace with its trick fountain garden, commissioned by Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus von Hohenems around 1615, which is always worth a visit to have some fun and enjoy.

Sightseeing around Salzburg: Salt Mines Bad Dürrnberg

Have you ever been inside a mountain? Not yet? Then let me take you on a tour to the Salt Mines at Bad Dürrnberg close to Hallein or in Berchtesgaden. We will go inside the mountain on a little train and there we will discover more about the former 'White Gold of the Prince-Archbishops' of Salzburg.

Sightseeing and guided tours to Berchtesgaden - Lake Königssee

Maybe you prefer to get on top of a mountain rather than inside a mountain, then come with me on a tour to the so-called 'Eagle’s Nest' on the Obersalzberg built during the Nazi regime. You’ll have a fantastic view of the Bavarian Alps and I could tell you more about the diverse history of this place. The best way to discover Lake Königssee, also situated close to Berchtesgaden and surrounded by high mountains, is to take a ride on one of the electric passenger boats.

Sightseeing around Salzburg Lake District - Mondsee

While in Salzburg, you shouldn’t miss a visit to the Lake District, not far from the city, with altogether over seventy lakes and known also from the 'Sound of Music'. We would visit places situated around the biggest lakes such as Lake Mondsee, Lake Wolfgangsee, the Hallstättersee Lake and Lake Traunsee. There are several outstanding attractions in the Lake District, for example St. Michael’s Church in Mondsee and the characteristic town of St. Wolfgang with the White Horse Inn Restaurant and the Pilgrimage Church of St. Wolfgang.

We would do the tour in your coach or car. If you need any help organizing a coach or a taxi service, just let me know!
