“… NATURE OF EXTRAORDINARY BEAUTY ADDED TO SCIENTIFIC IMPORT …”

From Salzburg we will pass Fuschl Castle high above the mystic Lake Fuschlsee, in olden days a hunting residence, now used as a luxury hotel. Our first photo stop will be St. Gilgen, the village at Lake Wolfgangsee where W.A. Mozart’s mother was born. On the way there we will pass the headquarters of Red Bull, the world’s leading energy drink. Driving along the lakes, surrounded by impressive mountains and rock faces we will pass Bad Ischl, the former summer residence of the Austrian emperors, known for healing cures and world famous for operettas.

At last we will get to the very heart of Salzkammergut, the UNESCO Cultural Heritage of the World Hallstatt and Lake Hallstättersee which is described by the committee as “Nature of extraordinary beauty added to scientific import”. Here besides the beauty of the site you can marvel at archaeological excavations, findings from the oldest salt mine of the world, the world’s biggest collection of sculls with elaborate paintings and much more. The sensational findings even gave an entire epoch and a culture its names: The “Hallstatt Period” and “Hallstatt Culture” are scientific names for the Early Iron Age.  

You will never forget what many guests have called the most beautiful lake village in the world.

Our way back goes over the mountains and Gosau back to Salzburg.
