Take a picturesque journey into the Lake Region and St. Wolfgang, passing by Fuschl, St. Gilgen and Mondsee.
The Lake district with its natural beauty and exceptional landscape already hosted the Austrian Emperor Franz Josef and his family for their summer vacation. Splendid hunts were held there by Salzburgs Prince Archbishops.
On this tour, you can experience the breathtaking beauty of one of Austria's most beautiful regions - the lake district just beyond the gates of Salzburg. With a view down to Salzburg we begin our excursion to the scenic and historical landmarks of the surroundings.
