The Lake District with its natural beauty and exceptional countryside hosted the Austrian Emperor Franz-Josef and his family for their summer vacations. Splendid hunts were held by Salzburgs Prince Archbishops. In this area you will experience the breathtaking beauty of one of Austria's most beautiful regions - the Lake District just beyond the gates of the city of Salzburg.

St. Gilgen

Also Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was inspired by St. Gilgen, where his mother was born! Like many guests from all over the world he once appreciated the spectacular scenery and the crystal clear lake. Walking along the lake or going up the Zwölferhorn mountain in a cable railway you can enjoy the unspoilt nature.

Zwölferhorn (1522 m)

Walking along the lake or going up the Zwölferhorn mountain in a cable railway you can enjoy the unspoilt nature.

Boat ride on Lake Wolfgang

Another unforgettable experience is a boat trip between St. Gilgen, Strobl and St. Wolfgang

St. Wolfgang

You must make your way to the waterfront and see the lake up close. It is astonishing how blue and clear the lake is. Most of the glacial lakes in Austria bear this characteristic which is why the Salzkammergut region (where many of these lakes are found within the Austrian Alps) is so wonderfully beautiful.

The St. Wolfgang Pilgrimage Church & White Horse Inn

This is probably the major sight in St. Wolfgang. This church was built in the 14th and 15th centuries. This incredible church is virtually a gallery of religious art, with several altars (Gothic to Baroque), a showy pulpit, a fine organ and many statues and paintings. The best piece is the winged high altar by Michael Pacher between 1471 and 1481. Afterwards have a break along the riverside at the famous White Horse Inn.

Bad Ischl

The Kaiservilla, the Imperial Villa, was the summer residence of the Emperor of Austria and later of Austria-Hungary. This building is still the residence of the Habsburg family. The apartments which can be visited in the Imperial Villa are the salons, the Emperor's private rooms and several of the family rooms. Empress Elisabeth's private rooms, with the exception of her studay, which can still be viewd, were considerably altared by other family members who took them over after her death in 1898, and are now the apartments occupied by her great-grandson and his family. They are not open to the public. Viewing is only by means of conducted tours.

The guides provided in Salzburg and Innsbruck were world class. Highly recommend the Hotel Sacher and all of the tours suggested in both cities, both very memorable and enjoyable.

My husband and I had a jam-packed itinerary on our 37 day European adventure; Panorama Tours & Travel provided exceptional service! Every arrival/transfer (to and from airport and trains) was right on time: friendly drivers went out of their way to acclimate us to our surroundings and help schlep luggage. The private tours and guides were phenomenal: Dr. Christine Horvath conveyed a wealth of knowledge about Vienna, the Wachau Danube Valley, Krems-Durnstein, the Abbey Melk, etc. Mag. Martina Gyuroka was charming on our 1/2 day walking tour in Salzburg. And our favorite guide of all was Lisa, who took us an an all day adventure to Halstatt , thru stunningly beautiful mountain villages in the "Salzkammergut"-Lake District. Lisa greeted us at our hotel the second day wearing a dirndl; such a sweet gesture after we had been chatting earlier about family and local traditions, and also directed me to a shop in Salzburg where I purchased the best-locoing raincoat ever-the "Derbe"!
