Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide at your central Vienna hotel and set out on the scenic journey to Salzkammergut. Keep your camera to hand as you wind through the heart of the Austrian Alps and marvel at the panoramic mountain views.

Stop at Admont Abbey, one of Austria’s oldest abbeys, where you can admire the grand Baroque architecture and take a peek in the library – the largest monastic library in the world.

Pass through the UNESCO-listed landscapes of Salzkammergut en-route to Hallstatt village, and hear about the region’s historic significance and rich mining heritage from your guide. Then, set out on a walking tour and follow your guide along the pretty lakefront, past the medieval half-timbered buildings and through the lively Market Square.

Finally, visit the handicrafts center of Gmunden, a town perched on the banks of the Traunsee River and set against a dramatic backdrop of mountains. Snap photos of the Ort Castle, which appears to be floating in the center of the lake, then learn more about the town’s craft-making heritage as you browse the many shops and workshops. Perhaps pick up some unique hand-made souvenirs to remind you of your visit.

After a full day exploring the lake district, jump back on the bus for the return journey to Vienna and end your tour in the city center.

Views are beautiful, Tourist event wasn’t the best
Joshua93z

Pros: Hallstatt is so beautiful. Views are amazing. When you go, take the skywalk, you get an even more great view of the mountains and the water. Cons: Tour guide talks too much on the bus. You spend as much time on the bus getting to Hallstatt as you do in Hallstatt. Your actual free time is 3-4 hours. And there is far too much to see and it kills the joy when you have to kinda rush.

My only complaints were: 1. The bus did not have charging ports for phones 2. The tour guide did not stop talking. Whilst she was very knowledgeable- 3 straight hours of her talking was unbearable.

A fun day out but felt a little rushed

We enjoyed seeing Admont and Hallstatt but couldn’t help but feel a little rushed. We really needed at least another hour at Hallstatt to fully enjoy the town and unfortunately wasted an hour coming down from the sky walk! The queue was very long and it was terribly cold.

Great potential

Fantastic opportunity to see the abbey library, but unclear visibility of the guide meant the group drifted apart before we could start the tour so a lot of time waiting which meant we missed a big chunk of time to see the xmas market. Tour guide tried her best to cover english and Russian which meant it was hard work to just enjoy the view. It felt like a constant stream of words. Hallstatt was lovely and a great journey make better by the snow covering.

one word... the whole day was excellent! Saw way more than we expected, weather was super. Would have liked to stop here and there for more pictures but that would be impossible for time and space to park bus. Wonderful day!

Halstatt tour

This tour is wrong is so many ways. The tour tells you it’s 13 hours but they keep you trapped in the bus for 9-10 hours of that and the rest is a short stop at Admont abbey which is avoidable anyway and then Halstatt. The tour guide whose name I donor remember was terrible too. She talked NON STOP for 9 hours of that bus journey telling history tales. It was like a history lesson. The tour guys must know it’s a Long journey so they try and fill it in with talk I suppose. Then they insist on playing this music non stop so even if you felt like snoozing or some peace and quiet you won’t get it!! She was rude and arrogant. None of the times she mentioned for destinations were true. The driver would take detours that made the road journey longer but she wouldn’t mention it! Then getting into Halstatt we got stuck in a traffic jam for half hour. She wouldn’t tell us until asked that they had one tunnel shut so that caused the jam! This seems like a new tour company. If you want to try around for 10 hours in a bus looking outside the window then this tour is for you else AVOID.

Loved this day trip! The Austrian Alps are beautiful. We loved driving through them. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very good. Our driver was exceptional! We were amazed at his ability to safely maneuver the bus on small roads and in small parking lots. Overall this is definitely a trip we would do again!
