Heading for Lake Fuschlsee, already beyond the border of Salzburg City, we enter the great, scenic foothills of the Northern Alps with lovely villages. Passing by Fuschl Castle, high above the mystic Lake, and operating today as the luxury hotel Schloss Fuschl, you will get to know the location of the headquarters of Red Bull, the world’s leading energy drink. High above St. Gilgen, where W.A. Mozart’s mother was born and his sister lived during her first marriage, we will have a photo stop. You will be impressed by the incredible view over the Lake Wolfgangsee, the surrounding mountains and rock faces.
Then sit back and indulge in the drive through the wonderful scenery along the lake to the beautiful village, St. Wolfgang, well known from movies, operettas and the world famous White Horse Inn. There you can marvel at Michael Pacher’s winged Gothic altar and take some refreshments. For those who love boat rides, from May 1st until October 26th it is possible to enjoy it. Passing the Europe Monastery Gut Aich, Castle Hüttenstein and the picturesque Lake Krottensee we will drive along Lake Mondsee via the village Mondsee back to Salzburg.
