Heading east from Salzburg City the first lake we pass is the emerald Fuschlsee and we make our first stop above the Mozart village St. Gilgen by the lake Wolfgangsee. This lake is the centre piece of the tour. At St. Gilgen we visit the Christmas market and then further around the lake to St. Wolfgang village. At St.Wolfgang you can wander the Christmas market stalls lining the streets and visit the pilgrimage church where you can view Michael Pacher’s winged Gothic altar.
Then we drive to Hallstatt, passing Bad Ischl (Kaiserstadt – Imperial Town) and Bad Goisern on a scenic route with great views until we reach the UNESCO village Hallstatt. Here we have time for lunch and leisure.
From Hallstatt we will take a panoramic route via the emerald lake Attersee and then the Mondsee, the largest lakes in the Salzkammergut. In Mondsee village we have some time for visiting St.Michael’s Church, a pilgrimage site that was also the location of the wedding scene in the “The Sound of Music” film.
