Included excursion to Salzburg with its lovely squares, medieval lanes, Gothic churches and quaint cafés. It is also famed as the setting for ‘The Sound of Music’. An optional, guided walking tour is a wonderful way to see the sights featured in the film, along with many other attractions.
Not to be missed is our included tour of the Salzkammergut Lakes. Visit the crystal-clear lake of Mondsee before travelling on to St. Gilgen where you can admire the rolling countryside and rugged, rocky peaks. Perhaps take a gondola ride to the top of Mount Zwölferhorn (at extra cost, payable locally). Later, we continue to Hallstatt, one of the most photographed areas in Austria, before arriving in Gmunden, a lively spa town on the shores of Traunsee Lake.
Join our included, full-day excursion to Austria’s capital, Vienna. Once the centre of the Habsburg empire, Vienna’s regal imperial past is still there to be seen in many fine buildings and palaces. Our optional, guided sightseeing tour will show you the principal sights including the Hofburg Palace, the Parliament Building, the Opera House, National Theatre and the City Hall and also the home where Johann Strauss composed the famous Blue Danube Waltz.
Today’s optional excursion takes us up the Schafbergspitze on the Schafberg Train, the steepest steam cog railway in Austria with a stunning view of five glistening Salzkammergut Lakes. Afterwards, explore the pretty village of St. Wolfgang, then the spa town of Bad Ischl before following the shores of Lake Traunsee.

We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
