What our previous travellers have to say about this tour

"The highlight of our holiday was the visit to Traunsee Castle in Gmunden, which was fabulous and well worth a visit."

"My friend and I decided to take a late winter break, our chosen destination was a Christmas market in the Austrian Lake District, Linz and Salzburg. We booked this tour with Leger Holidays, with whom we have travelled with before and have always been satisfied.


After an overnight stay in Belgium, the duration of our holiday was based in St Georgen in Attengau, at the hotel Gruner Baum. We enjoyed our stay, the food and cleanliness was excellent, and the pleasant staff could not do enough for you. The location and facilities at the hotel were also excellent.

The drivers Ray and Arthur were very good, keeping the coach clean. They were also very helpful and up to speed with details of places we visited which included Linz and Salzburg, which both had excellent Christmas Markets. We also took a boat ride on Lake Wolfgangsee to St Gilgen.

We generally go on coach tours because you meet a variety of people and if you want to mix, it’s up to you. Usually you get talking to people when having meals and soon become part of a group.

The highlight of our holiday was the visit to Traunsee Castle in Gmunden, which was fabulous and well worth a visit with its excellent market and beautiful scenery.

I can honestly say we could not find fault with anything, and are looking forward to booking another tour, which will of course be with Leger- first class!
