Location: Austrian Lakes: Hallstatt, Bad Ischl & St. Wolfgang
Today we explore the stunning winter scenery of the Austrian Lake District. We begin the day in the beautiful village of Hallstatt; one of the most photographed spots in Austria, before continuing to the pretty town of St. Wolfgang. This afternoon we head to Bad Ischl, the former summer residence of the great Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The town has been associated with the Habsburg dynasty for over 700 years and is home to the Imperial Villa in which the Emperor, Franz Josef I, called “heaven on earth” for him and his family.
Location: Ceský Krumlov
We journey across the River Danube into the Czech Republic and to the delightful town of Ceský Krumlov on our optional excursion. Dominated by a castle stretching over the meandering Vltava River, Ceský Krumlov's narrow cobblestone streets offer cosy inns, inviting coffee shops, and ancient taverns.
Location: Salzburg & Mondsee
We begin the day in Salzburg, one of the most beautiful cities in Austria. From lovely squares and medieval lanes, to gothic churches and quaint cafés, you will have time at leisure to explore everything Salzburg has to offer. This afternoon we visit the crystal clear Lake Mondsee where we spend time in the delightful and principal resort of Mondsee, located on the banks of the lake. Home to the Basilica of St. Michael, the famous wedding church where Maria married Georg von Trapp in the film ‘The Sound of Music’, this gothic former monastery is just as striking today as ever with its two towers stretching 52 metres high.
