    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your central Vienna hotel and set out on the scenic journey to Salzkammergut. Keep your camera to hand as you wind through the heart of the Austrian Alps and marvel at the panoramic mountain views.

    Stop at Admont Abbey, one of Austria’s oldest abbeys, where you can admire the grand Baroque architecture and take a peek in the library – the largest monastic library in the world.

    Pass through the UNESCO-listed landscapes of Salzkammergut en-route to Hallstatt village, and hear about the region’s historic significance and rich mining heritage from your guide. Then, set out on a walking tour and follow your guide along the pretty lakefront, past the medieval half-timbered buildings and through the lively Market Square.

    Finally, visit the handicrafts center of Gmunden, a town perched on the banks of the Traunsee River and set against a dramatic backdrop of mountains. Snap photos of the Ort Castle, which appears to be floating in the center of the lake, then learn more about the town’s craft-making heritage as you browse the many shops and workshops. Perhaps pick up some unique hand-made souvenirs to remind you of your visit.

    After a full day exploring the lake district, jump back on the bus for the return journey to Vienna and end your tour in the city center.

    This tour was 13 hours long and there was some really high points and some low points. Admont Abbey: 5 stars - The outside of the abbey was very peaceful with a large pond. However the library is unbelievable. I was awestruck with the beauty of the white colors, the beautiful

    The scenery on this tour is spectacular. The Admont Abbey is a remarkable and beautiful gem. Would have been better to have silence while driving, than to listen to the barely multi-lingual guide struggle through basic English grammar. The combination of a very thick accent,

    Austrian countryside was very beautiful. We loved the little town Hallstatt. That was the highlight of the trip. However, the tour itself, particularly the tour guide was a NIGHTMARE! Having read what Chris G said in his review, I totally feel you! We booked an

    We booked an English-language tour. We were paired with a Russian-language tour group, which might have been fine if we had separate tour guides. We did not... Our guide was giving the tour in both English and Russian. Her accent was thick and hard to understand at times, but
