Join us for a journey through impressive Bavaria. In the blink of an eye we’ll have passed by Lake Chiemsee, arriving in Salzburg, the place where, on January 27, 1765, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart first caught sight of the outside world, in a three-room apartment located at Getreidegasse 9.
During your free time, definitely visit Mozarthaus, but save a little time to take in the Baroque splendor of Salzburg.
Afterward, forget all your troubles at the White Horse Inn at Lake Wolfgang, arrived at by traversing the wonderful landscapes of Salzkammergut. There you’ll be offered a boat ride directly to the legendary hotel (own expense).
St. Wolfgang is a spectacular Austrian town located on the shores of Lake Wolfgang and at the foot of the Schafberg Mountain in the Salzkammergut area. In the 10th century, as the legend tells it, St. Wolfgang, Bishop of Regensburg, hurled an ax and planned to create a church along the then-Abersee bay. The church housing Michael Pacher’s gothic altarpiece has since been a place of pilgrimage for many over the years. The town is also famous for its Weisses Roessl, or White Horse Inn, which is the setting for the famous musical comedy of the same name.
The Salzkammergut World Heritage Site, an expansive area that covers 52 municipalities, is basically the Austrian Lake District. Salzkammergut is composed of numerous lakes and mountains, stretching from Salzburg to the Dachstein Mountains, making it a popular tourist destination for adventure travelers looking to climb, cycle, and swim through this magnificent area. The most popular municipalities here are Hallstatt and St. Gilgen, where Mozart’s mother was born.
Also known as Wolfgangsee, this beautiful lake in the Salzkammergut area of Austria is a popular destination for resorts. Lake Wolfgang was the setting for the legend of its namesake Bishop of Regensburg, Saint Wolfgang, who in the 10th century founded a church here. He chose the destination by tossing an ax and seeing where it landed, according to legend. The towns and villages of St. Wolfgang, St. Gilgen, Strobl, Abersee, and Ried surround the lake area.
On this full-day sightseeing tour from Munich, you’ll learn about the city of Salzburg and its surrounding area. Learn about the history of Salzburg as well as the people who live there. Enjoy the must-see attractions in the city of Salzburg, such as the Hellbrunn Palace, the Leopoldskron Palace, the Salzburg old town, and more, before your journey takes you through beautiful countryside roads to the Lake District and beyond.
At the end of the day, you can either take the train back to Munich or stay the night at your Salzburg accommodation.
