Description

Combine 2 of the most popular attractions in Salzburg—the unbelievable salt mines, and the gorgeous lakes region nestled in the mountains above the city. Come into contact with Austria's ancient history and natural beauty as you travel from the dark caverns of the mine into the open vistas of the mountains.

Venture into the salt mines to discover the “white gold” of Salzburg. Don protective clothing to get into full miner mode before travelling on a former miner's train into the heart of the mountain. Listen as knowledgeable guides explain the incredible history and artistry of the mining technique. Further in the cave, ride down original mining slides. Then, board a raft and drift across a cavernous, underground salt lake before hopping on the miner's train to emerge from the underground labyrinth, returning to the outside world.

From the lines, venture upward into the enchanting mountains, travelling through Hof and Fuschl in the Lakes region. Stop in St. Gilgen—the birthplace of Mozart's mother—before continuing to St. Wolfgang. Enjoy the beauty of the area, and stop in at a local church boasting a unique 15th-century raised alter by Michael Packer. You can also see the Weiße Rössl Hoteln—the setting for the famous operetta “Im Weißen Rössl”—in St. Wolfgang. Enjoy picturesque scenes during the return trip as you pass Lake Krottensee, Hüttenstein Castle, and the shoreline of Lake Mondsee.

From May through October, you also enjoy a boat ride across Lake Wolfgang.
