Our tour to Salzkammergut starts with a trip from Vienna to Gmunden, home of the beautiful Gmundner ceramics. Here, our first highlight awaits us: Idyllic Orth castle, located on a tiny island in the Traunsee lake. Our short stop provides an excellent opportunity to take pictures of the beautiful castle and the impressive mountain ranges that surround it.
We travel onward to Hallstatt, a historic town that has been photographed a million times – and even replicated. Nestled between the lake and the mountainside, the town will charm you with its narrow lanes and unique wooden buildings.
On a city walk, you will learn about the 7000-year history of Hallstatt, the mighty salt caves that were the foundation of the region’s wealth, and the tragedies it has seen. One of the highlights of our Hallstatt tour is, without doubt, the ossuary, where hand-painted skulls recall a nearly forgotten tradition.
