Trip Summary
2 nights in Salzburg

Art lovers call Salzburg the Golden City of High Baroque; historians refer to it as the Florence of the North, or the German Rome; and music lovers know it as the Festival City - birthplace of Mozart and home of the world-famous Mozart Festival. Several beautiful castles and palaces dot the city. While Salzburg is a visual pageant of Baroque motifs, music is the element that shapes the life of the city. It is heard everywhere: in churches,castles, palaces, and, of course, concert halls.


2 nights in St Wolfgang am See

Enjoying a picturesque setting on the scenic shores of Lake Wolfgang, one of the most romantic lakes in Austria, St. Wolfgang is one of Europe's most enchanting lake resorts. Pretty painted houses and shops line the narrow cobbled streets delighting the tourists. The historic Schafberg cog railway (up to 5,800 ft.) provides a magnificent bird's eye view of the lake and surrounding Salzkammergut region. Lakeside activities are plentiful and St.Wolfgang also makes an excellent base for other varied excursions. Evening entertainment includes regular folklore. The lovely village of St.Gilgen is only a steam trip away.


2 nights in Villach

Located in the center of the Carinthian Lake District, Villach is a picturesque town, well-known for its cultural variety. The entire town is one big stage: street art and grand cultural events, marvelous festivals and enthusiastic artists. Take a walk through old streets and lanes and learn about the beauty and history of this charming town. Villach boasts a large number of sights of historical interest. The Heilige Kreuz church is among the most beautiful sacred Baroque-style buildings in Austria. Also, well worth a visit are: the Parkhotel and Parkcafé Villach that were built in 1910/11 and have been hosting major social events ever since.


2 nights in Klagenfurt

Klagenfurt is a lively attractive city, located the Austrian region of Carinthia (Kärnten). The Diocesan Museum with an astonishing display of religious art: sculpture, tapestries, artwork, and stained glass ranging from the 12th to the 18th century, is one of the landmarks of the city. Klagenfurt is also well worth a visit because of its many parks and the lake "Wörthersee". In addition to cultural attractions and activities available in Klagenfurt, this is a base to explore St. Veit, Hochosterwitz Castle, the Cathedral of Gurk and Magdelensberg, where you will find Austria's most extensive archaeological excavations of a Celto-roman settlement.


2 nights in Vienna

City of music, cafes, waltzes, parks, pastries, and wine - that's Vienna in a nutshell. Vienna doesn't hurry, and, as you saunter through its stately streets, marveling at its Baroque palaces, neither should you. Explore churches filled with statues of golden saints and pink-cheeked cherubs, wander through treasure-packed museums, or while away an afternoon in one of those countless meccas of mocha (the inevitable cafés), you will feel lapped in lashings of rich, delicious, whipped cream - the beloved Schlagobers that garnishes most Viennese pastries.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
The Hofburg Palace, Schonbrunn Palace, Staatsoper, Kumsthistorisches Museum, the MuseumsQuartier Complex, St. Stephan's Cathedral, the Belvedere Palace, The Ringstrasse, Parlament, The Prater and so much more!

Package Map Picture
Austria

Austria is more epitomized by green glacial valleys and snow-capped peaks - and the wooden picture postcard chalets. Nonetheless, visitors have much to explore from the stylish capital, Vienna, to the baroque splendor of Salzburg. Austria's mountain landscape is undoubtedly its biggest draw for tourists. Although a year-round destination, there is a definite seasonal split in visitors. Summer is best for exploring the countryside on the many mountain trails that snake through the Austrian Alps and the lowlands, while the ski season kicks off in December, attracting winter sports fans from all over the world.
