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.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Festung Hohensalzburg, Residenzplatz, Mirabell Palace, St Peter`s Abbey, Salzburg Cathedral Mozart`s Birthplace, Old Town, St. Sebastian`s Church and Cemetery, Schloss Mirabell and Gardens, and so much more!



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.


Recommended Stay: At least 2 nights
Must See`s:
Strolling the Village, Wolfgangsee Boat Ride, Schafberg and Schafberg Railway, St Gilgen, Ochsenkreuz `ox cross`, 12-Hour Cable Car, Hiking at Postalm, Stroble, Swimming at Wolfgangsee, and so much more!



2 nights in Villach

Villach was once known as the Roman town, Santicum, with roots spanning back as far as the Neolithic period. It has since been an important town in the state of Carinthia and is the seventh largest city in Austria. Located in Southern Austria, Villach is surrounded by beautiful countryside, gleaming crystal clear lakes, and stunning Alpine mountain ranges; all of this makes it an excellent town to visit with a variety of outdoor activities connected with the natural world.

Recommended Stay: At least 2 nights
Must See`s:
Villacher Alpenstrasse, Landskron Castle, Naturpark Dobratsch, Lake Faak, Hauptplatz Villach (main square), Lake Silbersee, Aichwaldsee, Villacher Fahrzeugmuseum, Kärnten Therme Water Park, Stadtpfarrtum Villach, Lake Ossiach, City Museum Villach, Maibachl Hot Spring, Climing the Kanzianiberg, and so much more!

Klagenfurt is the capital of the state of Carinthia in Austria with a myriad of attractions. The city offers an excellent location to use as a base to explore the southern region of Austria. It is a quiet city with absolutely breathtaking landscape and natural surroundings. Visitors will find a number of cultural attractions and outdoor adventure along with it being a great location 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

Package Map Picture
Austria

<b>Austria</b> is 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.
