Know More about this tour

After pickup from your hotel, travel for approximately 1 hour by Mercedes E-Class or minivan, passing the ski resort towns of Russbach and Abtenau on your way to Gosau. Marvel at phenomenal views of the Dachstein, a famous Alpine peak that rises to an elevation of 9,826 feet (2,995 meters) before continuing on to Hallstatt in upper Austria. Since your tour is private, feel free to tell your guide where you’d like to spend more time and ask as many questions as you like.

Your guide will explain the immense cultural significance of Hallstatt, an old salt mining town that has been linked to prehistoric Celtic peoples. Because of the ancient area's rich stores of natural salt, it is one of the first places humans are known to have settled.

In Hallstatt, consult with your guide to decide on your sightseeing itinerary and explore on your own for half an hour if you wish. You can travel by mountain train up to the world's oldest salt mine (entry at own expense) and take in picture-postcard views of the town below. Take a walk around Lake Hallstatt and observe how the houses above you cling to the mountainside. Admire the Mühlbach Waterfall cascading down the mountain and take a scenic boat ride out on the lake (own expense).

Check out the incredible Beinhaus (Bone House) behind the Catholic church (own expense), a fascinating collection of 1,200 painted human skulls. When Hallstatt ran out of burial grounds in the 1700s, corpses were exhumed and the skulls were decorated to preserve the memory of the deceased.

Relax and capture lovely photos on the drive back to Salzburg. Your 5-hour customizable private tour of Hallstatt and the gorgeous Austrian countryside concludes with drop-off at your Salzburg hotel.

  • nice, quaint, picturesque village.. too bad it was too foggy to go up the skywalk. there are also nice shops within the area, and some good restaurants too.. loved dining and sipping coffee while enjoying the view.

  • Hallstatt is unbelievably beautiful. You will leave there with postcard perfect pictures. We felt a little rushed however. Wish we would have had more time to spend there.

  • He was more interested in listening to classical music than explaining about the sights. Also, he was very time conscious kept us from seeing all that was promised.

  • This was such a wonderful tour ! Our tour guide, Sonya, was so interesting and gave us great information about Hallstatt and the surrounding areas. She was very knowledgeable and fun ! Do not miss seeing Hallstatt ! It's amazing and the drive to and from Salzburg is just as enjoyable. We saw Lake Fuschlsee and Lake Wolfgangsee. They were also so beautiful. We had time to walk around the town of Hallstatt and it was perfect !

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Visit to Slatmine was included and mentioned in the tour voucher whereas on tour it was not covered. When we told the guide he refused to take us to the Salt Mine.
