Salt mines
Start your day leaving Mirabellplatz with your comfortable coach to visit the 450-year-old Salt mines. The site is located below Obersalzberg, a mountainside complex home to the Eagles Nest, famous for being Hitler's retreat. Walk in miners footsteps while wearing traditional mining outfits as you descend into the grottos. Your guide will tell you fascinating tales and interesting facts about this underground world as you explore. Then, float on the salt lake in a raft with your guide, descending to the mine grotto, before enjoying a train trip around the lake.

Your tour continues to the picturesque Bavarian village of Berchtesgaden. Wander through the charming streets independently before relaxing on the drive back to Salzburg. Enjoy an hour of free time in Mirabellplatz to have lunch at one of the nearby restaurants (own expense) before your next tour.

Austrian Lakes and Mountains

In the afternoon travel by comfortable coach to beautiful Austrian lakes and through mountain landscapes. Experience the breathtaking scenery of one of Austria's most beautiful regions, the Lake District, full of historical landmarks.

In the town of St Wolfgang, stop for a visit of the famous winged Gothic altar church. Then, relax at the White Horse Inn Hotel for refreshments (own expense) before enjoying a 25-minute boat ride on Lake Wolfgang to the village of St Gilgen, where Mozart's mother was born.

    As others have said, these are 2 different trips. The morning was spent exploring the salt mines on a train, a slide and a raft - great fun! The afternoon trip to lake Wolfgang was beautiful. Quaint little villages and stunning scenery.

    This really is 2 separate tours, even with separate guides. Both were great, just seemed like a lot of wasted time driving back and forth to Salzburg. Also, spent a lot of time dropping other tours off, since one bus can be used for multiple tour groups.

    Great.

    The tour was split into 2 parts: salt mine and then lake districts.
    The view to the salt mine and dropping by the bavarian town was beautiful though the salt mine was a little too commercialize for my liking. However the lake district tour to st gilgen and st wolfgang was great! Pretty towns!
