Day 2 – St Gilgen, cruise on Lake Wolfgangsee & St Wolfgang
After time at leisure in St Gilgen we take an included one way cruise from St Wolfgang on picturesque Lake Wolfgangsee. Time is at leisure in St Wolfgang this afternoon, or you may choose to join our optional excursion on the Schafbergbahn, the steepest cogwheel railway in Austria that famously featured in ‘The Sound of Music’. Dinner is included in our hotel this evening.
Day 3 – Hallein salt mines, Berchtesgaden & Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest
The salt mines at Hallein, one of the oldest in the world, brought riches to the archbishops and built the magnificent city of Salzburg. At Berchtesgaden this afternoon you have the option of a visit to Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest, given to Hitler as a 50th birthday present and unscathed from the bombings of the Allied Forces during World War II. Dinner is included in our hotel this evening.
Day 4 – Salzburg & Mozart Dinner Concert
Salzburg is our destination today and on arrival there is an included guided tour around the old city taking in sights such as the Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Cathedral and the Mirabell Palace and Gardens to name but a few. This afternoon we visit Mozart’s Birthplace. W.A. Mozart was born on 27th January 1756 in Hagenauer Haus at No.9 Getreidegasse in Salzburg. Mozart spent his childhood and much of his youth there. This authentically reconstructed middle class apartment is home to original certificates, letters and memorabilia that document Mozart’s life in Salzburg. We continue to Mozart Residence, where he moved to in 1773. Dedicated to the life and works of Mozart, we see the composers’ fortepiano at the museum, as well as many original documents and portraits. This evening we enjoy a Mozart Dinner Concert at St Peter Stiftskulinarium in Salzburg. The culinary concert takes place in the opulent Baroque Hall and includes a four course set dinner.
Day 5 – Kaiservilla at Bad Ischl & Hallstatt
Kaiservilla at Bad Ischl is the former summer capital of the great Austro-Hungarian monarchy and associated with the Hapsburg’s for at least 700 years. It was here on 28th July 1914 that the declaration of war on Serbia was signed. We spend the afternoon at leisure in the picturesque town of Hallstatt, ‘the pearl of Austria’, and the site of an early Iron Age culture from 800 to 400 BC and considered to be the oldest, continuously inhabited settlement in Europe. Dinner is included in our hotel this evening.
