Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This is such a beautiful, relaxing escape from Salzburg. I would highly recommend taking a boat ride on Lake Hallstatt -- the views are sublime!
Since this half-day tour is private, your itinerary can be customized more closely to your interests, if you choose. Feel free to mention to your guide where you’d like to focus your time.

Your excursion will begin with pickup from your Salzburg hotel. Hop aboard your private coach and begin your journey to the UNESCO-listed village of Hallstatt. Along the way, soak up views of the famed Alpine peak of the Dachstein, towering 9,826 feet (2,995 meters) from the ground.

Arrive in Hallstatt, an area dating back to prehistoric times and renowned for its long history of salt production. Here, coordinate your itinerary with your guide and then venture out independently for 30 minutes if you choose. Check out the Mühlbach Waterfall and sail across the lake on a scenic boat ride (own expense). You can also opt to travel up the mountain by train to see the world's oldest salt mine (admission at own expense), taking in views of the town stretched out below. Or stroll along Lake Hallstatt and sightsee from the crisp blue water.

Stop to examine the village’s unique Beinhaus (Bone House), a collection of 1,200 decorated human skulls. Learn how corpses were exhumed and the skulls were painted to preserve the memory of the deceased when the village ran out of burial grounds in the 18th century.

After five hours exploring Austria's scenic Lake District, your private tour will conclude with drop-off back at your Salzburg hotel.

You cannot go to Austria and not go to Hallstatt. Taking a private tour was awesome. Beautiful place.

We had a great trip to Hallstatt. Our tour guide picked us up right on time and the vehicle had plenty of space for four travelers. Our tour guide Carlos was excellent. He provided facts and stories all the way from Salzburg to Hallstatt. He answered all of our questions and was very clear and insightful. We highly recommend this tour, this company, and a quick visit to Hallstatt!!

Amazing tour and well worth the investment. Wolfgang was the best and Hallstatt is a one in a lifetime visit.

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 !

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.
