What To Expect

Meet your guide at your central Vienna hotel and set out on the scenic journey to Salzkammergut. Keep your camera to hand as you wind through the heart of the Austrian Alps and marvel at the panoramic mountain views.

Stop at Admont Abbey, one of Austria’s oldest abbeys, where you can admire the grand Baroque architecture and take a peek in the library – the largest monastic library in the world.

Pass through the UNESCO-listed landscapes of Salzkammergut en-route to Hallstatt village, and hear about the region’s historic significance and rich mining heritage from your guide. Then, set out on a walking tour and follow your guide along the pretty lakefront, past the medieval half-timbered buildings and through the lively Market Square.

Finally, visit the handicrafts center of Gmunden, a town perched on the banks of the Traunsee River and set against a dramatic backdrop of mountains. Snap photos of the Ort Castle, which appears to be floating in the center of the lake, then learn more about the town’s craft-making heritage as you browse the many shops and workshops. Perhaps pick up some unique hand-made souvenirs to remind you of your visit.

After a full day exploring the lake district, jump back on the bus for the return journey to Vienna and end your tour in the city center.


In one and a half hour we will make a short coffee break at a quality restaurant Landzeit “Country time” on a highway, where you can relax ist comfortable rustic atmosphere and enjoy the first fascinating views over the Alps.

Have to do it!
jkukadia96, Sep 2022
Ok, so let’s get one thing straight! ignore the people who say it’s very long on the coach - of course it’s going to be you’re travelling to the alps! the trip is broken up where you can see sights on the way, you have a maximum of 3.5 hours in Hallstatt by itself so make sure you visit the salt mines!! ignore buying food there as the queue is very long for anything! You’ll have the opportunity prior to eat something on a break on the way there Tip: -take some cash with you as you may need it for Hallstatt - take waterproof shoes or extra socks if it’s going to rain otherwise you will have soggy feet as I wore trainers - take some snacks on the coach and battery pack for your phone - check the weather before hand, it does get cold so wrap up appropriately Kudos to Dasha and the team for organising - loved the information they provided and very open to questions. Make sure you’re listening too as there could be quizzes!! Coach is comfortable and toilet breaks occur every 1/1.5 hour on the way there and 2 hours on the way back. Don’t think twice about booking this trip!! Well worth it!
Incredible beauty - well worth the time to do it!
Kim_B, Sep 2022
You must go on this excursion! It was a long day but well worth it. The drive through the country and Alps was incredible. Dasha was our guide and really made the trip. She has an excellent story telling ability and has tons of information to share as well as fun facts. Hallstatt is an incredible little village on the water, very secluded and charming. There is a train to the city too but you miss out on the views of the drive. Highly recommend.
Wearisome, utterly TOURISTA, way too long trip.
Chenda_S, Sep 2022
Great guide, Dascha, very informative and helpful and kind. Good driver. But trip is waaay too long, TOTALLY TOURISTA LIKE RED ANTS, so tiresome waste of time weari
Fantastic experience
Laura_D, Jul 2022
Comfortable coach, 48 passenger bus. The Abbey was phenomenal. Hallstatt was beyond gorgeous. Just wish we had more time to explore at both locations. Tour guide was informative.
There is so much amazing...
Elena_N, Jun 2022
There is so much amazing things to see In Hallstatt is an amazing place. We would have given it a 5 star if our guide was little bit more informative and have a little bit energy to answer our questions without giving us attitude.

hallstatt was a bit...
Joy_A, Jun 2022
hallstatt was a bit crowded during my visit but went to places with a lesser crowd and it was more enjoyable. hotel pick up was a great option.
A very long day but a very beautiful destination
Hayden_R, Jun 2022
Hallstatt is one of the prettiest places in the world, so the tour company didn’t have to do much more than get us there and back. Enjoyed ferry trip on the lake and walking around the pretty town. Our Ukrainian guide, however, added several long and unnecessary stops (on commission?) and as a result it was a VERY long day (had to be at the bus before 8am and got back after 9:30pm).
More than expwcted

Views are beautiful, Tourist event wasn’t the best
Joshua_Z, Feb 2020
Pros: Hallstatt is so beautiful. Views are amazing. When you go, take the skywalk, you get an even more great view of the mountains and the water. Cons: Tour guide talks too much on the bus. You spend as much time on the bus getting to Hallstatt as you do in Hallstatt. Your actual free time is 3-4 hours. And there is far too much to see and it kills the joy when you have to kinda rush.

Would recommend
Melissa_M, Jan 2020
My only complaints were: 1. The bus did not have charging ports for phones 2. The tour guide did not stop talking. Whilst she was very knowledgeable- 3 straight hours of her talking was unbearable.

A fun day out but felt a little rushed
Michael C, Dec 2019
We enjoyed seeing Admont and Hallstatt but couldn’t help but feel a little rushed. We really needed at least another hour at Hallstatt to fully enjoy the town and unfortunately wasted an hour coming down from the sky walk! The queue was very long and it was terribly cold.
Great potential
Mark_M, Dec 2019
Fantastic opportunity to see the abbey library, but unclear visibility of the guide meant the group drifted apart before we could start the tour so a lot of time waiting which meant we missed a big chunk of time to see the xmas market. Tour guide tried her best to cover english and Russian which meant it was hard work to just enjoy the view. It felt like a constant stream of words. Hallstatt was lovely and a great journey make better by the snow covering.
Hallstatt bus trip from vienna
10happy19, Oct 2019
one word... the whole day was excellent! Saw way more than we expected, weather was super. Would have liked to stop here and there for more pictures but that would be impossible for time and space to park bus. Wonderful day!
Halstatt tour
Babita_K, Oct 2019
This tour is wrong is so many ways. The tour tells you it’s 13 hours but they keep you trapped in the bus for 9-10 hours of that and the rest is a short stop at Admont abbey which is avoidable anyway and then Halstatt. The tour guide whose name I donor remember was terrible too. She talked NON STOP for 9 hours of that bus journey telling history tales. It was like a history lesson. The tour guys must know it’s a Long journey so they try and fill it in with talk I suppose. Then they insist on playing this music non stop so even if you felt like snoozing or some peace and quiet you won’t get it!! She was rude and arrogant. None of the times she mentioned for destinations were true. The driver would take detours that made the road journey longer but she wouldn’t mention it! Then getting into Halstatt we got stuck in a traffic jam for half hour. She wouldn’t tell us until asked that they had one tunnel shut so that caused the jam! This seems like a new tour company. If you want to try around for 10 hours in a bus looking outside the window then this tour is for you else AVOID.

Alpine Panoramic Hallstatt Day Trip Tour from Vienna including Admont Abbey Visit
266sanjeevp, Aug 2019
nice trip....well organized...….good English speaking guide....nice drive......nice spot to visit though would be great if more time at Hallstatt lake.
Great trip choice
Vanessa P, Aug 2019
Loved this day trip! The Austrian Alps are beautiful. We loved driving through them. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very good. Our driver was exceptional! We were amazed at his ability to safely maneuver the bus on small roads and in small parking lots. Overall this is definitely a trip we would do again!
Auful - Not a MINI bus tour
Andreas_P, Jul 2019
I have close so many tours from Viator. This was the 1st time we made the tour by bus. I wonder why they have charge my 3 years son since he did not have a car seat therefore no safety no relaxing and no sleeping for him and had to seat all the way to my legs. His whole program became nightmare for us so we could not follow the guide. Unlimited speach in English & russian (bla bla bla) made my wife and me dizzy. Hallstat is beautiful but this tour was a disaster and i expect from you even now to refund my child's unfair charging. Thanks!
12 hr round-trip with a stop to see Altmont Abbey but not enough time in Hallstadt to do much of anything.
ROBERT_B, Jul 2019
Beautiful scenery, but the 8 hours of non-stop commentary first in English and then repeated in Russian was exhausting.! When passengers began talking among themselves, the guide got up and told everyone to be quiet. Hurried bus stops with time for just a snack and toilet. After 6 hrs without a meal or drink on a very hot, sunny day, the guide insisted on her guided walking tour through town FIRST, despite requests to hydrate and get a quick meal before. No time for a boat ride or leisurely walk around. Most restaurants are cash only. Otherwise charming and tons of tourists.
stunning Admont library
Dominika_K, Jun 2019
Unfortunately, it was very bad weather! We were unlucky and had a cold and rainy day for this trip. The visit to Hallstatt was the highlight, but because of bad weather, there were no views. The guide was not very competent. The guide was fairly curt in his commentary in English, spending much more time explaining things in Russian. (I do speak a little Russian, so I know she wasn't saying the same thing in each language). She spoke in 80% in Russian and just 20% in English The abbey in Admont was impressive, definitely worth going and see this stunning library! However please choose a different guide!
