Package Itinerary

Castles and Peaks of Salzburg

The trip offers an exciting visit of some of the Alpine castles, glaciers and unforgettable mountain views.

Day 1 
Arrival to the airport and transfer to your hotel where you will spend your next 5 days.

Day 2
Salzburg – a cosy beautiful city on the banks of the river Salzach, built in the baroque style, the world capital of classical music, hometown of great Mozart and Karajan. Surrounded by the lakes and mountains of the picturesque Salzkammergut region, Salzburg is certainly one of the most outstanding cities in the world. Your city guide will introduce you to the city‘s highlights before you visit Hohensalzburg Fortress, the largest fortress in Austria. 

Day 3
Travel to Werfen and the spectacular Hohenwerfen – Fortress that brings you directly to middle ages era. This mighty castle has towered over the 155-metre high rock pillar above the Salzachtal valley for more than 900 years. The castle along with its walls that hide its captivate history, the museum and the castle‘s dark corners, all encourage visitors to feel its mighty spirit from within. 

Day 4 
Today we recommend a trip to Kaprun, where a bus will bring you up to the "High alpine water reservoir" Mooserboden. The dam is 107m high and 500m long – enjoy the astonishing view at the huge reservoirs at 2.000m altitude.  As an alternative to the Mooserboden you can take the cable car up to the highest point in the Salzburg region, the "Kitzsteinhorn". In the afternoon, visit Zell am See for a stroll along the promenade or take a short boat ride on the beautiful lake.

Day 5
Travel to the highest mountain of Austria, the Großglockner. At 3,798m the Grossglockner is not only the highest mountain in Austria, it also counts among the highest peaks in the Alps. From the Franz Josephs Höhe you have a marvellous view of the glacier. Your journey along this famous 48 kilometre alpine road leads you into the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park and to the Pasterze Glacier. 

Day 6
Transfer from your hotel to the airport. Departure.
