Salzburg Super Saver: Austrian Lakes, Mountains and 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 Eagle’s 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. From afar, see the impressive Fuschl Castle, once the Prince Archbishop's holiday residence and today a luxury hotel.
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. Passing Huttenstein Castle from afar, continue along beautiful Lake Mondsee with your coach before returning to Mirabellplatz.

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!
The salt mines visit was excellent. We had a good time sliding and riding onto the cart
Salt mines and visit to Bivaria Germany was magnificent. Austrian lakes shows a beautiful part of Austria a must see
This was a great tour. Beautiful sceneries all the way, and a great experience visiting an underground salt mine.
