Overview

What to Expect
Meet your guide at Mirabellplatz in Salzburg, and then travel around the Salzkammergut’s clear waters toward Hallstatt, known to locals as ‘Pearl of the Salzkammergut.’
In Hallstatt, walk to the salt mine cable railway for a brief ride to vantage point towering 380 meters above Hallstatt. (please note the viewing platform skywalk accessible only by the cable car is optional and at own expense, but your supplier will have a special deal with you cheaper than local prices in case you opt to enjoy the views) At the top, learn how some 7,000 years of salt mining has shaped Hallstatt’s history, and admire panoramic views of the UNESCO-listed Dachstein region.
Return to town and stroll along Hallstatt Lake. Observe the colorful baroque style homes sprinkled on the mountainside as you walk to Muhlbach Waterfall. Here, delve into the history of Hallstatt, whose prosperity during the early European Iron Age attributed to the era’s name: the Hallstatt Period.
Grab lunch at a cafe (own expense), and continue to Hallstatt Bone House (Beinhaus), in the charnel house behind a Catholic church. Admission is at your own expense, but the sight of some 1,200 human skulls — many hand-painted and organized into family groups — is eerily worth the entry.
Finish with a coach ride to Gosau Lake, and enjoy the view of rising mountains of Dachstein. Your tour then finishes back at Mirabellplatz.

Half day tour

I normally prefer to make my own travel arrangements, but after realizing it's not that simple to get to Hallstatt via public transit, I opted for this tour. Very glad I did -- comfortable large coach which leaves from near the Mirabell gardens and gets...More

Absolutely Breathtaking

I’m very happy with my choice to do the Panorama tour to Hallstatt versus trying to go alone via public transit. Public transit would have taken HOURS and a train, bus, ferry to get there. The location was beautiful and our guide (Obrad) was fantastic....More
