You will start your journey at Zillertal from where you will take a tour to Lake Achensee by the nostalgic train and a steam boat to enjoy the eventful panoramic journey straight away. Later on, you will visit Alpbach which occupies a beautiful location on a sunny plateau at approx. 1.000m above sea level. Thanks to its homogenous architectural style and lovely floral decorations Alpbach was voted "Austria´s most beautiful village".

Your next highlight will await you at the impressive waterfall at Krimml which are the fifth highest waterfalls in the world. A hiking trail makes it possible to get very close to this breathtaking nature spectacle, affording sensational views. Enjoy the refreshing mizzle and the impressive power of the water amidst the gorgeous scenery of the Hohe Tauern National Park.

Zell am See is always a special holiday experience, especially the everlasting ice at the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. The legendary Salzkammergut lake district was already a popular retreat during the emperor's time: its sparkling lakes are sprinkled among mountains and forests, offering the perfect escape. In St. Wolfgang the unique Gothic winged altar, sculpted by Michael Pacher, and the "Weisses Rössl" restaurant, a popular song theme, are among the leading attractions.
