Grand Tour of Austria

Majestic monuments, splendid scenery, and three charismatic cities combine to create this enchanting Austrian tour; visiting Vienna’s palaces and Danube promenades, sailing on one of Salzburg’s serenely lovely lakes, and exploring Innsbruck’s intriguing Old Town

With a greater diversity of landscapes, history and heritage than one would expect in a small, landlocked country, Austria enthrals and entertains in equal measure. Enthralling for its breathtaking scenery of soaring mountains and verdant valleys; and for its mesmerising city streets, buzzing with contemporary life, at the foot of façades several centuries old. Entertaining with the remarkable repertoires of its most famous sons, Mozart and Strauss, operettas by Austro-Hungarian Lehár, and the classical compositions of Beethoven, who made Vienna his adoptive home. The journey begins in the capital, a place of grace and grandeur, parks, palaces, and chic shops; where we view the regal squares, historic churches, and iconic landmarks in the city and its surrounds. In Salzburg, Baroque and medieval buildings line the lanes of the UNESCO listed old town, where Mozart’s birthplace is now a museum of his childhood. Innsbruck, the capital of the Tirol, has an air of exuberance and a list of attractions which ranges from the Olympic ski-jump to the Habsburg Imperial Palace, and 995ft rise of the Hungerburg funicular. A river runs through each of the cities, the Danube, Salzach and Sill (respectively) adding a natural soundtrack.
