St. Wolfgang

On the edge of Lake Wolfgang, the town of St. Wolfgang is a traditional Austrian town bursting with character. As well shops, horse and carriage rides, Lake Steamer tours and then there is the famous steam railway the Schafbergbahn. See www.wolfgangsee.at for what’s on.

Bad Ischl

The small town of Bad Ischl 25 kms from Obertraun was the former summer capital of the great Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and has been associated with the Habsburg imperial dynasty for at least 700 years. The Imperial Villa in Ischl, the Emperor’s summer residence, was described by Franz Josef I as “heaven on earth” for himself and his family. Where the Emperor went – the court followed. Now, Bad Ischl is full of grand villas, parks and promenades’, cafes and concert halls.
The Villa is now open to the public in the summer months and is well worth a visit.

Today there are concerts almost daily as well as the Lehár Music Festival which takes place in the summer.

Bad Ischl is a spa town and has a magnificent array of treatments available in the Wellness Centre. If you just fancy a dip in the waters – the indoor pools are open daily.

For lots more information what’s on in Bad Ischl see www.badischl.com


The heart of the Upper Austrian capital has a pulsating beat. The idyllic streets and the stylish marketplace provide a delightful counterpoint to the contemporary art and virtual reality of the popular ARS Electronica centre. Sightseeing and shopping can be done in the inner city centre followed by a gastronomic stroll through the many streets of local cuisine. Traditional cakes and pastries are on hand at the numerous coffee shops throughout the city. www.linz.at

A tour of the old quarter allows visitors to make a range of historic discoveries. The oldest church in Austria and the church of St Martin are amongst many to be found here. The museum of the future (ARS Electronica) is great to visit where the latest technology is on hand much of which can be experienced. The Postlingberg family mountain railway, Europe’s’ steepest, offers a charming touch of nostalgia. Once at the top, the view of the city is stunning. Linz also has its own zoological and botanical gardens which, along with a busy calendar of events makes this a great city to discover. A very full day out !


The city of Salzburg is known as the world’s stage. It is here where history comes alive and where music and nostalgia come together. The birthplace of Mozart really comes alive and all around Salzburg memorabilia can be seen. History is around every corner. There are too many attractions for one day and so much to be discovered. Many tour operators offer city excursions and if your visit is short it is well worth considering this option. Horse and carriage rides are available from university square and the city’s picturesque side streets provide many a pavement cafe with cakes and pastries on offer. www.salzburg.at

The “Sound of Music Show” (with dinner) www.soundofmusicshow.com at the Sternbrau theatre provides an excellent evening of enjoyable entertainment. There is far too much to mention here but a visit to Salzburg is an absolute ‘must’. From museums to mountain tours and from palaces to parks – it’s all here.
