‘City trips’

Salzburg (roughly 1.5 hours)
Dominated by an imposing castle, this chic Baroque city on the Salzach is a UNESCO world heritage site - and for good reason. Some highlights in Salzburg:


Salzbergwelten Hallein
This area was built on around 2,500 years ago by the Celts. The mine railway will let you discover the mysterious world of miners, as well as an underground salt lake. The salt mine also features a reconstruction of a Celtic village to enchant young and old alike.

Erlebnisburg Hohenwerfen
The Hohenwerfen mountain in Bad Dürnberg bei Hallein is a joy for the whole family. From Medieval spectacles to falconry shows and fire play, a world from ages past is brought to life on this 900-year old mountain high above the Salzachtal Valley.

Innsbruck (roughly 2 hours)
Featuring a charming old town, the capital of Tyrol boasts plenty to see and do - especially the famous Goldene Dachl. Idyllically located on the Inn and surrounded by mountains, the Tyrollean state capital is always worth a visit to enjoy a stroll, some shopping and an aimless wander. On the way to Innsbruck, why not visit:

Kufstein Fortress
Prepare to be impressed by one of the most imposing Tyrollean buildings from the Middle Ages. Set on a 100m high cliff directly on the Inn, you can enjoy wonderful views over the Inntal Valley. There’s plenty to see at the fortress: the Kuftstein Musum, the largest open-air organ in the world, a medicinal herb garden and a former state prison. There are always concerts and festivals at the fortress, as well as a charming Christmas market each winter.
