This 6-night holiday gives a lovely short introduction to the Austrian lakes district, Salzkammergut, a land intrinsically linked with 'The Sound of Music' and Mozart. This is picture-postcard Austria: shimmering blue lakes, deep green meadows, alpine villages and traditional dress.
This shorter version of the holiday still packs the punches, beginning on the shores of Lake Mondsee, where the local church was the location of the famous wedding in The Sound of Music. Then it's on to Bad Ischl, perhaps the jewel in the crown of all the towns you visit en route. There is so much to do and see here, you might want to have extra nights. From Bad Ischl you cycle to the beautiful lakeside town of Strobl (from where you can visit fairytale Salzburg) before arriving back for your final night on the shore of Lake Mondsee.
Our centrally-located hotels are extremely friendly and provide a wonderful contrast throughout your holiday. The Hotel Goldenes Schiff in Bad Ischl has a spa, with sauna and steam room, while the Hotel Bergrose has more of a traditional feel, with wooden interior and Gothic script on the exterior.This cycling tour is rated 1 cycle + which indicates that some small sections of the route will be slightly more challenging than the overall grading.
