Austrian Lakes & Mountains

At Great Rail Journeys we visit this outstanding area of Austrian lakes and mountains on a selection of tours.

Austrian Lakes and Mountains

Situated in about the centre of Austria, the lofty peaks of the Salzkammergut region tower over the glassy waters of the beautiful lake district - creating an exceptional landscape of unique beauty. At Great Rail Journeys we visit this outstanding area of Austrian lakes and mountains on a selection of tours.

To gain both a marvellous overview and a great insight into the lakes and mountains of Austria, on our holidays we explore the region on a number of varied excursions. For example, on our "Austrian Lake District" tour we stay in the quiet, authentic fishing community of Traunkirchen, set on the western edge of Lake Traunsee and overlooked by the Traunstein Mountain.

We visit some of the impossibly pretty villages dotted around these lakes, including St. Wolfgang and Hallstatt, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Other excursions take in some of the film locations for "The Sound of Music", and the timeless city of Salzburg - known as Mozart's birthplace and filled with a plethora of attractions. And of course, we discover some of the lakes by taking leisurely cruises on them.

We also include some exciting railway trips. Some of these scenic lines pass along the lake shores, connecting the region's charming towns on modern routes. Others, such as the Schafbergbahn Cog Railway, are preserved tourist lines. This steam-hauled journey offers incredible views over the Austrian lakes and mountains as it climbs to the summit of Schafberg at 3,904 feet.

Naturally we also include wonderful rail travel to and from Austria. Our holidays to the area all begin at London St Pancras International, and travel on Europe's efficient and convenient high-speed rail network - so you arrive at your destination feeling refreshed and ready to enjoy your break.

Our marvellous rail holidays to the Austrian lakes and mountains provide a wonderful balance of excursions and free time to relax and explore the lakeside attractions. They also include most meals and the services of a professional Tour Manager throughout - representing great value for money. With a range of departures to the unforgettable Austrian lakes and mountains, you are sure to find the holiday that's ideal for you.

“The holiday was very well organised. The hotels were extremely good and rail travel and coach travel was very comfortable.
Grand Alpine Explorer
Mr M Ward
“The hotels were of variable standard. We felt the hotel in Traunkirchen was not of 4 star standard with regard to facilities, room, and the hotel was not particularly well situated. The dinners served in St Moritz were of poor quality and appeared to have been prepared on an extremely tight budget. However the hotel in Innsbruck was excellent and we would have preferred more time there than in Traunkirchen. The total porterage worked excellently which is why we give the holiday 4 and not 3.
