Austria: Salzburg

Walking in Mozart's Lake District

  • Relaxed walking through 'chocolate box' villages, with snow-capped peaks as a backdrop
  • Crystal-clear lakes, babbling streams, tranquil shores, secluded bays
  • Luxury **** hotels throughout; swimming opportunities every day
  • Picturesque waterfront villages, postcard-pretty castles and cobbled streets crammed with attractive frescoed houses
  • Varied rest day choices: Mozart's fairytale city of Salzburg, lake cruises, water sports and mountain rail rides

The Salzkammergut area (Austria's Lake District) is one of the most impressive regions in the heart of the country. Boasting 76 lakes and with a beautiful mountain backdrop, it's a perfect place to relax and let the calming atmosphere envelop you.

This 10-night self-guided walking holiday offers a selection of activities, where you'll enjoy a mix of spectacular scenic views, gentle shoreline routes, wooded forest trails and 'chocolate' box villages. There are also some great spots to stop off for a swim or dip your toes after a day's walking. The walks are relaxed, following mainly well-marked routes, and you can extend them on most days.

You'll spend three nights in the wonderful riverside spa town of Bad Ischl - a favourite summer holiday retreat of Emperor Franz Joseph. Although it's almost 100 years since the emperor was last there, his presence is still felt in the region, and you can explore the Kaiservilla, his former holiday home. Other highlights include walking via the UNESCO village of Halstatt for picture-postcard views, the imperial spa, salt mines, ice cave, the Katrin cable car and the Siriuskogl viewing platform.

Stop off at the town of St Wolfgang, renowned for its beautiful C15 church (you can sit in the arched windows and enjoy your lunch al fresco from here), and hop on the antique cog railway up to the summit of the Schafberg for unrivalled Alpine views. Visit St Wolfgang's Pfarrkirche with its outstanding Baroque altar created by Michael Pacher and, at St Gilgen, enjoy a decadent coffee and Apfelstrudel. Not to mention a trip to Salzburg itself.

You stay in unrivalled **** luxury, family-run hotels that are calm and relaxing places to spend time, with 'feel good' wellness centres, plus high levels of quality and attention to detail. In Bad Ischl, your hotel has an enviable riverside location, while the Gasthof zur Post in St Gilgen, once a stage coach stop, dates back over 600 years.

Hair dryer icon

The 4 star Markus Sittikus is a beautifully presented hotel, based in an 18C building with a mustard facade located in a quiet side street not far from the Mirabell palace, just a 15 minute walk from the old city.

Inside the hotel the decor is attractive and individual, with bold colours like mustard yellow and red tartan in the comfortable bar area, and some colourful murals painted on the walls throughout the building. Public rooms have period furniture and the upbeat interior, combined with the personal attention you receive from the friendly staff, make a stay here particularly memorable.

The hotel has 39 rooms though it feels smaller, with television (CNN/BBC), direct dial phones and hairdryers. Each one is individually decorated with attractive colour combinations and solid wooden furniture, in keeping with the age and status of the building.

It is also one of the few hotels in Salzburg to have a garden to relax in, if you are looking for some respite after doing the sights.

Everyone who goes on a Headwater holiday will be emailed a link to our post-holiday questionnaire where they can give us an honest assessment of all aspects of their holiday - everything from how quickly we answer the phone to how clean the hotels were - plus an overall rating and comments about their holiday.

Any feedback collected is posted to our website, so that people can make an informed decision based on past experiences before heading off on holiday. We don’t edit the reviews, the only thing we do is proofread them and alter any typos, where necessary, to ensure they are easy to read for everyone. All reviews will be published (except in certain extreme circumstances), and a member of the Headwater team will respond to any constructive criticisms/comments under the reviews, at their discretion. So, for the real tales, twists and turns of our holidays, look no further than the reviews from our previous travellers.

Mrs Dolan, 30/09/2018

Beautiful Scenery, well planned walks, interesting food and a chance to get off the beaten track. You always feel supported but also independent.

Mr Perry, 21/09/2018

Very enjoyable holiday, not having to worry about anything. Hotels and locations absolutely beautiful. The reps Colin & Jill were world class. We particularly liked their enthusiasm and details for the walks. Wish I could do it all again tomorrow!!!!!

Mr Homer, 02/07/2018

Beautiful walking through exceptional scenery. Hotels comfortable, friendly offering great food

Mrs Acton, 25/09/2017

Excellent reps Colin and Jill always available kept us informed and in contact by email daily.

Mrs Cottis, 12/08/2017

Excellent holiday, we were blessed with fantastic weather which made the scenery even more stunning! Good support from Colin & Jill. Walk instructions clear, hotels and their locations of a high standard. Summit of Schober (optional) not for the faint hearted - deserve a Gold star for completing it!! Highly recommend this holiday.

Mrs Webster, 31/07/2017

we absolutely had a brilliant time, the most beautiful clean organised holiday. Fabulous walking, fabulous views, lovely swimming places. Super reps to help us who went above and beyond. The hotels were fantastic and for me the food spot on. Kids found the half board fixed menu a little tough, so some more options may have been helpful

Mr Lambert, 17/07/2017

It was a very enjoyable holiday all round. We were particularly impressed with our reps Colin and Jill who hit exactly the right note, were proactive and kept in regular touch with us. This really helped us make the most of our holiday.

Mrs Lees, 09/07/2017

once the holiday was sorted out properly, everything ran smoothly. All the hotels were well located and the reps very helpful with suggestions for local activities. We had lovely weather and the scenery was impressive.

Mr Bridge, 15/07/2016

Austria is a lovely country and the people are friendly. We had a great time and enjoyed the walks. My advice to you and my only difficulty was because we choose Stansted it meant getting up at 3.am. This was ok but the problem was that when we got to our first hotel we were too tired to take in all the information that Colin and Jill gave us. Its not a complaint of them but if we could of had that information on day two after a good nights sleep it would of been better.

Mr Ross, 05/07/2016

Excellent hotels and locations,varied walking and many opportunities for sightseeing and other activities,even when the weather was wet. We particularly appreciated the locations of the hotels which allowed us to walk into the town?village in the evening. Logging tracks had obliterated some of the signs or trails in some forested sections. We mentioned this to our tour managers who were going to check. Generally the walking notes were excellent, without the need of the map. Such was the excellence of tour managers Jill and Colin, they just happened to drive by and pick us up as we abandoned a walk due to rain and were waiting for a bus!

Mr Soutar, 28/05/2016

Such a beautiful area and we enjoyed the walks - even in mixed weather conditions!

All the hotels were excellent - the staff friendly and welcoming and all meals and wines were delicious. There was plently to keep us occupied on our rest days.

Altogether, a perfect holiday!

Mr Schafer, 16/11/2015

We took our trip in late August. The trip was very well constructed and we thoroughly enjoyed the mix of hiking and exploring days as it gave us a chance to enjoy the beauty and culture of the areas we were visiting. This was our first self-guided Headwater trip (4th Headwater trip overall). The local reps Colin and Jill were very helpful, providing updated route notes and suggestions for things to see and do during our hiking and off days. The route notes were accurate and easy to follow. The hotels were all very nice and with the exception of the Hotel Bergrose, were all centrally located. ( The Bergrose was in a beautiful, quiet setting 20 mins out side of town.) It was very warm during our trip (~32 degrees) so we had to sleep with the windows open. The central location of the hotels made for rather noisy nights and we ended up sleeping with earplugs. The hotels and food were otherwise excellent across the board. This is a wonderful holiday.

Mr Severn, 24/08/2015

Excellent - we had a fab holiday!

Mr Stephens, 23/08/2015

It is a varied holiday of mountains and lakes with plenty of opportunities for wild swimming and the potential for great photographs from high places. Some days are longer and / or more arduous than the 1 boot. Note that if travelling through Frankfurt airport, you may be subject to security and / or passport checks despite only being 'in transit'. Also, be aware that the gates between connections can be some distance apart, so the 1hr 20mins between flights that we had was just sufficient to catch the onward flight. Very good holiday although temperatures were higher than expected.

Mr North, 07/08/2015

Loved this holiday although the walking was quite tough. Because the weather on the first day of walking to another hotel wasn't good, the slippery, narrow path deserved a rating of more than 1+Boot. Maybe an alternative walk at a lower level for such conditions could be offered. We diverted off the path onto a logging track for safety reasons but this made the walk longer so still tougher than expected. For us most of the walks definitely needed the + as part of the rating.
