Austria – Atergau
The Salzkammergut region of north west Austria is widely acknowledged as one of the most beautiful in this country of lovely landscapes. This district boasts 76 lakes, majestic mountains that rise some 6,500 feet and forest clad hillsides. If you have seen the film “The Sound of Music” then you have glimpsed some of the Salzkammergut’s glories already. The story was set in this area and many holiday makers enjoy identifying places shown in the musical. The picturesque church in the lakeside village of Mondsee was used for the wedding scene, for example. Wonderful scenery, delightful Salzkammergut villages and historic cities such as Salzburg await you on this tour.
