Salzburg & Königssee

Mozart's city & beautiful Bavaria
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, centred walking
  • contrast of musical city with Alpine lake and mountains
  • rewarding routes through breathtaking scenery
  • high-quality hotels and famed Bavarian hospitality
  • sail across the fjord-like Königssee in a hidden corner of Germany

Fewer than thirty kilometres separate Salzburg and Königssee as the crow flies, yet they couldn’t be more different. The former is one of Austria’s foremost cities – and one of the finest Baroque cities north of the Alps – while the latter is the fjord-like, emerald-green lake at the heart of Berchtesgadener Land, one of Germany’s hidden corners, which is surrounded on three sides by the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.
For the best views in Salzburg, take a walk to the top of the Kapuzinerberg and take a seat in the beautiful shaded gardens of the Franziskischlössl with a cooling drink...
     
Salzburg’s allure lies not only in its rich cultural heritage, but also in its ornate buildings, elegant squares and elaborate fountains created by craftsmen from Venice and beyond, who lent it a distinctly Italian feel, while Königssee – Germany's deepest and purest lake – enchants with its serenity and its backdrop of imposing peaks. By combining the two, this break promises plenty of variety and an appealing mix of culture, history and scenic walks, with the chance to visit the Eagle's Nest, which sits on a rocky promontory above Königssee, commanding some of the most impressive views in Germany.
