Travel in your limousine via the “Westautobahn” from Vienna to the “Salzkammergut”. The area is famous for its lakes and you'll pass the “Traunsee” lake. Take a break in Bad Ischl, where you can see Kaiser Franz Joseph's summer residence. Continue on to the romantic “Wolfgangsee” lake and then drive along the “Fuschlsee” lake to Salzburg. A stroll through this city will take you past its most important landmarks such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's birthplace, the Hohensalzburg Fortress (“Festung Hohensalzburg”) as well as the well known Festival House (“Festspielhaus Salzburg”) and the Salzburg Cathedral (“Salzburger Dom”). No trip to this metropole, Austria's fourth largest city, is complete without a visit to the Hellbrunn Castle (“Lustschloss Hellbrunn”) with its magnificent fountains. Perhaps you'd like to do a little shopping in the picturesque “Getreidegasse”, Salzburg's most famous shopping avenue, or sample its culinary delights. Your driver will be waiting with a “Mozartkugel”, a typical Austrian delicacy made of marzipan and chocolate, to sweeten your ride back to Vienna.
Experience the flair of Vienna in a driver-guided city tour along the magnificent Ring Boulevard, passing such attractions as the world famous Vienna Opera House, the Hofburg, Vienna's imperial palace, The Natural History and The Fine Arts Museums, The Imperial Court Theater (“Das Burgtheater"), the university and The Votive Church ("Die Votivkirche"), just to name a few of the landmarks along your way. Your driver will then take you down the narrow, medieval streets of historic Vienna, culminating in a visit to St. Stephen's Cathedral. Continue your tour, either with your vehicle or on foot, from there to Charles Square with its imposing Baroque-style cathedral, St. Charles's Church, the largest of its kind north of the Alps. From there proceed on to The Belvedere Palace, the summer residence built by Prince Eugen of Savoy. Your chauffeured vehicle will be waiting to take you along the Danube River, past The Naschmarkt, Vienna's most popular market. Your travel route, flanked by Art Nouveau buildings, will bring you to a national landmark of imperial splendor, The Schoenbrunn Palace.
Let us show you the “other Vienna”. Your driver-guide will take you to visit some of the former residences of musicians such as Johann Strauss, Franz Schubert and Ludwig van Beethoven. You'll see the the Giant Vienna Ferris Wheel, an enduring feature of the city's skyline since 1897, which fascinated Orson Wells in the movie "The Third Man". Cross the Imperial Bridge ("Die Reichsbruecke") into modern Vienna and you'll drive by the unique United Nations Complex, the Millennium Tower and the Danube Tower, Vienna's tallest building, with its revolving restaurant and panoramic views, 160 meters above ground. Your tour will continue along the Danube River until you reach the Klosterneuburg Monastery ("Stift Klosterneuburg"), located at Vienna's gates, not only famous for the Verduner Altar.
Ride up winding roads to Kahlenburg, where you'll enjoy breathtaking views of Vienna. Your drive back to the capital will take you through Vienna's beautiful vineyards and into Grinzing, the romantic vineyard village. Take a break from the sights for a "Glaserl", or small glass, of wine and experience for yourself the meaning of the term „Vienna Gemuetlichkeit“.
