Bad Ischl & the Austrian Lake District

Sat 16 - Sat 23 July 2022: An 8 Day Escorted Coach Holiday to Bad Ischl & the Austrian Lake District with Johnsons Coaches

Book Now

Saturday 16th to Saturday 23rd July 2022


Music, mountains and some of the most staggeringly beautiful alpine scenery define the Salzkammergut area, which is known as Austria’s Lake District. This is the land of lakes, a haven for gentle walks or exploring inland to the mountain foothills. Perched at the water’s edge, small villages dot the landscape where traditional farmhouses and wooden chalets lie in green hills and pastures set against the backdrop of snow-capped mountains, blue skies and clear lakes. Our base for this tour is the charming town of Bad Ischl – this charming spa town was the holiday destination of the Emperor Franz Josef for 63 years. Also known for its hot salty spa baths, famous for their wellness qualities, the town has been a favourite with visitors since Victorian times.
