Red Bull is an energy drink sold by Red Bull GmbH, an Austrian company created in 1987. It is the best-selling energy drink in the world, with 7.9 billion cans sold in a year (as of 2020).
2. Sankt Gilgen Enjoy wonderful viewpoint for 10 Minutes and down-town 30 Minutes.for you to explore the city on your own.
The parish church is dedicated to Saint Aegidius (Latin), in English Saint Giles, which is reflected in the name of the town, Sankt Gilgen. St. Gilgen is a well-known travel destination. Boats from St. Gilgen sail around the Wolfgangsee, providing transport and views of the surrounding mountains. The hermitage of the original St. Gilgen may be seen, behind a chapel, in the Falkenstein cliffs west of St. Wolfgang and east of Fürberg. In 2005 St. Gilgen was promoted as the "Mozart Village" by the Wolfgangsee Tourist Board. Although Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart never visited St. Gilgen (as he had intended to), his grandfather worked in the town, his mother was born in St. Gilgen, and his sister Nannerl moved there after her marriage. The village now boasts a first-class international school, the St. Gilgen International School.
3. Sankt Wolfgang in Salzkammergut 50 Minutes for you to explore the city on your own.
Saint Wolfgang erected the first church at the shore of the Wolfgangsee after he withdrew to the nearby Mondsee Abbey in 976. According to legend he threw an axe down the mountain to find the site and even persuaded the Devil to contribute to the building by promising him the soul of the first living being ever to enter the church. However, Satan was disappointed as the first creature over the doorstep was a wolf. After Wolfgang's canonization in 1052, the church became a major pilgrimage site, as it was first mentioned in an 1183 deed by Pope Lucius III. In 1481 it was furnished with the famous Pacher polyptych. There had been several places for lodging around the church since medieval times, while the Weißes Rössl hotel was not built until 1878.
During World War II, a sub camp of the Dachau concentration camp was located here.
4. Bad Ischl 60 Minutes for you to explore the city on your own.
Bad Ischl was a settlement area since the Hallstatt culture, first mentioned in a 1262 deed as Iselen. In 1419 Archduke Albert V of Austria established the local seat of the Salt Chamber (Salzkammer) at Wildenstein Castle, and Ischl was granted the privileges of a market town in 1466 by Emperor Frederick III. A first salt mine was opened in 1563, a salt evaporation pond (Saline) followed in 1571.
When in the early 19th century brine came into use for medical purposes, Ischl soon became a fashionable spa resort with notable guests like Prince Klemens Wenzel von Metternich and Archduke Franz Karl of Austria. The Hotel Post opened in 1828 was the first one in the whole Salzkammergut area. In 1849 Franz Karl's son, Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria chose the town for his summer residence.
In 1854, the Emperor's mother, Archduchess Sophie, gave him the Kaiservilla (Imperial Villa) as a wedding present. The villa became the imperial family's summer residence; Franz Joseph described it as "Heaven on Earth". He also granted a nearby mansion to mistress Katharina Schratt, that could be easily reached via a hidden footpath. In the Kaiservilla on 28 July 1914 Franz Joseph signed the declaration of war against the Kingdom of Serbia, signalling the start of World War I. He left Bad Ischl on the following day and never returned. The villa is still owned by the Habsburg-Lorraine family, although the grounds and parts of the residence are now open to the public.
In the aftermath of the defeat of Germany in World War II, Bad Ischl was the location of a displaced persons (DP) camp for survivors of the Holocaust and Nazi concentration camps in Eastern Europe. The resident displaced persons were primarily Jews from Poland and other neighbouring countries. They were provided with lodging, food, medical care and administrative assistance until they were able to make other, more permanent arrangements. Many left for the United States, Israel and Canada. The Bad Ischl DP camp remained active from 1945 through 1952.
5. Hallstatt 240 Minutes for you to explore the city on your own. Hallstatt Salt Mine and Skywalk. Accessible by cable car or a three-minute journey aboard the funicular railway, it's well worth visiting for the wonderful views from the Skywalk, a viewing platform extending over a sheer drop with Hallstatt 350 meters directly below. More spectacular views are from historic Rudolf's Tower (Rudolfsturm), an old fortification built to defend the mines against invaders, now a restaurant and observation tower. The star attraction, however, is the 7,000-year-old salt mine itself. The Hallstätter See, Hallstatt's Old Town and Market Square. The village clusters around its charming Marktplatz, surrounded by traditional houses, and a highlight is the elegant Holy Trinity statue. In the centre of town is the 19th-century Evangelical Church of Hallstatt, its tall, slender spire a lakeside landmark. Catholic Parish Church and Ossuary Chapel, The World Heritage Museum.
After visit Hallstatt, we will take a relaxed scenic return drive to Salzburg, where your tour concludes with a drop off at your accommodation or chosen central location.
