Tour Details

Experience the storybook forest highlands of Austria on a half-day journey to southern part of the Vienna Woods. On this tour you'll enjoy the ride in a comfortable coach while the landscape sails by like a series of beautiful woodland portraits on the way to Mayerling, Abbey Heiligenkreuz and the Seegrotte Hinterbruhl.

This tour through the northeastern foothills of the Alps will pass through the former Roman spa town of Baden and the romantic Helen's Valley. The first stop is the memorial chapel built on the site of the former imperial hunting lodge of Mayerling. In 1889 the tragedy of Crown Prince Rudolf and his mistress Baroness Vetsera took place at the lodge. Learn more about these fateful events during a tour through the memorial chapel and the adjoining showroom.

Then, visit the Abbey Heiligenkreuz which was founded in 1133 and is still an active monastery. See the medieval cloister and the burial place of former Babenberger rulers. This dynasty was the oldest in Austria and shaped its history throughout many centuries.

Take a boat trip to Europe's biggest underground lake, Seegrotte Hinterbruhl. On the way, pass the Holdrichsmuhle, once an old mill where the composer Franz Schubert created his music. The last stop on the bus tour is the Seegrotte Hinterbruhl, where Europe's biggest underground lake awaits you. Travel by boat through the mystically lighted galleries where the green shimmering water and the rough stone walls add to the very special atmosphere.

You won't want to miss this very unusual tour ending at the underground lake. Don't forget to book early because this Austrian tour is sure to fill up quickly!
