This segment of the 2023 Grand Tour starts in Lienz, Austria and makes our way over the high Alps, ending the week in Passau, Germany.
We start the week in a majestic river valley with high mountain ridges on either side, then change gears to climb to the highest reaches of Austria’s Alpine peaks, drop into forests plucked straight out of Grimm’s Fairly Tales, and finish in a city born of centuries of commerce and culture along two of Europe’s greatest rivers.
This segment of our journey is a study in diversity, a spectacular blend of pastoral backdrops, dense forest paths, medieval cities, grand mountain peaks, superlative music, and architecture that tells the story of western civilization developed over millennia.
At times it may feel like we’re riding inside a kaleidoscope, but there’s no rule that says you can’t taste delicacies in small portions this week and come back to your favorite places later for a gourmet experience. Your biggest challenge will be deciding which amazing place warrants your return first. Not a bad problem to have, really.
Gather in Lienz
Nomads staff will gather in Lienz on the afternoon of June 4 at the beautiful Vergeiner’s Hotel Traube. Though this evening is not an official part of the trip, guests continuing from the previous week or guests who are gathering in Lienz are welcome to join us; we’ve made arrangements just in case and, space permitting, a room may be available for you. Wander the old city, visit castles and cathedrals, or just relax and prepare for the next stage of our amazing journey. Tomorrow, we dive headlong into the heart of Austria.
