Visit one of the jewels in the crown of Europe on a day trip to Salzburg from Munich. Famed for its old world glamour, made more striking by the majestic backdrop of snow-capped Alps, explore Mozart’s home town with an expert guide.
What to Expect
Visit the home town of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on a full-day tour from Munich. Traveling by train, on arrival in the imperial city you will visit his place of birth, his residence, the streets he walked, and the cafés he drank in.
Salzburg is also one of the most popular set-jetting destinations in the world for one simple reason; “The Sound of Music.” Visit sites you will remember from the silver screen, such as the beautiful Mirabelle Gardens where Julie Andrews and the children were filmed singing “Do-Re-Mi.”
And yet so much more. Explore one of the finest preserved medieval old towns in Europe, crisscrossed with romantic winding shopping streets, and venerable market places adorned with outstanding architectural monuments of the later baroque era. See piazzas and fountains, the stunning Domkirche Cathedral, pleasure gardens, palaces, and churches, monasteries and catacombs, confectionaries and patisseries. You will also go to the oldest restaurant in the continent.
And towering above it all is the breathtaking 900-year-old fortress Festung Hohensalzburg, the magnificent edifice that dominates the city's skyline, itself framed by the spectacular encirclement of mountains stretching into the horizon.
An expert guide will take you on a 2-hour train ride from Munich to Austria and back again and put their knowledge of the city and what is best to see and do at your service. You will be provided with a map and get a 1.5-hour orientation tour through the major sites. You will then have 3 hours to explore the city for yourself, before meeting up for the return journey.
