Full description
The tour starts at Mirabell Palace, which was built by Archbishop Wolf Dietrich in 1606 and now houses the city's government. The next stop on the tour is Mozarteum (university for music, drama, and fine arts) and the Salzburg Marionette Theatre. You will then see the State Theatre and Mozart’s Residence at Makartplatz. Here you will also see the Church of the Holy Trinity, a Baroque masterpiece built by the architect Fischer von Erlach. After crossing the Salzach River, the tour takes you past the courthouse to Hellbrunn Palace, where you will make a short stop. The palace was built by the court architect Santino Solari in the early 17th century and served as a popular weekend destination for prince archbishops. On the way back to the city center you can admire Frohnburg Palace and Nonnberg Abbey, the oldest existing convent in the German-speaking world. The tour then takes you back to the old town through Siegmundstor. Here you will see the Festival Halls, the Horse Pond, and St. Blasius Church before ending the tour at Mozartplatz.

City tour very good, but Wohnhaus is only for Mozart fans

We were lucky enough to do a "private" city tour by minibus in February as a couple. Our guide was very friendly, knew a lot and was willing to answer questions. It was also nice, that during the 1.5 hour bus tour 3 stopovers. The house of Mozart, on the other hand, was not spectacular. Thus, the 28Euro are worthwhile only for Mozart fans. Another point of criticism: About Get Your Guide was the wrong organizer, wrong meeting place and the wrong time specified. Thanks to the friendly guides on site but we have found everything.

Great Intimate Tour

Wolfgang was a terrific tour guide! He made us feel more like he was a friend showing us around his city. In general, these seem to be small, intimate tours conducted in vans. These are not big tour busses full of people. We really enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it!

We had the luxury of having the tour guide for our selves.

Our guide was extremely knowledgable and personable! Learned about all the major sights of Salzburg. Lovely time!!
