Full description

Visit the hometown of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on a full-day tour from Munich. Travel by train and in the imperial city, visit his place of birth (optional), 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.” An expert guide will take you on a train ride from Munich to Austria. You will be provided with a map and get a 1.5-hour orientation tour through the major sites. 

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, and confectionaries and patisseries. You will also go to the oldest restaurant on the continent. You will then have 3 hours to explore the city for yourself, before meeting up for the return journey.

During your free time, you can visit 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.

Despite the rainy day, we still got to see and enjoy the beauty of Salzburg. We were given some free time to continue the trip on our own, but since this was our first time in Salzburg and we had a toddler with us, it was a better option to stick on the tour with our very informative guide, Holger. He really looked after his group making sure that no one was missed and the meetup point was understood. I wanted to really see the venues where Sound of Music was shot, in this trip we got to see two - the Mirabell Garden and St. Peter's cemetery. Ill definitely be back to Salzburg, a day is not enough.

Our guide Mark is great. He is so friendly and greets everyone personally. Explained everything so thorough and clear, form the facilities on the train, the tour, the history and the restaurants. It was a very pleasant day trip. Mark is one of the best guided that we are lucky to have.

This morning we took a taxi to the meeting point, met the guide and left for Salzburg with a small group of 13 people. Except for a little rain now and then, everything went well. First we got to know Salzburg for over an hour under the guidance of the guide and 3 hours of free time. Enough time to walk, take lots of pictures, sit inside at a Cafe and have an early dinner. Old town is chic with winding streets, Mozart's birthplace, souvenir shops, the clothes shops are closed on Sundays.
