Salzburg - A Day in Austria

Salzburg
4 out of 5 stars (3 reviews)

Description

A city so special they named it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Salzburg is famed for its old world glamour, made all the more striking by the majestic backdrop of snow-capped Alps.
It is the home town of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Would you like to visit his place of birth, his residence, the streets he walked and the cafes he drank in?

Salzburg is also one of the most popular set-jetting or "movie tourism" destinations in the world for one simple reason - The Sound of Music. You'll see the sites you'll 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. One of the finest preserved medieval "old towns" in Europe, criss-crossed with romantic winding shopping streets and venerable market places and adorned with outstanding architectural monuments of the later baroque era. Piazzas and fountains, the stunning Domkirche Cathedral, palaces, pleasure gardens, churches, monasteries and catacombs, confectionaries and patisseries, the oldest restaurant in the continent.  And towering above it all, the breathtaking 900 year old fortress Festung Hohensalzburg: the magnificent edifice that dominates the city's skyline - and is itself framed by the spectacular encirclement of mountains stretching into the horizon.

Itinerary

The guide will bring 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.

" A must-do day trip!! "
5 out of 5 stars
This was an incredible experience! The tour guide was so friendly, informative, and helpful. I learned so much about Salzburg's history and saw some incredible views. Also saw the houses Mozart lived in! I could've spent multiple days here so having a few hours was a great taste of this amazing city. Definitely go on this day trip, and hope that you have Susan as a tour guide!!!
" A beautiful city "
4 out of 5 stars
Ian's explanation of the history around Salzburg was excellent, giving an overview of causes and effects I hadn't hear before. The orientation tour gave us a great overview to make the best use of our free time. The walking pace set was a bit on the fast side for me, just be warned if you're a little older! But overall a great experience .
