Take a historic walking tour of the places that made Salzburg the beautiful city it is. The two-hour sightseeing tour takes you through landmarks such as museums, concert halls, famous homes and an outstanding cathedral.
Your tour begins at your hotel, with a brief background of the area. We will stop at the Mirabell Palace where some of the scenes from The Sound of Music were filmed. The spectacular gardens are also the backdrop for many weddings and special events.
Another famous landmark is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. His former home is one of the most visited museums in the world. Learn about the man behind the music. We will also visit the birthplace and home of the late Christopher Andres Doppler. A famous mathematician and physicist, he created the Doppler Effect.
Researchers and booklovers will be in awe over the oldest library in Austria at St. Peter’s Abbey Church and Monastery. And for those who love shopping, a walk down Getreidegasse street will draw gasps and smiles. This area will please the designer-at-heart as well with close-knit buildings that display wrought iron signs and have romantic passageways and courtyards.
This tour covers a lot of ground and important sites. It can be expanded to a tour of the outskirts of the city after a well-deserved rest.
