On a 2, 5-3 hr walking tour I will show you Mozart Square, Residence square with the Residence building and the Salzburg Dom. Follow the good smell and discover an old bakery next to a beautiful cemetery of the St. Peter's District.

A Recent Review of this tour

Michaela was great. We were only in Salzburg for the day and she gave us the perfect historical tour. She was extremely informative and gave us some great information regarding the sight and scenes of Salzburg. I would recommend her to anyone who visits Salzburg. We would not have learned a fraction of what we learned if not for our tour with Michaela. She gets an A+ rating!
