Explore Salzburg City's Sightseeing-Spots with your friendly local guide


Join me on a tour through Salzburg, this world-cultural-heritage city, from Mirabell Palace, to the "Old Town", The Dome, the Getreidegasse and more, . . . and experience the unique history & culture of music, architecture, and religious/political background, all within it's rich natural surroundings.

Besides discovering it's churches, musicians (W. A. Mozart, . . ), world of theater (world-renowned Salzburg-festival), we will also take a funicular up the fortress-mountain and hike around the famous "Hohensalzburg" fortress to enjoy wonderful panorama views and learn of it's history back into the middle-ages (Please note that we usually don't enter the fortress with it's long staircase, to avoid exhaustion. If you want to enter, just let me know in time).

I'm glad to spend a nice & memorable time with you and maybe recommend further activities for your stay in Salzburg (museums, shopping, restaurants. . )!

A Recent Review of this tour

Junko was excellent, very knowledgable and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and she spent much longer with us than we expected. Highly recommend.
