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

Great tour! Junko was well versed in the history and how it shapes the modern condition of the city. Very pleasant and patient, she also adapted to our interests. We did this tour the moment we got to town which proved very helpful. We went back to places she recommended and felt like we knew the layout of the town just from our walk with her. Highly recommend.
