A beautiful day trip from Munich

Enjoy an unforgettable day in the beautiful City of Salzburg, the Home of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the setting for the musical movie "Sound of Music". The entire old town with its medieval fortress and the baroque palaces and churches is a UNESCO world heritage site - and rightly so! Situated at the foothills of the Alps, it is an enchanting little town with lots of stories to tell and places to see. Not to forget the rich austrian culinary - both hearty or sweet - and the traditional coffee specialties. . .

If you should think that one town is not enough for a day tour, we may as well visit the spectacular lake Königssee near by, or Hitler's alpine residence, the "Eagle's Nest" in Berchtesgaden. It's all up to you!


I come pick you up at your hotel - the tour can begin

On our way over the "Autobahn" I will give you an introduction to Salzburg and the Austro-Bavarian peculiarities

After a drive through the pre-alpine landscapes of Bavaria, we will cross the border to Austria

In Salzburg, we park the car and start our walking tour right outside the parking garage in the center. The short way through the enchanting old town will lead us to Mozart House, that you may want to visit.

Before we continue our walk from there, you will have decided what else you want to see on that day:

- visit the impressive medieval fortress on the hill
- do a guided tour to the "Sound of Music" - Locations
- or leave the city, and head to either lake Königssee or the "Eagle's Nest"

In any case, we will continue the walking tour through Salzburg's old town, so you will see all the main attractions, feel the city's spirit, and have the chance to taste the local delicacies and maybe buy a nice souvenir. . .

A Recent Review of this tour

Thomas was wonderful. We had a very comfortable ride into Salzburg and he pointed out some spots from Sound of Music...and let us know a lot of the history of the area outside of what is in the tour books! He guided us thru some wonderful areas of downtown and gave us more history again! We really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend him!!!
