What You Can Expect

Panoramic Salzburg City Tour with Coffee and Cake

Schloss Leopoldskron

Meet your guide and begin your Salzburg sightseeing tour at Mirabell Square, where you'll pass Mirabell Palace and its magnificent Baroque gardens, which you may recognize if you’re a fan of the film version of The Sound of Music. Built in 1606 by Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau for his mistress, the palace today is the seat of the city government.

Next, discover some sites related to Salzburg’s most famous resident, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. First up is the Mozarteum, one of the best music schools in the world and one which attracts thousands of students each year. Then head to the house where Mozart was born in 1756 and where he lived with his family.

Continue your tour into Salzburg’s Baroque Old Town, with its beautiful Salzburg Cathedral and the festival quarter, where two festival halls become home to thousands of opera fans during the Salzburg Festival every summer.

More film sites from The Sound of Music are up next: pass by the Rock Riding School where Captain von Trapp sang ‘Edelweiss’ while the family began their escape; Nonnberg Abbey, where Maria was planning to become a nun; and Schloss Leopoldskron, a palace on whose grounds many of the outdoor scenes of the Von Trapp family home were filmed.

Finally, your tour ends at Restaurant M32, where you’ll sit down to a hot cup of coffee and piece of cake on its panoramic terrace. While you eat, enjoy splendid views over Salzburg, admiring Fortress Hohensalzburg and soaking up the atmosphere of this fairytale-like city.

Such a beautiful place to visit will definitely go again

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2012

Gives a good overview of beautiful Salzburg and its environs, good commentary and comfortable minibus. The optional afternoon tea is worth it for the view alone.
