What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Salzburg City Highlights Tour

Admire the stunning Mirabell Gardens on your private tour!

Your 2-hour tour of Salzburg will begin with pickup at your hotel, at the departure time selected. Hop aboard your comfortable coach and relax with a more flexible sightseeing experience with your private guide.

Pass Mirabell Palace, and spot the gardens where Maria and the children famously sang ‘Do-Re-Mi’ in The Sound of Music. Continue to Salzburg’s historic Old Town to see St Peter’s Abbey, the Benedictine monastery dating back to the 696, and the Baroque Salzburg Cathedral, the site of Mozart’s baptism.

Afterward, pass the stately structures of Schloss Leopoldskron, Frohnburg Palace and Hellbrunn Palace, all featured in The Sound of Music. You’ll also see the historic Nonnberg Abbey, where Maria von Trapp, whose life The Sound of Music was based on, was a postulant. Top off your trip with a glimpse at Mozart’s House, the former abode of the city’s most famous resident.

Since this tour is private, you are welcome to customize your itinerary around your interests. Your sightseeing excursion will conclude with drop-off back at your hotel.

The tour could have been better primarily due to the rain. It poured through most of the tour. Despite the weather Thomas provided an interesting van tour of Salzburg. He provided a balance of Sound of Music and Salzburg history.
