What You Can Expect
From here, cross the River Salzach and wander into Salzburg's Baroque old town. See where the city's world-famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born and learn about his life and work in Austria.
Then, stroll down Getreidegasse, Salzburg's elegant shopping street, and admire the picturesque streets and hidden alleyways of the old city. Stop at Salzburg Dome Cathedral and visit St Peter's Monastery, one of the oldest monasteries in Austria that’s home to one of the oldest restaurants in the world, dating back to the year 803!
Erich led us on an interesting, informative, and entertaining tour of Salzburg. We saw both Mozart's birth house and the place where he lived later, the Mirabelle gardens, the cemetary, an 800 year old bakery, a 1200 year old restaurant (!), various old buildings, famous streets, alleyways, plazas, etc. Although it rained pretty much the whole tour, it was a very enjoyable experience. Once the tour was over, I retraced our steps to get a more in-depth look at each of the places he'd taken us. Since Salzburg is such a small city, this was easy to do.
This tour is a great overview of a charming city.
Our extraordinary tour-guide turned a rainy day into an utterly enchanting and informative tour of beautiful Salzburg. He was gracious, charming, entertaining, and extremely knowledgable. We could have continued on for hours despite being drenched. Outstanding.
