Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

The drive to Salzburg alone is spectacular, passing lakes and mountains, and stopping to eat and snap photos, including at Lake Mondsee. In Salzburg, you must try Mozartkugel, a chocolate praline filled with nougat and pistachio marzipan. Make sure you get the original by F├╝rst and not an imitation!

What You Can Expect

Salzburg Day Trip from Vienna

Vienna Super Saver: City Hop-on Hop-off and Salzburg Day Trip from Vienna

Discover Salzburg with an afternoon walking tour through the old city. Your guide will show you the most important sights of the old Bishop's Seat including the Cathedral, the Festival Hall, St Peter's Abbey Church and its graveyard (the tomb of Mozart's sister Nannerl).

Among the busy shopping streets you'll see no. 9 Getreidegasse, where the famed Wolfgang Mozart was born and lived until he was 17 years old.

While passing through the gardens of Mirabell Palace you will see the statue of the Pegasus, the winged horse and perhaps here, the song 'Do-Re-Mi' from the movie Sound of Music will come to mind?

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Our tour was very nice. The tour guide was fantastic and very proud of Austria (and very liberal). The only down side was the other people on the tour could be annoying but that has nothing to do with the tour offering. It is a long ride to Salzburg and back with mandatory 45 min stops half way
