From the Bavarian city of Munich, the Austrian border is just a 1.5 hours' drive away through striking German countryside, making nearby Salzburg an easy day trip destination. See below for the best ways to explore this Baroque city from Munich.

Salzburg City Tours
A guided tour is a great way to discover all that Salzburg has to offer, especially when visiting from Germany. See Hellbrunn Castle, Mirabell Palace, and the Mozart Residence (Mozart Wohnhaus), the former home of classical music king Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Traveling with a tour guide and a group will allow you to explore the city’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town without having to worry about transport from Munich.

Combo Tours
Choosing a combo tour will take you from Munich to Salzburg, while also allotting time to explore the best of the Bavarian countryside. Head out to absorb the beautiful Lower Bavarian Alps and see filming sites used in the 1965 classic The Sound of Music, then visit Salzburg’s churches and squares. You can then continue through the Lake District toward the postcard-perfect town of St Wolfgang, where Mozart was born, all before getting transported back to Munich.

Things to Know
  • Comfortable walking shoes are a must.
  • Because Salzburg and the surrounding countryside are a couple hours’ journey from Munich, most day trip tours last upwards of eight hours.
  • Be sure to bring a camera to capture the gorgeous mountain scenery.
  • An extended two-day tour can be a great way to see all the sights at a relaxed pace.
