UNESCO–listed Salzburg boasts Baroque architecture and centuries of music history, but just outside the city are Alpine peaks, shimmering lakes, and lush forests. Into the Austrian Alps and beyond, read on for our favorite day trips from Salzburg.

Bavarian Alps: Eagle's Nest & Berchtesgaden
Nestled in the heart of the Bavarian Alps—just 18 miles (30 km) from Salzburg—the town of Berchtesgaden is steeped in history. Explore the Eagle's Nest, the remains of Adolf Hitler's Alpine retreat; delve below ground at the area's 450-year-old salt mines, or stroll around town for views over the towering peak of the Watzmann. With a selection of full-day tours and super saver combo options running from Salzburg, the Bavarian Mountains offer a convenient world of adventure outside the city.
 
Austrian Alps and Lake District
Salzburg sits in the foothills of the Austrian Alps, offering easy access to the forested valleys and shimmering lakes for which the region is famous. Visit one of the world's oldest salt mines in Hallstatt, enjoy panoramic views over Lake Wolfgang and Gosau Lake, discover top attractions like Fuschl Castle and Castle Hellbrunn, or delve into the Bavarian Mountains—home to hidden villages where life ticks by at a relaxing pace.
 
The Sound of Music Filming Sites
Austria's lakeland region is synonymous with The Sound of Music, so here's a chance to tour the filming locations featured in the movie and admire the alpine scenery. Explore St. Gilgen and the beautiful Lake District (Salzkammergut), and discover top attractions such as Leopoldskron Castle—home of the famous Von Trapp family—and Nonnberg Abbey. Combine a Sound of Music tour with a trip to the historic salt mines in the Bavarian Alps to save.
