Overview

Experience two top-selling tours at a discounted price with this Salzburg Super Saver. Begin your day traveling through the Bavarian Mountains and touring the 450-year-old salt mines. Then visit some of the memorable locations where ‘The Sound of Music’ was filmed, while soaking up the stunning scenery of the Salzkammergut. Your guide also provides a historical backdrop on the architectural landmarks of Salzburg.
  • Picturesque drive through the Bavarian mountains
  • Exhilirating slide down to the magical mine grottos
  • Fascinating tales of the salt mines' history
  • 'The Sound of Music' convent at Nonnberg Abbey
  • Visit the famous 'Sound of Music' gazebo
  • Experience magnificent lake and mountain scenery of the Salzkammergut
Your day tour departs from central Salzburg, where you meet up with your guide and venture by coach to the Alpenstrasse, traveling along the King's Lake River.

After a scenic drive, arrive at the salt mines and step into authentic miners' gear. As you enter, learn the history and local lore buried deep within this 450-year-old underground world. Travel down to the grottos on the same slides used by the miners and enjoy a thrilling descent! Explore the hidden terrain with a raft sail across the famous salt lake before making your way back up to the surface.

After your adventure in the salt mines, take off on your 'Sound of Music' tour. Led by an expert guide, re-live your favorite scenes with stops at Mondsee to see the wedding church, as well as the Mirabell Gardens, the famous place where the children sang ‘Do-Re-Mi’ with Maria.

As you drive from each location, sing along to the celebrated songs from the film, including 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen,' 'Edelweiss' and the cherished classic 'The Sound of Music'. You also have a chance to learn more about Salzburg’s rich history and architectural gems while you sightsee, and enjoy views of the stunning lake district.

Salt Mines were brilliant. Sound of Music tour great fun. Johannes was a great guide/driver for our visit to Salt Mines. Bridget and her driver were fabulous on Sound of Music tour. A great way to see the beauty of Salzburg. We would definitely recommend these two tours to anyone visiting in the future

Actually two separate tours booked together, with time for lunch in between. We went to the mines in the morning, beautiful views all the way to there. The mine was fun, but of course, it's an amusement park ride, not an adventure tour. No photos allowed but they sell you the photos they take, 10 euros for two pictures. The afternoon tour was the Sound of Music tour. Our guide was funny, very well prepared, without him, I wouldn't like the tour. It is a bus tour, you go to Mondsee, and the guide points out the sites were the movie was filmed, you stop on the lake, the to see the gazebo (no visit to Hellbrunn palace), and finally Mondsee and you either take a little sightseeing bus train shaped (at your own expenses), or you walk (ten minutes) to the church (free entrance), and then you have time to walk around, and back to Mirabell Gardens were the tour started. Both guides were very good, the program itself could be better.

The salt mines tour was very good and educational. Antonio our guide and driver was also excellent a host and made our trip super fun. The scenic drive to the mines was so beautiful and we got to see the countryside covered in the first snow of winter. Truly magical.

The salt mine tour is very interesting and informative. The tour guide very knowledgeable and I enjoyed the tour.. especially the slides in the mines! However, I must admit I purchased this tour mainly for the SOM tour. Wolfgang was my tour guide for the Sound of Music tour and I do not think it gets better than him! We saw all the sites including the Gazebo.. Wolfgang was extremely accommodating at taking pictures since I was on a solo trip. He threw on SOM songs throughout the tour as pertaining to the sites we were seeing. I could not have had a better birthday. I highly recommend this tour if you are a SOM fan.
