Salzburg, the capital of classical music and setting of ‘The Sound of Music’, is an integral stop on any Austrian itinerary. Travel to the sophisticated city and the Alpine lakes of St. Gilgen and Mondsee with ease on this 12-hour trip from Vienna. See the Salzburg Cathedral, St. Peter’s Abbey, and the Mozart Residence, before absorbing the striking Alpine landscapes of St. Gilgen and Mondsee. Pickup from central Vienna hotels is included on this small-group tour, limited to 15 people.
At your centrally located Vienna hotel, board an air-conditioned minivan destined for the rolling hills of Salzburg. During the 3-hour drive, your guide points out particularly scenic spots and provides an overview of Salzburg — the birthplace of Mozart and Austria’s capital of classical music.
Salzburg’s Mirabell Palace and Gardens, and its grand cathedral make for a visual treat: admire the architectural highlights on a guided tour and see, too, the Mozart Residence, the birthplace of the legendary composer, and St. Peter’s Abbey (Stift Sankt Peter).
Then, enjoy free time in Salzburg and opt to visit the filming locations of ‘The Sound of Music’ by taking the funicular to Hohensalzburg Moutnain. After reconvening with your guide, you’ll proceed to the Salzkammergut lake region: absorb the natural splendor of St. Wolfgang Lake in St. Gilgen and then head to the village of Mondsee to discover the legends that surround Mondsee Lake.
Your tour concludes with drop-off in central Vienna, in front of the Hotel Astoria.
A beautiful scenic drive from Vienna to Salzburg. Everyone in my group really loved Salzburg. Real pity we were only there for the day. Would have loved to stay a bit longer. Would love to experience the town with a lot less tourist to share it with. Our guide had to describe the tour in 3 different languages which is quite amazing to me. Very talented and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend this tour.
Amazing tour with amazing views. Both of the guides knowledgeable.
We had a v good day amazing scenic drive, lovely tour guide Ileana. Wish had more time for lunch...and a bit earlier.

Did not get much out of this. Probably because we were so cold.
It was a long long day. Would be quicker to go by train. The lakes is literally a 10min photo stop. You see lake from motorway so not worth the extra time and detour. Our guide was ok but the tour was given in Russian ans English! Making it very lengthy and lots if standing. No time for proper lunch
I wish the tour could have been only in English, would have made the day much better. Overall good day, but much to improve upon.
