Full description

Visit the hometown of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on a full-day tour from Munich. Travel by train and in the imperial city, visit his place of birth (optional), his residence, the streets he walked, and the cafés he drank in.

Salzburg is also one of the most popular set-jetting destinations in the world for one simple reason, “The Sound of Music.” Visit sites you will remember from the silver screen such as the beautiful Mirabelle Gardens where Julie Andrews and the children were filmed singing “Do-Re-Mi.” An expert guide will take you on a train ride from Munich to Austria. You will be provided with a map and get a 1.5-hour orientation tour through the major sites. 

Explore one of the finest preserved medieval old towns in Europe, crisscrossed with romantic winding shopping streets and venerable market places adorned with outstanding architectural monuments of the later baroque era.

See piazzas and fountains, the stunning Domkirche Cathedral, pleasure gardens, palaces, and churches, monasteries and catacombs, and confectionaries and patisseries. You will also go to the oldest restaurant on the continent. You will then have 3 hours to explore the city for yourself, before meeting up for the return journey.

During your free time, you can visit the breathtaking 900-year-old fortress Festung Hohensalzburg, the magnificent edifice that dominates the city's skyline, itself framed by the spectacular encirclement of mountains stretching into the horizon.

Our lovely guide Susanne explained all the details about the town. Tour starts with a marvellous train trip which takes around 2’hours. Then walking tour starts, and it was well planned. The only thing about the tour is: the time is not enough to visit all places. We decided to stay longer by seperating from the group. But the rest was amazing, Salzburg is a place where you suddenly fall in love.

excellent, friendly and informative guide (Elizabeth) who structured the tour and highlighted things to explore perfectly before our free time. it was nice to just turn up at the office and be guided on the trains and buses without having to think about it, and on the train journey the time passed much more quickly because she filled it with pre tour info on Munich and salzberg, which added to the experience in comfort before then exploring the city.

We had a lovely day trip to Salzburg on the train. Elisabeth was a great guide who shared the history of both Munich and Salzburg with us on the train, taking around to some important sights and then leaving us to tour for about 3 hours alone, after giving us good tips of what to do. The highlight for us was Mozart's Birthplace Museum and getting the original Mozart Kugeln, and of course the Christmas Markets. We loved Elisabeth's Mozart Duckie so much that we bought our own! We should have spent the night there though, it's just so beautiful and there was more we would have liked to have done. That was the only drawback!
