What It Is
From the homeland of the Oktoberfest to the birthplace of Mozart and the much-loved Sound Of Music', this tour will take you away from the former Nazi buildings and monumental squares of Munich to the beautiful Austrian city of Salzburg.
And, this day trip is not all about Julie Andrews and her gaggle of children, although you will see many of the locations used to film the musical, including the same park where Maria " taught us all how to sing Doe-ray-me".
During a 1.5-hour orientation tour of the city your knowledgeable guide will show you through the heart of Salzburg, pausing at points of interests, like the Domkirke Cathedral and the home and local haunts frequented by the great Mozart, whilst recommending places to see, eat, and visit while in the city.
You'll have 3 hours to explore Salzburg independently, stroll through the Mirabella Gardens, admire the 900-year old Festung Hohensalzburg which sits high above the city, and stop to eat in the oldest restaurant on the continent.
Salzburg is also known for its mediaeval old town, one of the best preserved in Europe, so take some time to explore its winding streets.
You will travel by train from Munich with a local guide and a group of up to 25 people. The journey is 2 hours each way through gorgeous mountain scenery.
