Boat trip in salzburg-explore salzburg from the river

Experience Salzburg´s Old Town and surroundings from a new perspective!

From the end of March to the beginning of November, the Panorama boat “Amadeus Salzburg” offers you a sightseeing tour which is in a class of its own! Marvel at the city of Mozart from the river.

In earlier times, salt (salz in Ger­man) was trans­ported by boat along the river to the city, thereby giving the River Salzach its name. The last ship to cruise on the river was closed down in 1891, due to shallow water and weak engines. More than a cen­tury later, and since 2002, it is now pos­si­ble to cruise along the river. The “Amadeus Salzburg” is a mod­ern ship with seats for up to 80 pas­sen­gers (including the open deck) and has a draught of only 38 cm. The unique design with large win­dows allow for the mag­nif­i­cent panoramic view. The engines pro­duce 1100 Hp and allows to the ship to reach speeds of 50 kmh.

The Salzach river­boat offers you a range of tours to choose from. Whether it’s a roman­tic evening cruise, or a cruise and visit to the Palace of Hell­brunn and its facilities, this trip along the river offers fantastic views of the city of Salzburg and its many sights. You can also book a special package comprising a boat trip fol­lowed by a visit to the Salzburg Fortress for a unique con­cert high above the city, fea­tur­ing works of Mozart and other com­posers. Another attrac­tion is the com­bi­na­tion a of boat-trip to Hell­brunn with its trick water foun­tains and the return jour­ney with our his­toric 1964 Eng­lish double-decker bus. This com­bi­na­tion (Tour 3) is unique to Salzburg. In the evening, the jetty of the “Amadeus Salzburg” then transforms into a well-attended Cocktailbar with a special flair.
