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.
