Discovering Salzburg

Experience Salzburg by taking a stroll. The best way to discover the historical core of the city of Mozart is via a walking tour with a state-registered tour guide. The classic walking tour through the Old Town lasts about 2 hours and leads you to the most important historical sites. As well as the cathedral, St. Peter’s monastery, the archiepiscopal residence and Salzburg Fortress, the birth place of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the Festival district await you. During the walking tour, you also encounter loveable buildings such as the oldest coffee house in Salzburg or the oldest pharmacy in the town and your tour guide will not deprive you of the little anecdotes either which make the history of the town and its people even more interesting.

Price for the guide: 130 Euros / maximum of 30 people per tour guide

For example – to Salzkammergut – in the land of light operas
The picturesque and charming lake scenery will fascinate you as you are driven past Fuschlsee lake, visit the Mozart village of St. Gilgen – the home of Mozart’s mother – and get to know the famous church by Wolfgangsee lake with its gothic winged altar from Michael Pacher in St. Wolfgang. Also possible is a short detour to the “Im Weissen Rössl” restaurant, or a boat cruise on Wolfgangsee lake. The journey home to Salzburg takes you past Mondsee.

For example – to Hallein/ Dürrnberg
This excursion leads you into the south of Salzburg state and includes a visit to the salt mines in Hallein by the Dürrnberg and the Celtic village by the Dürrnberg. Immerse yourself in the underground world of the miners and discover all kinds of interesting things about the extraction of salt. Whether it’s a voyage by the mystical salt lake or going down slides which were once used by the miners, the oldest exhibition mine in the world will be a real experience for you. A subsequent visit to the Celtic museum in Hallein will bring you closer to the lives of the Celts.

For example – Salzkammergut
Voyage beyond the Salzachtal valley to Golling, on towards Abtenau in the Lammertal valley and trip on the Postalm Road - with the highest pasture region in Europe – towards Strobal by Wolfgangsee lake, short detour to St. Wolfgang and then on with the journey to Bad Ischl – to the summer residence of Emperor Franz Joseph; there you have the possibility of visiting the imperial villa or walking through the spa gardens; journey home via Mondsee


Our personal advice: A tour through the Old Town in combination with a boat cruise on the Salzach with the panoramic boat “Amadeus Salzburg” to the trick fountains and journey back with the original London double-decker bus from 1964.

At all times, we are happy to put together a tour according to your individual demands!
