On arrival, you will be met by your local guide and taken on a 2 hour walking tour of the old city starting at the beautiful Mirabell Gardens and Palace, immortalized in the iconic film ‘The Sound of Music’. As you cross the river Salzach, spectacular panoramic view of the city with its splendid hilltop fortress await you in Getreidegasse, Salzburg’s oldest shopping lane. With its historic wrought iron store signs, you will be brought back in time to 1756, as you visit the house in which Mozart was born. You’ll get to admire the old market square, the Cathedral, and St Peter’s Abbey with its picturesque graveyard, surrounded by the rocks of the castle hill. After the tour, you will have ample free time for lunch and to explore the city at your own leisure. Chocolate lovers can visit the Mirabell chocolate factory, famous for producing hand-made Mozartkugeln, a delicious mix of dark chocolate, praline and marzipan. A great gift for friends and relatives. The return journey will take you through Austria’s breathtaking salzkammergut (the Lake District), where the opening scene to ‘The Sound of Music’ was filmed.
