Salzburg tour

Salzburg tour

Saturday 5 Oct | 9.00-16.30

Salzburg – literally "Salt Fortress" – is a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its baroque architecture, beautiful alpine setting and for being the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

You can still detect the wealth that the small city enjoyed when it was ruled by its powerful archbishops. The gold, silver and salt reserves of the Salzburg mountains were at the root of the city's special position, allowing it to remain politically independent for a long time.

During your visit you can join a guided walking tour, visit the fortress Hohensalzburg or wander through palaces and gardens, baroque churches, walking in the footsteps of Mozart and passing his birthplace in today’s famous shopping street Getreidegasse. Salzburg also has a rich tradition of restaurants and coffee shops offering a variety of local dishes and sweets. You will find many attractive shops where you are sure to find some souvenirs for your friends and family.
