It was an amazing day trip from Vienna to Salzburg. The guide Karl made the trip even better. Started from a very central location in front of the State Opera House. The journey and the views were spectacular. The bus was double storeyed and very comfortable. The views of locations where the iconic movie The Sound of Music was shot were spectacular. Once we reached Salzburg Karl showed us around on the walking tour and explained everything in great details. Wish we had another hour in Salzburg as a lot of time went away finding a good place to eat. The stops on the way had very expensive food and drinks. All in all a very good trip.

Sit back and unwind on a comfortable bus on a relaxing drive to Salzburg. As you peer out the window, you will come across endless landscapes of greenery of the beautiful countryside of Salzkammergut. The majestic range of mountains and clear lakes are truly a treat for the eyes. Any fans of “The Sound of Music” will recognize the landscape from the opening scenes of the movie.

Walking tour of Salzburg

Once you reach Salzburg, your tour guide will be ready to take you on a guided walking tour of its most popular tourist sights. The first stop is the stunning Mirabell Palace where you might recognize a few famous locations from the movie The Sound of Music. In the garden of the palace you will spot the place where Maria and the children sang “Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So.” Marvel at the fountains and the steps as you reimagine scenes from the movie. Next, you will notice the horse pond where Baron Trapp sang the iconic Edelweiß song as he bid farewell to Maria.

One of the major highlights of the city tour of Salzburg is Getreidegasse. This is the street that houses the birthplace of the legend Mozart. With iconic designs from the 18th century, the street is a delightful stop on your tour.

Other popular attractions that you will visit include the University Church, the Salzburg Cathedral, the Festival Hall, and St. Peter’s Abbey.

Towards the evening, you will have some time to explore the city on your own where you can eat, shop, or simply admire the city’s sights and sounds. The estimated time of arrival back in Vienna is around 8pm.
