Great organized boat tour on the Salzach with a mega dedicated crew. Highly recommended!
View original review in German

This 40-minute cruise will let you experience the best of what Salzburg has to offer, from the unique perspective of the scenic Salzburg River. Glide in the comfort of a modern boat with up to 1200 HP. Built especially for the river, it has a draught of only 38 cm. The large windows featured in the boat’s unique design will enable a stunning panoramic view of the city sights.

Take in the impressive natural landscape and scenery surrounding the town, along with the exclusive residential area in the city’s southern part. The Haggen and Teggen mountains will present a stunning backdrop as you cruise along the gentle river.
