As the birthplace of Mozart and the setting of the iconic film The Sound of Music, Salzburg has become one of Austria's most popular destinations. Discover its magic on this full-day tour which will also take you through the stunning Lake Region.
Full-Day Trip to Salzburg
After being picked up from your hotel, you'll leave Vienna behind, heading to Salzburg, a city located on Austria's border with Germany.
Along the route, you'll pass the stunning scenery of the famous Salzkammergut region. Admire the soaring green mountains and peaceful lakes: you'll see Fuschlsee and Wolfgangsee. It's not hard to see why this was Emperor Franz Joseph's favourite summer holiday location!
On arrival in Salzburg, you'll have free time to enjoy something to eat and to visit the impressive Hohensalzburg Fortress, if you'd like (tickets not included).
You'll then begin your guided tour of the city's most important monuments including the 17th century Baroque Cathedral, Festival Square, St Peter's Abbey, one of the oldest monasteries in the German-speaking area, and its ancient cemetery; the Salzburg Residenz, and of course Mozart's birthplace.
Exploring the different locations from The Sound of Music, you'll finally reach the Baroque 'Pferdeschwemme' horse well, and the Mirabell Palace. From here, you'll have the best views over the Hohensalzburg Fortress, one of the biggest and best-preserved Medieval fortresses in Europe.
After an incredible day filled with beautiful sights and fascinating stories, you'll head back to Vienna, where you'll be dropped off at the Vienna State Opera around 8:15 pm.
The day trip includes pick up at the main hotels in Vienna. If your hotel doesn't appear on the list when booking, you must select the last option (Wiener Staaptsoper/State Opera) and you'll have to make your own way to the meeting point.
