Explore the Austrian lake region, visit the locations from "The Sound of Music" and experience the atmosphere of Mozart's birth town.
What to Expect
Whether or not you’re a fan of The Sound of Music’, take advantage of your stay in Vienna and visit Salzburg. With a friendly English-speaking driver, you’ll depart from your hotel in Vienna in a private limousine or minivan.
The scenery on the way to Salzburg is breathtaking: You pass by the Vienna Woods, see the peaks of the Alps from afar, and finally reach the Austrian lake district. Take pictures of the region’s gorgeous mountain lakes and villages, and visit the locations from The Sound of Music.
In Salzburg you will be joined by a local expert guide who will take you on an extensive walking tour where you’ll hear intriguing stories about the history and the city’s famous
inhabitants. Along the way you will see the most important sights, including Mozart's birthplace, the colorful gardens of the Mirabell Palace (the "DoReMi“ song was filmed here), the cemetery of the Abbey of St. Peter (the Von Trapp family hid there), the festival area, the Archbishop’s Palace and the cathedral.
After the walking tour you can spend a couple of hours in Salzburg for lunch, to do some shopping explore the city further on your
own. Visit the Mozart museum or take a ride in the funicular up to the impressive fortress of Hohensalzburg. In the late afternoon your driver
will take you to Vienna and back to your hotel.
Enjoy the superior service and the personal atmosphere of this private tour. Your knowledgeable guide is ready to respond to (almost) your every request and requirement, and there will be lots of photo opportunities.
