Arrival + City Tour
Arrival in Salzburg and transfer from airport/train station to your hotel. After hotel check-in, you will meet your guide for a sightseeing tour in the home town of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Visit Festung Hohensalzburg, the largest, fully-preserved fortress in central Europe which was built in 1077 by archbishop Gebhard; Mozart’s residence, where the composer lived for 26 years and where he composed many of his famous works between 1773 and 1780; Salzburg Cathedral, probably the most famous building of the city; as well as Hellbrunn palace with its trick fountains. This architectural masterpiece just south of the city is surrounded by a spacious park and the Salzburg zoo. The evening is at your free disposal.
After breakfast, we recommend a boat cruise on the river Salzach to get some different views of this picturesque town! Afterwards, transfer to the airport or train station. You will return home with numerous memories of the Mozart town.
