Wonderful, up-close Salzburg experience with guide Michaela Muhr..

Loved the old-city walking tour on the way to get our bikes, including stops at Confiserie Josef Holzermayr's to taste the famed Mozartkugler (chocolate and marzipan filled candy), the Mirabelle Gardens, and many historical places including the locations of many Sound of Music scenes throughout the surrounding Salzburg countryside. A perfect way to see the city!
