Full description
Take a walk through the Mirabell Garden and enjoy a beautiful view of the garden and the Fortress Hohensalzburg. Walk to the Salzach river and into the old town of Salzburg to the shopping street Getreidegasse. Learn about the "white gold" and how it influenced the development of Salzburg. Explore the historical city centre which lays between the river and the Mönchsberg. Take a walk along the shopping street. Find beautifully wrought iron signs, arts and craft shops between famous name brands along the narrow street. Spoil yourself with a shopping spree in Getreidegasse after the tour. Mozarts Birthplace is right in the centre of Getreidegasse. Most people stop in front of the big yellow house or choose to visit the Museum. Listen to facts about the Mozart family, their life and career, their faith and their heritage. Continue through an alleyway to one of the most fun places in Salzburg - the Farmers Market at the University square. This big, baroque church forms an impressive backdrop for the food stands. Do not hesitate to try the local cheese, sausages, fruits and pretzels with some local beer or fresh water. The Old Market square is surrounded by shops and famous coffee houses. This is a place to enjoy the rest of your day after the tour with a cup of good coffee and freshly made apple strudel. It is time to walk to the Residenzplatz. The architecture changes all of a sudden. The small streets and the shops are replaced with big spacious squares, a big Residence fountain in the centre of the square, the Old Residenz and the New Residenz, the Dom square and the Chapter square. Most buildings hold precious treasures and art of Salzburg's history, definitely worth to visit. Take a look into the Salzburg Dom and find many frescos, altars and organs. The crypt holds many graves from the former Prince-Archbishops and even modern art in a 12th-century apsis. On the way out find the baptismal where W.A.Mozart was baptized. At the end of the tour take the funicular to the top of the fortress Hohensalzburg and enjoy the view into Salzburg. From this over 900-year-old fortress, you can even view the Northern Limestone Alps and on a very clear day, you can see the Eagles Nest in the far distance. This tour will give you the insider’s view of the city with tips on how to get the most out of your vacation here. You will learn lots of historical facts along with a few funny anecdotes about Salzburg. Then it is time to enjoy the buzz of the city on your own.

The tour was absolutely great! Carolin is very knowledgeable and could convey Salzburg's history and today's charm very well. We were a group of two adults and four children, and we all enjoyed it very much. Highly recommended!
