A walk through the old streets and public squares of this well preserved historic town.
Salzburg has several baroque palaces, a baroque style cathedral, five public squares with fountains or statues, as well as the largest and best preserved medieval fortress in Central Europe.
This is the city where the great musician Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born, and the city where the Sound Of Music movie was shot.
A visit to the medieval fortress will show an additional aspect of Salzburg, allowing a panoramic view of the Alps and a bird eye view of the Old Town. The fortress is the largest well-preserved medieval castle in Central Europe. A perfect setting for your childhood dreams and fairy tales.
The walking tour takes you to the Mirabell garden (well known to those familiar with The Sound Of Music and the "do-re-mi" song), then across the pedestrian bridge to the main street with its old shop signs and Mozart's Birthplace.
5 public squares with an Italian character and baroque monuments will be on our way, among which the cathedral particularly stands out; it can be visited (entrance fee 5 Euros per person) if religious services are not taking place (provided there are no Covid-19 related restrictions).
You will also take the funicular (cable-car) to visit the medieval fortress.
NOTE: If you would like to have a taxi on some sections of this predominantly pedestrian tour, please send me a message so I can customize a tour for you.
