Meet your private guide by Salzburg’s Café Glockenspiel, and head out to explore the narrow lanes that zigzag through the Old Town. Walk past wealthy burgher houses fronted with Baroque facades, and admire Salzburg’s commercial center, which has retained its medieval charm.
After passing through the bustling Getreidegasse shopping district, you’ll work your way to Mozart’s Birthplace. Hear about Mozart’s childhood and his family, and learn about other Classical composers from Salzburg such as Michael Haydn.
Stroll onward to St. Peter’s Abbey, one of the oldest Benedictine abbeys in Austria, and learn a little more of the city’s history from your guide. Over the centuries, Salzburg has been known for its medieval salt trade, advances in medicine, and its links to the Sound of Music — the city provided the filming locations for the timeless wartime tale.
After three hours, your tour ends in the center of the Old Town.
