Itinerary

To join the Salzburg City Walking Tour you should make your way to the meeting point at the bus terminal across from the Mirabell Palace next to St. Andrä Church. An English and German-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour of the most famous sights of Salzburg. Your tour will view the buildings and monuments from the outside only.

For centuries, Salzburg was a proud state ruled by Archbishops who lavished great wealth on the city sometimes called the “Rome of the North” because of its many churches and cathedrals. It is also called the “City of Mozart”, as it was the birthplace of the 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Salzburg's “Old Town” (Altstadt) has internationally renowned baroque architecture and one of the best-preserved city centers north of the Alps. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

Near the start of your walk you will see the world famous baroque gardens of Mirabell, which feature in scenes from the film “The Sound Of Music”. You will also see Getreidegasse 9, the house where Mozart was born in 1756 and where he lived with his family till 1773.

Getreidegasse is also the city’s most famous shopping lane. It has high narrow houses tightly packed together, tantalising shops and decorative wrought iron guild signs. Although the houses appear very narrow they are not actually small, extending far back on both sides of the street.

On a route through the hidden byways of the Old City you will see the Salzburg Cathedral, St. Peter's Monastery and many other important landmarks.

Salzburg Cathedral (Salzburger Dom) is a 17th century baroque building on ancient foundations. Described by some as the finest Renaissance building in the Germanic countries, Salzburg Cathedral has a marble facade, twin symmetrical towers and the font in which Mozart was baptized.

St. Peter's Monastery – this Benedictine monastery is said to be the oldest in the German-speaking world. Used as a base by St. Rupert in the late 7th and early 8th century, some experts believe the origins of the community go back to the time of St. Severin in the 5th century.

The tour ends in the center of the old town, near a church known as the “German Church”.
