  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Discover the bewitching beauty of Salzburg with this flexible hop-on hop-off bus tour.

    Admire the city’s grand 17th and 18th century houses and the magnificent palaces and gardens. View the baroque splendor of Mirabell and see Schloss Hellbrunn, famous for the trick fountains that give unwary visitors surprise showers.

    Salzburg is of course Mozart’s city and the composer is widely celebrated here. Visit his childhood home in an old burgher’s house and also view the residence he moved to later in life.

    The city was also famously the setting for the ‘Sound of Music’. Fans can find scenes from the film like the gazebo where Rolf and Liesl sang ‘Sixteen Going on Seventeen’ and see the Abbey where the original Maria Augusta von Trapp, whose story inspired the movie, was a teacher.

    With 12 convenient stops, your hop-on hop-off tour covers all the main attractions.
