Mozart Tickets & Tours

Follow in the footsteps of the greatest composer the world has ever seen with your Mozart Tour tickets!  Although Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart spent nearly half of his adult life travelling between performances throughout Europe, the rest was spent primarily in Vienna.  However, having grown up in Salzburg, you’ll find plenty of Mozart attractions in that city, as well.  Regardless of whether you’re planning a Salzburg trip, a Vienna tour, or both, the legacy of Mozart will probably factor heavily into your plans.  Check out his childhood home and other places that he frequented in his youth during a Salzburg vacation.  Or, see where he and his wife stayed during a Vienna trip.  You can also visit the venues where he once performed or even his favorite watering holes.  You can even create a Mozart trip in Vienna by booking a historical segway tour.  Or, take a Salzburg daytrip from Vienna and see where the most powerful musical mind in history was nurtured and developed.  It’s what to do in Austria if you love classical music!

Good to know

Best time to visit

The best time to take a Mozart Tour is in April, May, September, and October.  These months represent the shoulder seasons and present the best combination of mild weather and less crowding.  Peak season is during summer between the months of June and August, when you’ll experience the largest crowds of the year and inflated prices on accommodations.  The low season is between November and March, when many of the smaller towns close up shop and the large cities host local festivals.  Should you wish to do a little skiing during your Mozart trip, you’ll want to arrive sometime between December and February, which is considered the peak skiing season.  And, the Austrian Alps are absolutely beautiful during this time of the year.

Getting there

In Salzburg, just about every Mozart attraction is within one mile of the Old Town.  So, most people on a Salzburg vacation simply walk.  If you’d like to check out the Salzburg attractions outside of the city, you’ll most likely take Bus 25 to the Salzburg Zoo or Hellbrunn Palace.  And, if you have an especially busy itinerary, you might want to consider renting a bike, which is very popular among visitors on a Salzburg vacation.  In Vienna, you’ll find no shortage of public transit options.  However, most Mozart attractions are, understandably, in the oldest parts of the city.  Depending on where you book your hotel, you’ll want to make use of the U-Bahn, tram, busses, and/or taxis.  Give some thought to the idea of picking up a Vienna Pass, which can provide unlimited use of the public transit systems, as well as free/discounted entry to some of the top Vienna attractions.
