Tour description provided by Viator

While in Vienna don't miss your chance to visit Austria's other great city, Salzburg - home of Mozart and beautiful Mirabell Gardens and Palace. Travel through the stunning Austrian alps and lakes on this fantastic day trip to Salzburg. The tour includes guided walking tour of the city of Salzburg.

Traveling to Mozart's town of birth you'll be enchanted by the beautiful Salzkammergut landscape with its mountains and lakes, and where the Emperor Franz Joseph and his family used to spend their holidays. Skirting the Lake Fuschl and Lake Wolfgang you will reach Salzburg, where you will have free time for lunch.

Discover Salzburg with an afternoon walking tour through the old city. Your guide will show you the most important sights of the old Bishop's Seat including the Cathedral, the Festival Hall, St Peter's Abbey Church and its graveyard (the tomb of Mozart's sister Nannerl).

Among the busy shopping streets you'll see no. 9 Getreidegasse, where the famed Wolfgang Mozart was born and lived until he was 17 years old.

While passing through the gardens of Mirabell Palace you will see the statue of the Pegasus, the winged horse and perhaps here, the song 'Do-Re-Mi' from the movie Sound of Music will come to mind?

On your return journey to Vienna, enjoy great views as your coach passes through Fortress Hohensalzburg, one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. Your tour concludes with a drop off at Vienna State Opera or your selected hotel.
