Join me to visit Salzburg, one of the prettiest cities you're likely to encounter in your European travels. Then we go for more fun and history to explore one of the oldest salt mines in Obersalzberg. This is a great family day trip.
Your private guide will pick you up at your Munich hotel. Then we drive south-east along the Bavarian Alps to Austria, Salzburg, the city of the famous movie The Sound of Music.Salzburg is one of the prettiest cities you’re likely to encounter in your European travels. Especially if you spend most of your time in the Altstadt (old town) on the left bank of the Salzach River. The Altstadt probably has more masterpieces of Baroque architecture per hectare than any other city on Earth.First, we see the Mirabell Castle with its incredible Gardens, Mozart-Wohnhaus. Then cross the river to see the composer’s birthplace and childhood home in the Getreidegasse. Or maybe take the funicular up to Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Festung (fortress) is 120 meters or 400 feet above the river, providing great views of the city. And of course, we visit the Domplatz and Cathedral.Afterwards, we drive back to Germany to Berchtesgaden and we visit the town’s 500-year-old salt mine on Obersalzberg.Dress up like a miner and take a slide into the disco-lit depths of the still functional salt mine. After our tour in Salt Mines, we drive back to your hotel.
