Discover the Salzburg historic district!

With such a wealth of attractions just waiting to be discovered, a guided tour of Salzburg is particularly rewarding. Not only will the guides provide you with background information, they will also show you many a spot that even the Salzburg locals aren’t aware of: be that with your tour group, by bus, on foot or even in a rickshaw: Salzburg has so many things certain to astonish and amaze you.

On foot

Disappear into the very heart of the Salzburg historic district, where vehicle traffic is kept to an absolute minimum. A walking tour of the city is a must and the best way to discover the fortress and churches, magnificent state rooms and plazas of Baroque Salzburg.

By bus

Bus tours are a great way to explore the city and nearby areas. Be that one of the Hop-On-Hop-Off tours, a Sound of Music Day to the original shooting locations, or in classic style, on a double-decker bus. The choice is all yours.

By ship

The Amadeus lies at anchor in the heart of the city and will carry you upriver almost all the way to Hellbrunn. A shorter cruise concluding with a waltz is also a great reason to cast off on the river.

By horse-drawn carriage

The horse-drawn carriages known as “fiakers” are a charming way to explore Salzburg. The leisurely tempo will transport you back to bygone days, while the coachman with expert local knowledge will show you the most beautiful corners of the city.

On your own

That said, probably the most beautiful way to discover the city is to set out on your own, simply following your own nose. Enjoy a leisurely walk across the city mountains, drift through the streets of the historic district, take a break for a cup of coffee whenever you feel like it, and collect experiences that are uniquely your own. While you might perhaps miss out on an important sightseeing attraction or two, you will more than make up for that with something equally intriguing.
