Departure to Salzburg
Due to its historic old town and cultural significance, Salzburg was declared a World Heritage Site 25 years ago. Explore the historic old town with me on a tour and get to know the history and the most important sights:
** Fortress Hohensalzburg - one of the largest castle complexes in Europe with fantastic view over the old town
** "The Sound of Music" locations such as Cemetery St. Peter, Horse Pond at Karajan Square or Mirabell Palace and Gardens
** Mozart's birthplace
** Salzburg Cathedral, first baroque church North of the Alps
** Getreidegasse with its picturesque wrought iron signs
** Salzburg Residenz - splendid baroque palace of the prince-archbishops who ruled Salzburg for centuries
** There will be enough time for yourself if you wish to stroll through the town at your own pace (lunch, museum, shopping)
Onward journey to Hellbrunn Palace (ca. 15 minutes)
With its trick fountains and water gardens, Hellbrunn Palace is definitely a very unique sight. Built in the 17th century as a summer residence by one of Salzburg's prince-archbishops, the Palace still entertains and surprises its visitors with enchanted grottos, playful water machines and a mechanical theater.
In the vicinity of Salzburg there are other great sights that are worth visiting. Shorten your stay in Salzburg and / or extend the duration of the tour and experience one of the following sights. The times given include the total time required (travel time and viewing time)
Herrenchiemsee Palace is one of the royal castles of the Bavarian King Ludwig II, idyllically located on an island in the picturesque Lake Chiemsee. Here King Ludwig carried out his most expensive building program as an architectural reference to Versailles to honor the French Sun King Louis the XIV. Neo-baroque splendor and a boat tour with fantastic landscape impressions await you on this tour option.
Duration: ca. 3 hours
Especially for children an exciting experience is a visit to the Berchtesgaden Salt Mine. On a guided tour, you drive into the interior of the mountain on original mine railways, slide down on wooden slides and cross an underground lake on a wooden raft.
Duration: ca. 2 hours
A bus ride on a steep mountain road with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains brings us to the summit of the Kehlstein where the Eagle's Nest is situated. It is one of the few original buildings from the time of the Third Reich here on Obersalzberg. This option is an opportunity to learn more about the time of National Socialism and this historic place that used to be the second seat of government of the Nazi regime besides Berlin.
Duration: ca. 3 hours, best before Salzburg
