Pass through the Chiemgau before arriving in Salzburg, the birthplace of Mozart. Stroll the picturesque old city and major attractions including Salzburg Cathedral, St Peter's Abbey and Mozart Square.

On Lake Wolfgangsee, there is the possibility of a boat ride to the famous White Horse Inn overlooking the lake, and a visit to the pilgrim church.

Upon your return journey to Munich, you will pass by Lake Mondsee, which was used in several scenes of the much-loved movie The Sound of Music.

NOT a Sound of Music Tour

My daughter and I were so excited to take the bus from Munich to Salzburg to see the Sound of Music tour. We were extremely disappointed. The tour guide was not licensed for Austria and could only lead us in to Salzburg and we were...More

Great way to see a lot in one day!

This is a great tour but be prepared for a long day and tight schedule. Salzburg is beautiful - you have time on your own to explore but don't be late for the meeting to return to the bus. We had a couple of people...More

So so trip

The tour was not really as advertised. We got just over an hour in Salzburg because the tour left late (the tour guide was arguing with not only passengers but the driver), then the boat tour was schedule relatively early which also reduced our time...More
