Venture from Munich to Salzburg on a rail day trip with a guide at your side. Train travel in a new place can be daunting, but this excursion removes the hassle, letting you focus less on logistics and more on Salzburg. Once there, you'll get your bearings and hear Salzburg's history on a walking tour. Then, you'll enjoy ample free time to see the sights at your own pace.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Munich, and board your train with your prebooked ticket. After just a 2-hour journey, you'll arrive in the heart of Salzburg.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the little Austrian city packs a punch with its history and culture. Hear tales of Mozart and the Sound of Music as you explore, and discover sights, such as Mirabell Palace Gardens, Salzburg Cathedral, and the Hohensalzburg Fortress.

When your walking tour ends, the afternoon is your own to explore as you wish. Perhaps visit Mozart’s Birthplace (Mozarts Geburtshaus), or sate your appetite with a slice of Sacher torte, Salzburg's signature sweet bite. In the early evening, you'll meet your guide for the train journey back to Munich.

City is very impressive. The fortress is very unique and other historic buildings offer a different look at things (especially for those of us who live in countries that are only a couple of hundred years old). Tons of shops, stores, food, and candy/chocolate businesses....More

One trio from our tour went up to the fortress. It took up a good portion of their free time so I wouldn't recommend it unless you are in Salzburg for more than a day trip.
