Discover Salzburg, a world cultural heritage ...
Salzburg is the world famous city of „The Sound Of Music", birthplace of genius composer W.A. Mozart, stage of the international Salzburg Summer Festivals, and perhaps one of the "3 most beautiful cities in the World" (according to historic explorer Alexander von Humboldt).
This is the walking tour guided in the heart of the city of Salzburg, and begins in the "New Town", at Mirabell Garden with it's Palace Mirabell that was built by a baroque Archbishop. We'll explore the Old Town, with a view on the Fortress "Hohensalzburg" as a vivid reminder of Salzburg's unique history as an independent church state for centuries. You'll see many well kept historical buildings from medieval to barroque times, and experience & learn more about W.A. Mozart.
note: Alternatively you can visit the Fortress " Hohensalzburg" instead of " Mozart´s Birthplace". ( price for the funicular : 12 € + fortress : 15 €)
