Small-Group Day Trip from Vienna to Salzburg

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    The tour will take you through the gorgeous Vienna Woods, where you will see some of the peaks of the Austrian Alps. These become closer in view until you reach the famous Lake Region.

    Before getting to Salzburg, make several stops in Salzkammergut (Lake Region), well known for the celebrated film "The Sound of Music". Follow some of the footsteps of the famous movie and taste the excellent water quality of Attersee, one of Austria's biggest lakes. Experience the uniqueness of the tiny village of St. Gilgen that counts among its attractions with the birth house of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s mother.

    Upon arrival in Salzburg you will be taken for a sightseeing tour covering the most remarkable landmarks of the town. Visit the Do-Re-Mi stairs from "The Sound of Music" in Mirabell gardens, discover Mozart's birth house, Salzburg Cathedral and St Peter's Abbey in the old town and taste the original Mozart chocolate balls by Fürst.

    Enjoy your free time after the sightseeing tour.

    Plentiful opportunities to take memorable pictures.

    The Day Trip concludes with a return to Vienna and a drop off at your hotel.
