ABOUT THE Day Trip to Salzburg

On this 10-hour tour from Munich (6 hours excluding transfer time), your expert guide will take you on a two-hour train journey through the stunning Bavarian countryside to the charming city of Salzburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We'll take you on an orientation walking tour of the old town center, taking in some of the most beautiful and historic sites the city has to offer.

An easy day trip from Munich

If you don’t have time on your European trip to visit Austria, don’t fret! You can see one of Austria’s most beautiful cities, Salzburg, all on an easy day trip from Munich. You’ll jump on the train for a two-hour scenic journey through the Bavarian countryside, returning to Munich at approximately 7pm.

Stunning scenery

You’ll want to keep your camera at the ready, as you stroll along the picturesque Salzach River, and enjoy the views of the stunning alps. For Sound of Music fans, you’ll visit the Mirabell Palace Gardens, home to some of the musical’s most famous scenes, as well as seeing the impressive Salzburg Cathedral, where Salzburg native Mozart was baptized.

Take an orientation tour and then explore on your own

Upon arriving in Salzburg, your guide will lead you on a 2.5-hour orientation tour, helping you to find some of the major landmarks of the old town center, including the 13th Century Old Market, and the church and cemetery of St Peter’s monastery. After that, you’ll get a few hours to yourself to explore Salzburg at your own pace. Take in the Hohensalzburg Fortress, or taste a delicious authentic Sachertorte (chocolate cake). What you choose to do in Salzburg is up to you!
