Experience Salzburg, worldwide known as the birthplace of Mozart and the city of Sound of Music. Also called as "Rome of the North" Salzburg owes its fame to its magnificent monuments in predominant Baroque style. The city was declared to a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has been ruled by the prince-archbishops for many centuries, who left their traces and created a cultural and historical heritage of unique importance and beauty. Renowned architects and artists worked throughout the centuries and built architectural jewels as the fortress of Hohensalzburg, the Cathedral and many glorious palaces. On our full day city tour we will visit all the important sights in the new and the old town, located on both sides of the river Salzach. This also includes visits of the Mozart houses, the cathedral, the St. Peter's church and the fortress on the top of the city mountain.
