Salzburg is one of the largest and most famous cities in Austria. It has a huge number of ancient historical sites that perfectly show the culture and traditions of the inhabitants of this place in the old days. There are Catholic churches and cathedrals; theaters and luxurious concert halls; majestic castles and palaces. There are also a lot of different museums, which collect unusual and unique household items of the inhabitants of ancient Salzburg.
Salzburg is located just five kilometers from the state border with Germany, but far enough from the Austrian capital Vienna – three hundred kilometers. It is quite convenient to get there by highway from the German city of Munich, because it is only 115 kilometers to the West. It is there that professional bus tours to the most interesting places of Salzburg and the Lake District usually start – an area of insane beauty not far from the historic center of the city.
The indigenous people of Salzburg are very fond of music festivals, so you can often hear loud music and voices on the streets. By the way, Salzburg is the birthplace of the great composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. One of the largest hotels in the city is named after him, and you can learn more about his life in one of the several museums in the city center, which are dedicated to his personality. The participants of the bus tour in Salzburg after the excursion of a professional guide will have free time to do shopping, walk through the streets, see the architecture and have a snack before the road further.
After a tour of Salzburg, a bus with tourists and a guide will go further along the route – to the Lake District nearby. It is a cluster of several lakes that are close to each other and create a picturesque landscape. It is interesting that the water in them is crystal clear and transparent – the water is not contaminated with industrial waste. The nature here is almost untouched by human. The area is hilly, so you can see the beautiful slopes covered with dense deciduous forests. The undulating surface of the Earth forms low lake valleys and majestic hills from which you can admire the scenery for kilometers around.
In these beautiful places was created the film “The Sound of music”, which was published in 1965. Tourists will be able to see and even walk through the locations shown in the film, as if plunged into the atmosphere of the film, which is more than half a century.
After the guide’s story, the tour participants will have a boat trip across Wolfgang lake. On the opposite shore, the bus, ready for the way back to Munich, will meet the tourists.
