You’ll be on your feet and ready to go bright and early in the morning because you won’t want to miss a thing. After a enjoying the spectacular view from our terrace where you’ll be having breakfast on the top floor, you’ll be ready to set out on the route you’ve put together.
Off you go along the pedestrian zone across the Salzach past the Town Hall (Rathaus). And here is the first highlight of your tour, Mozart’s house of birth in Getreidegasse. You continue towards St. Blasius Kirche and take a sharp left along Mönchsberg and reach the opulent Festspiel area. Here in the old town, there is one magnificent sight after the other.
The Museum of Modernity, the Franziskanerkirche, the Residenz, the Salzburger Dom and St. Peter are just the most important. After you have found a few souvenirs for the family at Domplatz, allow your legs a little rest and take a ride on the Festungsbahn (train) rather than walking up the hill to the Hohensalzburg Fortress. From up there, the view is naturally indescribable. Back in the old town, marvel at the Salzburger Glockenspiel and then walk across Mozartplatz.
The Mozartsteg will take you to the other side of the Salzach. Stroll along the river towards Mozart’s former home. After having a good look, you can progress to the Mozarteum. The final highlight is the Mirabelle garden, where you can sit on a bench and rest your tired feet.
Once through the interior courtyard of the Mirabelle Palace, you can head back towards the hotel. Your stomach is bound to be growling by now, and you can refresh yourself with a few original Salzburger Mozartkugeln. Back at the hotel, put on your best dress and visit a wonderful concert at the Salzburger Festspiele.
After experiencing so much culture and history, be careful you don’t end up running around the city à la Mozart in a wig carrying a conductor’s baton.
