Classic Salzburg

Salzburg EXCLUSIVE … private walking tours “beyond touristical mainstream”

During our private walking tour we discover the Burgher Town with its narrow crooked streets and unique passage ways of the so-called „Getreidegasse“ with its famous handcraft ateliers. Salzburg’s commercial centre still remains in its medieval charme contrasting the great spacious squares of the district where the Archbishops used to live in their Residence. We’ll pass by Mozart’s Birthplace, the main cathedral „Dom“ and the Festival Halls before we reach the monastery of the Benedictines called St. Peter – dating back to 696 AC! The participants will get informed about the importance of salt commerce and medical supply in the middle ages, hear interesting stories of the musicians Wolfgang Amadeus and Michael Haydn and learn about traditional beer brewing and local specialities like „Salzburger Schnitzel“, the popular sausages called „Frankfurter“ and the only „original Mozart chocolate“, which they can try in the Café Fürst! Of course we’ll also walk on the traces of the famous movie „The Sound of Music“!

Optional: Let’s visit late Gothic state rooms and hidden spots in Salzburg’s symbol the fortress „Hohensalzburg“ – highly recommendable – please calculate 1 additional hour

You’ll learn about medieval trade with the white gold (the salt), hear interesting details about Mozart/Haydn/Karajan, the famous Salzburg Festival and we follow trails of famous women of Salzburg. We discover Salzburg’s Italianità, the ‘Walk of Modern Art’, and have a taste of Salzburg goodies including the famous original Mozart chocolate … there is definitely something for every taste!

Castles & Residences in Salzburg:

The Archbishops as souvereigns of Salzburg knew the most beautiful places for relaxing summerdays and enchanting festivals! They have left a rich heritage of splendid residences around the city of Salzburg. I will tell you stories about the Castles Leopoldskron, ancestral castle of the family Firmian and later ‘lived dream’ of the creator of Salzburgs summer festival Max Rainhardt. Herrnau, Emslieb, Emsburg,  Fronburg and Castle Anif – every single place has a special history.

Hellbrunn Castle built at the beginning of the 17th century in the style called „Manierismo“ is famous for its tricky water fountains and another example of italian lifestyle. The gardens of Hellbrunn are designed as a wide area surrounding the castle – an ideal place for a picknick maybe next to the “Gazebo” from the movie “Sound of Music”! A wonderful tour especially when we take the bike tour!
