After breakfast, make your way to Mirabellplatz for the engaging Sound of Music Tour. You'll tour all the famous sites including Mirabell Gardens, Schloss Leopoldskron, the residence of the Von Trapp family in the film, Nonnberg Convent where Maria was a novice, and much more. Upon returning to the city center, use your 48 Hour Card to ride the funicular and visit the Hohensalzburg Fortress; the largest, fully preserved castle in Central Europe and stop at Cafe Fuerst for a complimentary coffee and pastry.
Your guide will meet you at your hotel for your Private Walking Tour. This 2.5-hour walk starts with an exploration of Salzburg's old town with its narrow, crooked little streets and the unique passageways. Salzburg's commercial center still remains intact in its medieval charm contrasting the great spacious Baroque squares of the district where the Archbishops presided over the city in their Residence. You will pass by Mozart's Birthplace on Getreidegasse and the Festival Halls before you reach St. Peter's Abbey; a monastery of the Benedictines dating back to 696 AD. Along the way, your guide will provide interesting stories of Salzburg's medieval salt history (the white gold) as well as tales about the Mozart family's lives and careers. This evening, enjoy a 3-course dinner at the historic Sternbräu. The "Sternbräu" is located right in the middle of the Old Town of Salzburg, along the pedestrian Getreidegasse.
