  • Day 3 - Salzburg

    Today, our optional excursion takes us to the ‘Sound of Music’ city of Salzburg where there will be free time for you to explore the sights at your leisure. Perhaps take a short walk along the Salzach River or treat yourself to a panoramic view of the city from the Hohensalzburg Fortress (at own cost). The funicular is a fast and convenient way to get up to the fortress and back down to the Old City. Be sure to saunter along the Getreidegasse, Salzburg’s most popular shopping mile.

    During the Advent season, the largest attraction has to be the Christmas markets which are located on Cathedral and Residenz Square in the heart of the historic city centre. Here you will experience the incredible old Austrian tradition and find the most wonderful Christmas presents for your loved ones at home.

    Whilst in Salzburg be sure to spend time in one of the city’s traditional coffeehouses set against the backdrop of stunning architecture and busy squares. Order a piece of Mozart cake and a coffee or, if you prefer, relax with a warming Glühwein – the choice is yours!
