Salzburg is a unique city. It harmoniously combines Alpine nature and ancient architecture. To explore a city with such a rich historical heritage, it is not enough to wander around with a guidebook in your hands. I suggest you to walk through the old town of Salzburg with knowledge of the matter.
Salzburg is a compact city and walking around it is a great pleasure. But what if the weather is rainy, or you are traveling with elderly relatives or young children. Maybe you want to see more of Salzburg, going to the historical objects outside the old town? Then the perfect option for you is a 3.5 - 4 hour car-walking tour by my 8-seater minibus.
After visiting Salzburg, it's a sin not to go to admire the Alps. And since the highest mountain in Austria is relatively close to Salzburg, an excursion along the panoramic road to the Grossglockner mountain should definitely be included in the program of your trip!
Eisriesenwelt is a system of huge interconnected caves stretching through the bowels of the mountains for 42 kilometers. The areas closest to the surface of the caves are covered with centuries-old ice formations that are constantly growing and changing their shape.
Ludwig II is rightfully considered the most famous ruler of Bavaria of the 19 century. The monarch's personality is rather ambiguous. In the second period of his rulership, the king distanced himself from politics, withdrawing in his fairy-tale world.
What else I strongly recommend to do when visiting Salzburg is to alternate an educational holiday with an active one. Then you will get a vivid impression of your trip to Austria. You will be convinced of the absolute correctness of the expression - Movement is Life!
Hohenwerfen is one of the most impressive fortifications in Europe. It rises majestically above the valley of the Salzach River, blocking the path of the enemy for centuries. In museums, you will visit ancient halls, bell towers, casemates with instruments of torture, an armory.
Water is life, strength, time. No photo can convey the beauty of a bubbling stream, and even more so the noise, shine, smell of water. Such a miracle of nature must be seen for yourself. The Krimml Waterfalls are located 120 kilometers from Salzburg in the Hohe Tauern National Park.
Let me ask you, which is the most recognizable image of Austria? You can check it just typing one word "AUSTRIA" in google. What do you see? Image of Mozart's house in Salzburg? Palace Schönbrunn in Vienna? Golden roof in Innsbruck? No. You´ll see the small town Hallstatt in the lake district Salzkammergut.
