This package combines 2 of our most popular family tours.
Sound of Music
This tour, which has been Salzburg’s most popular tour since 1967, is a combination of both historical Salzburg and the breathtaking Lakes and Mountains region. We will show you many of the film locations from the ‘Sound of Music’ and share not only background stories of the movie but also the history and culture of the region. Find out with us whether the hills of Salzburg truly are alive with the ‘Sound of Music’ as you listen to the original movie Soundtrack along the way.
Starting in Salzburg we had south out of the city towards the Salt mines. Before entering the mine you will dress like a miner (protective clothing provided) and then travel by miner’s train into the heart of the mountain. Once inside this remarkable underground world the knowledgeable local miner/guide will amaze you with tales of the history of the salt, how it was mined, transported and used. Going down further into the caverns you can use the miners’ slides, great fun for all ages. Then be amazed within the mountain as you travel by raft across a Salt Lake. Finally after touring these enchanting underground labyrinths we return to the outside world on the same train.
