Bavarian Mountains and Salt Mines

On leaving Salzburg the journey takes us along the King's Lake river to the picturesque Alpenstrasse. Upon arrival at the mines slip into traditional miners' clothes and enter the mines to hear historical and legendary tales of the fascinating underground world. Using the same slides as hundreds of miners before, descend to the grottos, the magical world beneath the surface of the earth. You end your adventure with a raft sail across the famous salt lake, accompanied by eerie, mystical sounds.

Original Sound of Music Tour

Highlights of the Original Sound of Music Tour, recommended by Maria von Trapp, include a tour of Mirabell Gardens, where Maria and the children danced to 'Do-Re-Mi', and the opportunity to view the wedding church at Mondsee. In between film locations you can relax and listen to the famous songs and lyrics from the film, including 'Edelweiss', 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen' and of course the glorious title song 'The Sound of Music'. The tour also takes in the historical and architectural landmarks in the city of Salzburg, as well as a part of the picturesque lake district.

This combo tour was the perfect combination for me and my teen daughter. We did the salt mines first. The scenery on the drive was beautiful and the tour of the mines was fun! We took fun photos in the goofy mining clothes. Our afternoon on the Sound of Music tour was a super highlight of our trip! I was happy to find that most of the tour spots were reached by bus, visiting spots we couldn't get to by just walking around Salzburg. Incredible scenery past lakes and mountains! Our guide was super knowledgeable and entertaining too.. A few movie myths got busted as we walked through iconic movie scenes and got all the photos we wanted. We had fun singing along to the sound track on the bus too. And yes, we enjoyed learning about the real Von Trapp family too. If your not already a super-fan of the movie, you should be sure to watch it shortly before your tour... the scenes really come alive... with the sound of music! LOVED IT!
