See Mozart's former residence, birthplace, and many monuments dedicated to this great Austrian composer. Stop to admire the city's Baroque architecture, such as the stunning white walls of Kollegienkirche and Salzburg Cathedral. Book a 3-hour walking tour to see more of Salzburg and visit Kollegienkirche (Collegiate Church) and the courtyard of St. Peter's Abbey. Inside the Kollegienkirche, the church of the University of Salzburg, marvel at the clean, white design, and learn about its famous organ.

Finish your 3-hour tour with a visit to the courtyards of a medieval monastery complex that has served as the spiritual heart of Salzburg for more than 1,000 years.

Step inside the 17th-century Baroque cathedral to admire its beautiful interior with stunning frescos, a huge organ, and the baptismal font in which Mozart was baptized.

Finish with a visit to the cathedral museum, which houses sacred art and other treasures. See as much of Salzburg as possible with the 6-hour tour.

the guide was quite knowledgeable and kind, even if the cost of the 3 hour tour is not exactly cheap, i recommend a price adjustment.

Great tour to learn about the city in a short amount of time, especially for the first time travelers. Our guide was Maroine, a very pleasant company, who told us lots of interesting details, without being boring. I highly recommend the tour.
