Great family experience. Went with my wife and kids 5 and 8 and it was just us and 2 other ladies. I wasn’t sure how taking the kids would work out but they loved it and were able to be fully involved. After the struddle and cookies went in the oven we sat to eat the goulash and probably the best I’ve had. Kids both loved it as well. We sampled our struddle and cookies after and what we couldn’t eat we were able to carry home. The building we cooked in was built into the stone and had a cool atmosphere and overall the experience exceeded my expectations.

The guides shared a lot of information about the place. They were friendly. There weee two of them as we were transported to Berchtesgaden in two cans. One of them went up with us in bus. The view from top is breathtaking!

I can only recommend the boat trip. It was rich in information and a lot of fun. A big thank you also to the captain, who turned the boat trip through 360 degrees and turned it into an unforgettable highlight.

The Salzburg Card is an ingenious way to save money and simplify a lot. Almost everything that is great to see in Salzburg is included.

It was all excellent. We were able to visit the most famous places in the city, without paying anything more
