In the afternoon , departure for a pleasant stroll with a Local Guide through the historic center.
The city of Salzburg - and especially its historic city center - is in fact one of the loveliest places in Europe, winning international acclaim in 1997 when it was designated a world heritage site by UNESCO.
What is so special about Salzburg? For one, its convenient location. The Salzach River, flowing from the Prealps in the south, winds through the city as its historic lifeline and separates it into two halves, the so-called left and right banks of the Salzach. The left bank of the Salzach is the "older part" where ancient Roman settlements once stood. The Nonntal Bridge, Mozart Footbridge (pedestrians only), State Bridge, Makart Footbridge and Mülln Footbridge (both for pedestrians only) connect the two sides of the city.
The Old City is picturesquely surrounded by the Mönchsberg, crowned by the Fortress which is visible for miles, and the mighty Capuchin Mountain on the right banks of the river. The Old City with its variety of building styles is a true architectural delight, also a result of the city's strict preservation laws. A walk through the countless narrow streets (the most famous being the Getreidegasse, Judengasse, Goldgasse, Kaigasse, Linzergasse and Steingasse) features buildings from the Middle Ages, Romanesque, Baroque and Renaissance periods as well as the elegant classical burghers' houses dating from the monarchy. Hardly any age failed to leave its architectural imprint on Salzburg. The city's most famous squares include Residence Square with its splendid fountain, the neighboring Old Market, University Square, as well as Mozart Square with the memorial of the city's genius loci. The square also features the city's most central Tourist Information Office.
There is no lack of imposing buildings, the most striking of which include the Cathedral, Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Residenz, St. Peter's Monastery with its impressive cemetery, the Franciscan Church and Collegiate Church as well as the Large and Small Festival Halls and the Summer Riding School in the Festival District. On the right banks of the Salzach one should not miss Mirabell Palace with the romantic Mirabell Gardens (one of the city's most popular snapshot scenes) or St. Sebastian's Church with its charming cemetery
A pedestrian bridge brings us to the charming main street, the Getreidegasse, where we will visit the Mozarthaus, the mansion where the composer was born. We stroll through spacious squares to the Residenz, with the art collection of the ruling Prince-Archbishops; the Italianate Cathedral; the austere Franciskanerkirche and the ancient Abbey of St Peter. Here we will look in to the rococo church, glimpse the venerable churchyard set alongside the rock wall of the Mönchsberg.

Visitors from all over the world use the opportunity to see the locations in the city of Salzburg, where the film 'The Sound of Music' was shot. Especially amongst fans from overseas the film has reached a unique status and incredible popularity - and many of them dream of following Maria's footsteps at least once in their life.
We will show you the locations where the film was shot:
The Benedictine Convent on Nonnberg: it is here that nuns sing 'Maria'
Mirabell Gardens and Mirabell Palace : Maria and the children sing 'Do-Re-Mi'
Residenz Square and Residenz Fountain : Maria crosses Residenz square in a bus on her way from Nonnberg Convent to the Trapp Villa singing 'I have confidence in me'
Felsenreitschule: here, the Trapp Family performed its farewell song and Baron von Trapp sang Edelweiss
St. Peter's Cemetery : it was here that the dramatic flight scenes were filmed
Leopoldskron Palace: the façade facing the lake represented the von Trapp residence
The Sound of Music Pavillon: can be found at Hellbrunn Palace today, in the movie it was still located at Leopoldskron Palace. One of the most famous and romantic scenes was filmed here: 'I am 16 going on 17'
Frohnburg Palace: courtyard and main front were used as a backdrop
