For centuries, Salzburg was a proud state ruled by Archbishops who lavished great wealth and splendid architecture on the city sometimes called the "Rome of the North" because of its many churches and cathedrals. It is also called "the city of Music" as the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

On this walking tour, you can taken in examples of Salzburg's breathtaking Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque artistry. Near the start of your walk you will encounter the world-famous gardens of Mirabell Palace and view the house where Mozart was raised.

Crossing a footbridge into the Baroque City Center, you will see the house where Salzburg's most famous composer was born, and the renowned shopping street, the Getreidegasse. Among the picturesque streets and hidden byways of the Old City you will see the Salzburg Dome Cathedral, St. Peter's Monastery and many other important sights and symbols.

Your guide will cover not only the history of Salzburg, but also the most interesting information about its most famous citizens, from Mozart himself to Maria von Trapp.
