Take a Day Trip to Salzburg from Munich
Mozart, the Sound of Music, Alpine views – what about a day trip to Austria? Salzburg may be in neighbouring Austria but this gem of a city is only 2 hours on a scenic train ride from Munich! Why not take advantage of such good news and take a day trip to Salzburg from Munich.
Nestled in the Austrian Alps, Salzburg is a beautifully preserved medieval town with the 900 year-old Festung Hohnensalzburg (fort) looking down over the old town and dominating the city’s skyline. Explore the medieval streets and see the spectacular Domkirche Cathedral and palaces in this scenic city. Also famous for chocolates and patisseries, there are countless places to grab a coffee and something sweet and watch the bustling city.
In the summer they have the awesome Salzburg festival and there are events all year round. Check the timetable of what’s on as they have concerts at the fortress!
For Mozart fans you can visit his childhood house complete with musical instruments along with his birthplace and some favourite spots of his including cafes and his hang outs.
Stiehl-Brauwelt is Salzburg’s oldest privately-owned brewery (525 years!!) and you can hot spot on our list of places to visit! There’s a beer tower, a cinema experience and of course – you can sample the beer! There are all kind of facts to learn about the beer making process – find out how the horses used to deliver the beer from the brewery around the town.
Salzburg’s Ice Caves
If you have time then visit Salzburg’s ice caves – the largest in the world and filled with spectacular ice sculptures. There’s a labyrinth of pathways amongst the caves and almost 30 miles of underground network to explore – don’t get lost! These are above the nearby village of Werfen and open from May to October. They’re underground (and made of ice…) so dress up warm!!
Hit the ski slopes
If you’re visiting in winter you can also go skiing in Salzburg if you’re staying a bit longer! There are free bus transfers from the slopes to the centre from December until March 19th. In summer you can do the Sound of Music tour of course – watch the lush green hills come alive!
