Salzburg Small-Group Day Tour from Munich

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Take a day trip to the home town of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on a guided full-day rail tour from Munich to Salzburg. Considered one of the jewels in the crown of Europe, the city of Salzburg has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, framed by the majestic backdrop of the snow-capped Alps and famed for its old-world glamour.
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport by high-speed train
  • Guided Salzburg tour: Get your bearings before exploring independently
  • See filming sights from The Sound of Music, including Mirabell Palace
  • Small group tour: maximum of 15 participants
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group at Munich’s Central Train Station. Then travel aboard an air-conditioned train, enjoying views of the Bavarian Alps and Austrian countryside on the journey to Salzburg. On a walking tour, listen to your guide’s comprehensive introduction to the city. Discover Old Town, a UNESCO-listed site; admire historic landmarks, such as the Domkirche Cathedral and the Hohensalzburg Fortress (Festung Hohensalzburg); and learn more about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was born in Salzburg, and The Sound of Music, which was filmed in and around the city. After the tour, spend a few hours exploring independently. Stroll around Old Town’s medieval lanes and browse the shops for souvenirs, sample traditional Austrian cuisine with lunch at a local restaurant (own expense), visit Mirabell Palace, or climb the hilltop to take in the views from the castle. Your tour ends back at the Munich train station.

Mark did a great job. As a matter of fact, we enjoyed the tour and Salzburg so much that we decided to stay the night. We were like Reacher without the toothbrush.

Poor communication from the start. The whole group was confused from start to finish. The tour said we left from "Train Station A" but we actually met there, went on a mad dash into the subway and then went to another train station. The guide...More

I don’t think the weather is that much of a problem. Make sure you have an umbrella with you if there is a threat of rain. Weather was beautiful when we were there but I know of others who visited when it was raining and... More
I’m trying to provide my Review of our day trip to Salzburg May 31, but I can’t find a link? While the tour in Salzburg was worthwhile, the Radius Tour and in particular the Train trips were a Mis-Adventure, both ways! Thanks to Iain and Sabina for guiding this Large group (58?), which they split into two almost 30 each! (Not a Small Group, maximum 15 as advertised!) About halfway on our train trip from Munich to Salzburg our train was halted at a station where we were instructed we would need to leave this train (track/switch repairs?) and board buses to go 2 stops further to board another train to continue to Salzburg. There weren’t nearly enough buses for a packed train; and our guides decided we should just wait for a following train, which may now be able to continue through to Salzburg? When we boarded an hour later we were crowded onto an already busy train (many passengers were left standing)! This was our third train trip in Germany in May, and All of them have left paying passengers Standing for most of a trip of several hours! For our return trip, which Sabina had agreed to schedule an hour later so we had more free time in Salzburg, we had another poor experience. Again about 2/3 of our trip the train halts at a station and we were instructed in German to get off the train! Sabina said these cars were not continuing?? Once we got off, we realized people were getting on other already full cars to find Standing room only for the rest of our train trip! I guess the Train service decided to drop some cars? As you can tell, both of these train rides took away what could have been a great tour to beautiful Salzburg, but Viatours/ Radius tours need to find an alternative to unreliable train service! Our guides mentioned they have had recent train cancellations and delays earlier this week as well - not making their job the pleasure it should be, sharing their knowledge and stories. Thanks to Iain and Sabina for working to make the best of this journey. Unsatisfied traveler, Peter
