What to expect

This walk starts with an exploration of Salzburg’s Burgher Town with its narrow, crooked little streets and the unique passage ways of the so-called „Getreidegasse.“ Salzburg’s commercial center still remains intact in its medieval charm contrasting the great spacious Baroque squares of the district where the Archbishops presided over the city in their Residence.

We pass by Mozart’s Birthplace and the Festival Halls before we reach the monastery of the Benedictines called St. Peter – dating back to 696 AC. Along with stories of Salzburg’s medieval salt commerce and medical innovations, we follow the childhoods of Wolfgang and Nannerl Mozart as well as the life story of the great second musical son of the city, the composer, Michael Haydn.

By the end of the walk, visitors know our local customs and traditions, our cultural and political history, and our enviable musical heritage. Last but not least, you will learn the true story of the global movie classic The Sound of Music ‘s Trapp family, one of the authentically great refugee tales of the second world war.
