Bavarian Mountains and Salt Mines
On leaving Salzburg the journey takes us along the King’s Lake river to the picturesque Alpenstrasse. Upon arrival at the mines slip into traditional miners’ clothes and enter the mines to hear historical and legendary tales of the fascinating underground world. Using the same slides as hundreds of miners before, descend to the grottos, the magical world beneath the surface of the earth. You end your adventure with a raft sail across the famous salt lake, accompanied by eerie, mystical sounds.
Original Sound of Music Tour
Highlights of the Original Sound of Music Tour, recommended by Maria von Trapp, include a tour of Mirabell Gardens, where Maria and the children danced to ‘Do-Re-Mi’, and the opportunity to view the wedding church at Mondsee. In between film locations you can relax and listen to the famous songs and lyrics from the film, including ‘Edelweiss’, ‘Sixteen Going on Seventeen’ and of course the glorious title song ‘The Sound of Music’. The tour also takes in the historical and architectural landmarks in the city of Salzburg, as well as a part of the picturesque lake district.

We were lucky in that the day we went was sunny weather-wise, until we were returning on the bus. Consequently the morning in the mountains seeing the salt mine was excellent. That afternoon Sound of Music tour was made all the more enjoyable for me as a non-fan of the movie, by the wise-cracks of the guide. Good fun!
