Day 3: Mozart Festival Town and Sound of Music in Salzburg
Today, we will extend this trip to Salzburg. On the way driving there along the earthly fairyland Lake Fuschl and Lake Wolfgang, take the rare chance to admire the picturesque scenery. On arrival in Salzburg, the guide will first leave you some time to have lunch on your own. Of course, he or she will be glad to give you some recommendations.
After, the guide will lead you to have a walking tour around the old downtown of Salzburg. We will visit the Cathedral, Salzburg's largest-scaled church built in the 17th century; the Festival Hall, the main venue of Salzburg Festival - the world-class classical music feast; and St. Peter's Abbey Church, the only Roman church in Salzburg, which was constructed in 696 AD.
After, going through the gardens of Mirabell Palace, you will see the statue of the Pegasus, the fountains and well-designed flower beds. You may also think of the song "Do-Re-Mi" from the movie "Sound of Music", which was just filmed in the gardens.
On the return trip to the hotel, we will pass by the Fortress Hohensalzburg, one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. This thousand-year-old landmark is honored never to be breached, on the highland in the old town.
