Today we enjoy a guided tour of the lakes and mountains around
Salzburg. This stunning area is renowned for its beauty, and some
of the locations we visit today were featured in the classic film
'The Sound of Music'. This morning we enjoy a tour taking in some
of this beautiful region's most popular sights, including Hellbrunn
Castle Gardens. We also enjoy visits to St Gilgen, a small town on
the shores of Lake Wolfgangsee, and Mondsee, another lakeside town
that is home to the church used in the wedding scenes of the
musical. You have some free time in St Gilgen, the birthplace of
Mozart's mother, to explore its picturesque streets lined with
lively cafes, shops and frescoed houses. From here we continue to
St Wolfgang, a pretty little town on the north shores of the lake.
After taking in the delights of the area, we head back to Salzburg
in time for our evening meal.
