Description

Make the most of your time and save money with this 2-in-1 tour: "The Sound of Music" and "The Hellbrunn Salt Mines"!

Your day will begin with a tour of the different locations where "The Sound of Music" was filmed., including visits to the most beautiful sites that feature in the 1965 movie.

Your guide will first take you to Mirabell Gardens, adored for their vast flower beds in full bloom, the elegant statues dispersed perfectly around the grounds and the splendid rose garden. You'll also see Mirabell Palace, built in the 17th century for Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau, a member of the Austrian nobility and Prince-Bishop of Salzburg.

You'll then have a chance to wander around the grounds of the Leopoldskron Palace, which are characterized by a lake and lush greenery. Next, you'll go to Hellbrunn Palace, one of the city's architectural treasures which is considered as one of the most magnificent Renaissance structures north of the Alps.

You'll also discover Nonnberg Abbey (Europe's oldest Germanic abbey), Mondsee Abbey and the small village of St Gilgen overlooking Lake Wolfgang.

The excursion then changes course and theme as you head to Hellbrunn to visit the salt mines.

After putting on typical miners' gear, you'll take the special Hellbrunn mine train deep into the heart of this underground world. You'll then ride the special sled that the miners use to retrieve the salt further in the mountain.

A miner will join you to tell you about the fascinating history of the area and explain the techniques of salt extraction and transport. You'll wander through the sinuous labyrinth of the mines before coming back to the surface and returning to Salzburg.

Combine culture and fun during this tour that pairs two unforgettable visits!
