Embark on this optional tour of Salzburg, a jewel of a city nestled in the Austrian Alps. The famed birthplace of Mozart and the site where The Sound of Music was filmed, this city is teeming with charm. On a walking tour of the Old Town, also recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you’ll see many fine examples of notable architecture and learn the history of this picturesque town.
Set off on this optional tour to Schönbrunn Palace, a grand baroque edifice with a rich history dating back to the 16th century. The place has an impressive 1,441 rooms (though only 40 are open to vistors) and was an imperial summer palace for the Habsburg dynasty. With a history and grandeur that more than justifies its UNESCO World Heritage Site status, this is an excellent spot to visit during your time in Vienna.
Following an hour-long motorcoach ride through the beautiful Bohemian countryside, you will reach the stunning town of Kutná Hora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Established near the area’s rich silver mines, the town ultimately became the second most important town in the Kingdom of Bohemia after Prague. During this great excursion, you will see all of the key medieval and baroque monuments, including the former central royal mint, the interior of St. Barbara’s Cathedral, and the nearby Ossuary — famous for its elaborate decorations made out of human bones!
A scenic journey back in time, into the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, takes you to the medieval UNESCO World heritage village of Hollókő. Here life follows the same patterns it did centuries ago — the houses are built in a medieval style with whitewashed walls and red-tiled roofs, and the locals still honor age-hold customs and dress in traditional embroidered clothing on special occasions — such as your arrival! You'll be greeted with singing, dancing, and a snack of Hungarian cheesecake. Then, in small groups, we'll be invited into a home for lunch — a truly wonderful way to meet people of Hungary. Afterwards, you'll take a walking tour through the village's cobbled streets.
