Driving along Lake Fuschl and Lake Wolfgang, you will arrive in Salzburg, where you will have free time for lunch.



Discover Salzburg in the afternoon with a walk through the Old Town. Your guide will show you the most important sites of the Old Bishop's Square, including the Cathedral, the Palais des Festivals, the Abbey Church of Saint-Pierre and its cemetery (the tomb of Sister Nannerl Mozart).

Among the shopping streets, you will see number 9. Getreidegasse, where the famous Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born and lived until he was 17 years old.

Passing through the gardens of the Palais Mirabel, you can see the Pegasus statue, the winged horse, and maybe the song "Do-Re-Mi" in the movie The Sound of Music will come to mind?
