We start the event with a Welcome Breakfast at the resort with our Big Journey Tour Director. There will be time to meet your fellow members and to discuss the plans for the days ahead.
No visit to this region of Austria would be complete unless you have visited the fairytale city of Salzburg. Not only the birthplace of Mozart, it is best known from the film, “Sound of Music”. Many scenes from the movies were filmed in Salzburg and the real Trapp family once lived here. On our guided tour we will visit several film locations, both in and outside of the city.
There will be time for lunch at leisure before enjoying the rest of the day to explore the city further at leisure. Hohensalzburg Fortress, located on a hilltop overlooking the city, it is one of the largest medieval castles in Europe and contains many museums as well as affording lovely views back down over Salzburg. It can be reached on foot or by means of the Fortress Funicular. Alternatively, at Mozart's Birthplace Museum you can learn about his life, when he began to play music, his passion for opera, and much more.
We will return to the resort where the rest of the day and evening is at leisure.
