Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions

Your expert, English-speaking private guide will meet you in Mozart Square by the colossal bronze statue of the man himself – Salzburg’s musical hero. From here you will embark on a three hour walking and food tasting tour of the city. You’ll learn all about Salzburg’s history, culture, architecture, and famous personalities, all while tasting traditional Austrian food – from casual stand-up street food snacks to formal sit-down meals, with local wine and beer included too. (Or non-alcoholic drinks if you prefer).

Visit the lively outdoor market and enjoy a hearty, classic Austrian sausage and beer. Meet the local street food vendors and soak up the friendly atmosphere of this traditional Austrian food market.

Step inside a lovely, cozy traditional pub to enjoy a traditional beer and pretzel. Then explore the quaint and cobbled streets of Salzburg, that open up onto magnificent baroque squares as you head to your next stop for something sweet. At an independent traditional artisanal bakery shop you will get to try a pastry or sweet bread.

Another stroll through the Old City’s lanes will take us to a wonderful, warm, and welcoming restaurant where we will sit down to enjoy traditional dumplings or a dish called Stern Bräu – mouth-watering roasted pork with dumplings accompanied by a glass of beer or wine.

By this time you’ll be feeling pretty full with hearty Austrian fare, but there is time for one more stop at an historic venue run by the same family for several generations. Here you’ll finish the tour with a delicious sweet treat called Mozartkugel the Mozart Ball. This was invented in 1890 by master confectioner Paul Furst, and named after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Salzburg’s musical hero. It is a delicious round confection consisting of pistachio, marzipan, and nougat and covered with dark chocolate. A rich, elegant and tasty finish to a very satisfying three hours!
