Picturesque Salzburg at the foot of the Austrian Alps is a superb destination for Music themed school tours, as the birthplace of one of the world’s most prolific composers Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the backdrop to the story of Maria and the Von Trapp family in The Sound of Music.
On this school trip to Salzburg students will get to explore this cultured city of elegant Baroque buildings and spectacular alpine backdrops, visiting its main attractions including the impressive fortress, the Cathedral and Mozart’s home.
The group will also embark on a musical journey following in the footsteps of the Von Trapp family on The Sound of Music tour, visiting the most iconic filming locations of this Hollywood classic.
And did you know the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site we see today was built on the success and riches of the salt trade?
Students will get to learn if they are worth their salt, once known as ‘white gold’, at the Hallein Salt Mine which is one of the oldest in the world.
