Meet the Ritz Tours family


Noted for its Alpine settings, the city of Salzburg is the fourth largest city in Austria and is located near the German border. Its "Old Town" is famous for the baroque architecture and is one of the best preserved city centers north of the Alps. Salzburg is home to a large student population due to its three universities. The city is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and was the setting for parts of the film "The Sound of Music."


Hohensalzburg Fortress

Sitting atop Festungsberg mountain, the Hohensalzburg Fortress is one of the largest medieval castles in Europe and offers incredible views of Salzburg and the Alps. To arrive at the fortress, one can hike up or take a funicular for a fee.

Schloss Mirabell

The Mirabell Palace is located next to the Salzach River and features beautiful gardens that are adorned with marble statues, reflecting pools, fountains, and a natural theater. The garden was shown in some famous scenes from "The Sound of Music." Inside the palace, one can find the Marble Hall, a beautiful wedding hall.

Mozart s Geburtshous (Mozart s Birth House)

This museum houses many of the belongings of the Mozart family, who lived in this house from 1747-1773.

Schloss Hellbrunn

The Hellbrunn Palace was a summer day residence for the Archbishops of Salzburg. Since the Archbishop must return back to Salzburg in the evening, there are no bedrooms in the palace. The palace is famous for its beautiful gardens and clever fountains. These "water games" are practical jokes that were played on the palace s visitors to get them wet. All the fountains have one area that does not get wet, and this is where the Archbishop would stand or sit. Today, this area is taken by the tour guide so stand next to him/her if you want to stay dry.
