Mozart, Salzburg is a must-to-visit city, as it is a birth place of the musician and there are a lot of sightseeings connected to this personality. During your free time, it is worth to dedicate a half of hour for Mozart’s museum. Besides, Sound of Music film’s fans will be able to see famous locations. It is also hard to imagine Salzburg without cathedrals, for instance, the seventeenth-century Baroque cathedral of Salzburg or St. Peter’s Cathedral. As mentioned above, in Salzburg there are modern sightseeings as well, for example, “The man on the golden ball” statue or “Five cucumbers” piece of art, which you will see on the Salzburg trip with a tour guide. Furthermore, do not forget to visit Hohensalzburg Castle when you will have free time and enjoy the magnificent view of the city.
Coming in Austria tourists are usually looking for traditional beer. Then Salzburg is the best place because the first brewery “Stiegl-Brauwelt” was opened in 1492 and it continues to produce beer till now. Moreover, in Salzburg, you may not only meet Austrians in traditional outfit on the streets but also buy this outfit in special shops.

The ErasBus team prepared an interesting city-game for groups (3-4 people) and the prize (50 Euro for the group). The task is to find nine places that are on the pictures you’ll receive and make photos near these places. So, playing the city-game you will explore Salzburg at the same time. Additionally, you’ll receive bonus points for recording a video, while all group members dance in public or for a photo with the member of ErasBus team. If you’re interested, join us!
