you guessed, it The Sound of Music
An adventure in Salzburg, Austria was the breathtaking and fun things. Salzburg has repeatedly been chosen as Austria’s most bicycle-friendly city. Joining up on the Fräulein Maria’s Bicycle Tour was the perfect way to visit the sites and film locations from The Sound of Music movie. The opportunity to explore Mozart’s city and all its 49 churches, squares, palaces, fountains and attractions by bike was incredible!
Our bike tour was bright and early, right outside of Mirabell Square. Our route lead from Mirabell Square through the Mirabell Gardens, the Horse Pond, crosses St. Peter’s Cemetery to Nonnberg Convent, on to Leopoldskron Palace, to the Frohnburg and through the beautiful Hellbrunn Avenue to Hellbrunn Palace and back to the city in 4 hours. We avoided large, busy roads and we got to know the city of Salzburg.
Salzburg is a must-see! The city is beautiful and a bike tour was the most exceptional was to experience Salzburg in a new view. My experience of Salzburg was far different than most people’s. We saw the quiet and gentle side, mixed with the hustle and bustle of the city. Biking down the ancient streets of Salzburg, made me realize how beautiful this city truly is. We had the opportunity to grab a beer at one of the oldest breweries, ate at the oldest bakery in Europe, and really enjoyed the scenery. If you are heading to Salzburg, I would absolutely recommend the bike tour, with such a great way to explore the city–you can’t go wrong.
Now as I have been talking about The Sound of Music, I am sure you’ve been singing this to yourself the whole time, so enjoy:
