Explore the city by bus with famous sights beginning at the Mirabell Palace. Travel to see the Mozarteum (University of Music), Marionette Theatre and Church of the Holy Trinity before experiencing a short break outside of Hellbrunn Palace. Finally you will admire the Palace of Frohnburg, Nonnberg Abbey, Siegmund‘s Gate, Festival Halls, Horse Bath, Getreidegasse and Blasius Church where your tour will end in Mozartplatz.

Be enchanted by the “Land of Music," travelling through Hof and Fuschl in the Lakes region. Explore the grounds of St. Gilgen (the birthplace of Mozart’s mother) during a brief stop, before continuing to the nearby village of St. Wolfgang.

Here you will discover the beauty of this town, plus see a local church with its famous and unique 15th century raised altar by Michael Pacher. See the Weiße Rössl Hotel, the well-known setting for the famous operetta “Im Weißen Rössl” by Wolfgang and enjoy picturesque scenes during the return trip as you pass by Lake Krottensee, Hüttenstein Castle and the shoreline of Lake Mondsee.
