  3. The Sound of Music Tour

Remember Maria twirling and singing on an alpine pasture in the famous movie "The Sound of Music"? It is SalzburgerLand that comes to mind almost immediately.

As the name suggests, the rich salt mines are central to Salzburg's identity and riches, since they allowed it to remain an independent state for quite a long time. Salzburg, the baroque capital, is the place for culture lovers. After all Mozart was born here and lived here for many years. 

However the countryside has an enjoyable bucolic charm all its own. On your tour of the region we suggest to stop out in the lovely lake resort Zell am See or the breathtaking gorge and waterfall at Liechtensteinklamm. Not to mention Europe's hightest waterfall in Krimml or the Giant Ice Caves.
