Salzburg, Austria. During Mozart Week 2018.

Lovely Salzburg stands on the border of Germany in the shadows of the Eastern Alps. The Salzach River bisects the city, with medieval and Baroque buildings of the Altstadt (Old Town) on its left bank, and the 19th-century Neustadt (New Town) on its right.

     Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born here, and these days Salzburg is home to the annual Mozart Week celebration. If you love classical music, don’t miss it.

     In 2018, Mozart Week runs in Salzburg from 26 January until 4 February.

Pre-Tour or Post-Tour Option

Before or after your visit to Salzburg, we stroinglky recommend a visit just around the corner to magnificent Vienna, Austria.

     In 1857, Emperor Francis Joseph tore down the wall that once enclosed the city of Vienna and replaced it with the wide Ringstrasse (Ring Street). Leopold IV extended the city limits to today’s Ringstrasse and took up residence at the site of the present Hofburg complex. Today the Ringstrasse is Vienna’s main boulevard, lined with famous buildings.

     On a drive, see the State Opera House, the Museum of Fine Arts & Natural History, Hofburg Palace, Parliament, City Hall, the University of Vienna (founded in 1365), and Votiv Church.

     If you’d like, opt for time in the Museum of Fine Arts to see outstanding works by Dutch and Flemish painters from the 17th century, including Rubens, Rembrandt, van Dyck, Hieronymus Bosch, and Titian.

     At the Austrian Gallery at Upper Belvedere Palace, view the very heart of the collections, Gustav Klimt’s golden masterpieces, “The Kiss” and “Judith.”

     Spend time in historic Stephansdom (St. Stephan’s Cathedral). Though it now marks the heart of today’s Vienna, it stood outside the city walls when it was built in the mid-12th century. 

Take a guided tour of the Albertina Museum, just inside the Ringstrasse. One of the world’s great collections of graphic arts awaits—prints, engravings, and drawings by the old masters. Among the treasures here are works by Dürer, da Vinci, Delacroix, Michelangelo, Rubens, and many others.

     Don't miss the magnificent staterooms of Schönbrunn Palace. Designed in 1696, the palace was a favoerite summer getaway for the Habsburgs. Enter its ornate chambers, including the Hall of Mirrors, where a six-year-old Mozart played for Empress Maria Theresa. See the Grand Gallery, where the Congress of Vienna sliced up Napoléon’s fallen empire in 1815.

     A short walk away, settle into a café to enjoy a strudel-baking demonstration. Afterwards, of course, there’s time to kibitz over coffee and apple strudel.

     Other suggestions in the city? If you love history, visit the Sisi Museum, which compares myths and facts about Empress Elizabeth. The Leopold Collection houses a modern Austrian art collection. Is music your thing? Take time on your own at Haus der Musik, an interactive museum in the heart of Vienna. Another possibility? Head for the Spanish Riding School to see the famous Lippizaners in action. And there's the Vienna Boys Choir...

     Pricing: Please speak to an R. Crusoe travel specialist for details and pricing information.
