Returns to original departure point
This sightseeing tour of the Bavarian heartland and Salzburg begins in central Munich. Meet and greet the tour guide and hop on board the air-conditioned coach. It’s a 2-hour drive east to the Austrian city of Salzburg, the birthplace of Mozart and setting for the film the Sound of Music.

Explore the city at leisure, with stunning views of the Lower Bavarian Alps, visiting such landmarks as Salzburg Cathedral, perhaps the city's most significant piece of church architecture; St. Peter’s Abbey, a Benedictine monastery; and Mozartplatz, or Mozart Square, large courtyard in the heart of old town Salzburg dedicated to composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Also see the fountain at Mirabell Palace, well known for its appearance in the classic movie the Sound of Music.

After lunch at a local restaurant (own expense), travel to nearby Lake Wolfgangsee. Walk along the lake and admire the scenery or take a boat ride (own expense) on the lake to see the Maria Plain Pilgrimage Church and the White Horse Inn, from the 1900s operetta of the same name.

On the return trip to Munich, see Lake Mondsee, another famous site from the Sound of Music.

The second day of the tour begins again in central Munich. Board the coach for a 1.5-hour journey, heading north on the Romantic Road to the village of Harburg. Explore this small town, highlighted by Harburg Castle, one of the most impressive remaining medieval castles in Germany.

Then board the coach for a trip to the picturesque town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Rothenburg, also known as the Jewel of the Middle Ages, is widely believed to be the most well-preserved medieval old town in all of Germany.

Take approximately three hours to explore the town at leisure, do some shopping and enjoy lunch at a traditional German restaurant. Stroll through the town’s winding, cobbled lanes. See the half-timbered houses, the Renaissance Town Hall and the almost fairy tale appearance of the majestic town gates that welcome Rothenburg’s many visitors from near and far. Some of the local sites to see are St. Jakob's Church, the most important church in Rothenburg, or the Medieval Crime Museum (Mittelalterliches Kriminalmuseum), with its vast collection of exhibits detailing more than 1,000 years of German and European legal history.

The tour ends with a return trip to Munich.

Great Way To See Austria/Germany
broadwaygirlie12
, Oct 2018
Both of these day tours were conducted by Gray Line tours. The meeting place was very easy to find and well organized. Like many reviewers, these tours were transportation, not guided. The guide shared history, itineraries and critical information abt meeting points and times during the bus trip; however, once you arrived, you were on your own. I would recommend plotting out a list of sites that you would like to see. For example, in Salzburg, I researched the love lock bridge, mozart, mirabell gardens, etc. Have your personal itinerary ready to go! In Austria, the boat tour is not optional as the bus drops you at one of the lake and picks up on the other side. Overall, this was a nice alternative if you dont feel like navigating the train system independently. I did not leave disappointed, but rather a taste of the cities had to offer.

Kelly L

The Salzburg trip was so bad on the first day that we chose to lose out on our money and not go on the second day tour to the Romantic Road that we had already paid for. The tour guide talked non-stop for the entire trip over a very loud PA system. Some of the information was ok, but most of it was for the sake of talking. The drive was way too long for her to talk the entire time. When we got to Salzburg, she announced over the loud speaker that she could tell by looking at some of us when we got on the bus, that we were out of shape and that those people should take the shuttle into town instead of walking with her. She handed all of us a bad map, and sent us on our own for 3 hours. I feel like we wasted 3 hours because we didn't know where to really go. When we got to the Lake District, I wasn't feeling well, but was forced off of the bus to hang out in the cold and rain for an hour we didn't get the opportunity to go on the boat ride due to the bad weather. I could understand making me get off of the bus if the bus wasn't staying in the same location, but it was parked there the whole time. We were both very disappointed with this tour, and wish we had taken the train tour to Salzburg instead, we had heard from others that that was a much nicer tour.

I booked the dual trip. I am giving one star for the Salzburg portion, but would give four or five stars to the Rothenburg portion. The Salzburg portion was with a guide that delivered commentary in both Spanish and English. I was unaware two languages would be spoken. The reason this is an issue is that she would speak for five minutes in Spanish and then deliver information in English. Often that meant by the time she spoke in English, the relevant points of interest were no longer there. Also, as I understand quite a bit of Spanish, I realized she did not deliver all the same information in English. I felt short-changed on the info. She was also not very concerned about the issue and told me I could leave the trip and take a train back. I decided to leave the trip after Salzburg and took the train back to Munich. I would recommend that people just take the train to Salzburg and take a tour there rather than dealing with this type of situation. Several other people were clearly upset by the situation too. The Romantic Road and Rothenburg tour was very nice. I would learned more that day about Mozart than the trip to Salzburg. The castle and the town were both great. I would highly recommend this tour. There was ample time to explore Rothenburg on my own, which was appreciated.

Having completed the Munich Super Saver tours, we my family and I total 5 people can honestly say that it was a satisfactory, but not great, experience. First of all, the enduring back-to-back bus rides took a lot of time from visiting Munich... the day trip to Salzburg was disappointing in that we only had a couple of hours in Salzburg itself... having to make time for a trip to the lake, which took up the entire afternoon for a brief 30 minute boat ride... Salzburg deserved more time, especially since one could have taken the train there in less than an hour and a half, spend 6 hours to fully appreciate this beautiful city, and return to Munich in late afternoon. The second day trip was somewhat better... It was a long bus journey along the Romantic Road, and the stopover at Harburg was understandable... although the castle very plain was detached from the city, which did not allow for those not visiting the castle to wander through the streets of its city. However, once we had arrived at the beautiful city of Rothenburg, we were given only a short time to visit and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in this enchanting city... only to return to Munich much earlier than stated: 6:30 P.M. rather than 8:00 P.M. We could have easily spent another hour in Rothenburg. Overall, my family and I thought the overall organisation was good, and both the drivers and the guides were very polite and professional.

Scott J
, Jul 2017
We loved visiting Salzburg, Rothenburg and Wolfgang. The locations visited were stunning. The challenge was the tour group size 79 and one assigned guide. It was a challenge to keep everyone on schedule. It was also difficult to hear our guide. She definitely attempted to ensure we all could hear her. The tour left 30 minutes late a family didn't bring their passports. This delay, combined with traffic left us with only 90 minutes in Salzburg. Certainly not enough time to see the beauty of the city. The rest of the afternoon in the Lake District was beautiful. The Rothenburg trip was spectacular! The city is beautiful with ample time to enjoy the town. Please remember to bring your passport when taking the tour outside of Germany- the bus was stopped and all travelers had to show passports when entering back from Austria.

The Salzburg and Lake District is what drives this rating down Salzburg portion is totally misleading we had just over one hour in Salzburg no guide because she was not Austrian approved No time to do any thing if not for Lake District would have been total loss had more time on lake than Salzburg This tour should not list Salzburg as option due to traffic and crossing the border as interest must have passport so we had to run to hotel to get passport needs to show as required in booking info If going to Salzburg take train tour option The Romantic Road option was outstanding Great guide and worth the money If I could have found someone to complain to I would have requested a refund for the Salzburg portion This was our worst experience with Viator as the Salzburg write up was totally misleading
