From Mozart to Prince Archbishops, Salzburg’s varied history contains so much more than the Sound of Music stereotypes that characterize it.
Born from a salt mine that catapulted this small city to international fame, Salzburg’s story is a rich glimpse into Austrian culture. Its breathtaking setting is home to the birthplace of Mozart, the beautifully Baroque Mirabell Palace, layered World War II history, and the remarkably preserved Salzburg Fortress. Experience scenic Salzburg with Context's private and small group guided tours.
Salzburg Private Tours and Salzburg Small Group Tours
We’ve put together a spread of Salzburg private and small group guided tours to pique the interests of our curious clientele. Feeling peckish? Then we invite you to savor sweet treats on our Salzburg Food Tour, tasting everything from Mozart chocolate to marillen (apricot) schnapps. Looking for an in-depth examination of the movie "The Sound of Music" and the history behind the Von Trapps? We dig a bit deeper into what was going on during the time of the movie, the (un)importance the film holds in Austria and the natural force of the lakes. Our Sound of Music Tour is well suited for delving into this renowned 1960s musical hit, allowing guests to not only bask in some of Austria's most stunning landscapes but to appreciate the film more deeply from the perspective of Austrian culture.

Igor was fantastic. He was patient, personable and a wealth of knowledge not only about the Sound of Music put the history of Salzburg. He made sure I didn’t miss a thing. Thank you for a day that I will remember forever. A true childhood dream came true, and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better than Igor.

David was an excellent tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and passionate about Salzburg, it's history, it's economy, it's people. He was so easy and fun to be with as he showed us some special gems in the area. We would highly recommend David!
