Know More about this tour

Salzburg and Lake District Day Trip (Day 1)
Meet your guide in central Munich and head southeast by comfortable coach to Salzburg. When you arrive after an approximate 2-hour drive, you have free time to explore the city on your own.

Walk Salzburgs charming streets; admire beautiful views of the Lower Bavarian Alps; wander around the picturesque old city; and see major attractions like Salzburg Cathedral, St Peters Abbey and Mozart Square. Enjoy lunch or drinks at a local restaurant (own expense), and discover famous sites from the classic movie The Sound of Music, such as the fountain in Mirabell Gardens where Julie Andrews and the Von Trapp children sing Do-Re-Mi.

Back on board your coach, leave Salzburg for Lake Wolfgangsee, one of the Lake Districts best-known lakes. Walk along the water and enjoy the beautiful scenery, or choose to take a boat ride (own expense) to a pilgrimage church and the lakeside town of St Wolfgang, where youll see the White Horse Inn, famous for being the setting of the early 1900s operetta The White Horse Inn.

During the return journey to Munich, pass by Lake Mondsee, which was used in several scenes from The Sound of Music.

Romantic Road, Harburg and Rothenburg Day Trip (Day 2)
The next day, leave Munich again by coach, this time heading north to the castles and medieval villages of Germanys renowned Romantic Road.

After an approximate 1.5-hour drive, your first stop is the small town of Harburg, home to one of the oldest, largest and best-preserved medieval castles Germany. Youll have free time here to explore the town however you wish.

Back on your coach, head to Rothenburg, driving through the Swabian crater landscape and past the town of Dinkelsbuhl. Rothenburg ob der Tauber, as its formally known, is one of the most perfectly preserved medieval towns in Europe, and youll have about three hours of free time here to sightsee, have lunch and shop, if you wish, at your own pace (all food and entrance fees at own expense).

Most of Rothenburgs top sights are centered around the Marktplatz, including the Town Hall with its Rothenburg History Museum, and St Jakob's Church, a Gothic building with soaring, light-filled ceilings. If youre a Christmas-lover, you may want to check out the open-year-round Kathe Wolhfahrt Christmas Store on Herrngasse, where you can purchase ornaments, nutcrackers and other holiday items.

You will return to Munich via the Hallertau, the world's largest hop-growing area.

    Great tour! Great way to see a lot in a couple of days! Loved Rothenburg!

    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.

    Salzburg and the Lake District were 10000 amazing. Overwhelmed by the beauty of Austria. I couldn't get enough. Romantic Road and Rothenburg were charming.

    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.

    Unfortunately we were caught up school holiday traffic and had to miss the boat trip included in trip to Salzburg.

    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.

    Salzburg was amazing the the lake district is magnificent. The romantic road was okay. The guides were good a bit talkative though. Didn't like that at the meeting point the staff are not helpful. The sings for the tours weren't clear!

    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

    It is a wonderful and relaxing trip. Beautiful sceneries all the way to Salzburg but the second day to Rothenburg was cloudy. However, the authentic feelings in Rothernburg due to the unique buildings offset the moodiness of the weather. We want to thank the tour guides Markus and Ingrid for their clear explanations and knowledges of the place. They are very friendly, helpful and humorous.
