What you'll do

I introduce you to my city. The history, the customs, what i think and like about my city, where the locals go and what the locals do. I aim on getting to know you and your interests to guide you to the places that suit you best. We meet next to Staatsbrücke, the main bridge and a central place in the old town. First we stay on the right side of the river to explore Mirabell garden, Mirabell castle and some lesser known yet not less charming places around Linzergasse. Then we pass by our meeting point again to cross the river to the historic heart of the city. We see Mozarts birthplace while walking the famous shopping street, Getreidegasse, learn about the University and the importance of horses in history, before we take an elevator up the mountain. After enjoying the stunning views and taking pictures we hike down to take a traditional snack at a sausage stand, walk by the concert hall and the monastery of Saint Peters and visit Salzburg Cathedral to understand why Salzburg is also called the Rome of the North. From the Cathedral we cross residence square to visit the Mozart Statue. Thats where our tour ends, you get answers to all your pending questions and go on exploring.

I am a guide. I introduce my city and its history. But really? I like to welcome people and make them feel at home. I like to walk them through hidden alleys and secret corners. I got into tourism in 2012 after long travels. I rediscovered my city by getting in touch with its visitors. As a bike taxi tour guide and at hostels i made hospitality my passion and history my life. In 2018 I became a certified guide and now have the freedom to take you where ever we want. What i offer is a tour, tailored to your interests. From food to history to shopping to local life. We tailore as we go.

Where you'll be

We are going to explore the oldtown of Salzburg as well as some less visited sights. Main tourist attractions like the cathedrale, the concert hall, Getreidegasse and residence square are of course included. But we are also going to explore some smaller alleys, hidden places and hear secret stories. I will introduce you to my favorite restaurant, typical austrian street food, the best coffee shops and the places where the locals hang out.
