Free Walking Tour Salzburg

Take a free tour of Salzburg. The city of Mozart and stunning architecture!

Free Salzburg Walking Tour

Gerhard, a native Salzburger, founded the first Free Walking Tour Company in his hometown in 2018 after working there as a Rikscha driver and in Hostels for many years. Because the license for walking tours in Austria requires three semesters of education, the Free Walking Tour Salzburg is mostly a one-person show but tries to run at least a tour a day.

The Free Tour of Salzburg is designed to introduce you to the city. Salzburg is small. Therefore, we pass by the most famous sights on a 1,5 hours walk. During these 1,5 hours, I love to share stories, answer questions, recommend places to eat, and offer ideas of things to see and do.

Furthermore, I provide a custom printed city map, including essential information for the rest of your stay in Salzburg and postcards you can send home to your loved ones.

What visitors think about Free Salzburg Walking Tour?

Gerhard was the perfect local tour guide and gave us a very personalized tour of his home town. He also took us through back streets, showed us points of interest that we wouldn’t have noticed otherwise and put history in context.
Best possible way to spent your time when visiting Salzburg. Gerhard is a very nice and knowledgeable guide. He speaks with joy and passion and has an answer to every question. Furthermore, he even made a little map of all the best spots to visit in Salzburg. Thank you Gerhard!

Gerhard was a great tour guide, I learned a lot about the history of Salzburg and he had many interesting facts to share about buildings and sights I would not have known from just walking around on my own! He also provides a map with recommendations for food, bars, coffee etc. which was a nice touch.

Frequently asked questions about the tour

What will we see during the Free Walking Tour Salzburg?

We start the tour on the right side of the river where we pass by Mozart's residence and take a look at Mirabell Garden before crossing the river to walk along Getreidegasse, visit the Salzburg University and the Concerthall, find out where Salzburg was founded, take a look at the cathedral and finish the tour at Residence Square and the Mozart statue.

How do I find the Free Tour meeting point and the guide?

The meeting point for the Free Walking Tour Salzburg is at the Spirit of Mozart Artwork by Marina Abramovic. The artwork is a 15-meter high metal chair with eight regular chairs next to Staatsbrücke, the main bridge, and a central location to start our exploration. Your guide doesn't have an umbrella but will be at the meeting point 15 minutes in advance, and the meeting point never gets crowded, therefore finding the guide is no problem.

Do I have to book the Free Walking Tour Salzburg in advance?

Our groups are limited to a maximum of 20-25 participants, reservations are required. Bookings for the Free Walking Tour in Salzburg starts seven days in advance.

How many people can I bring on the Free Tour of Salzburg?

The Free Walking Tour is for independent travelers. Therefore, because of the limit of no more than 25 participants per tour, you would have to book a private tour if there are six or more people in your group.

Do tours get canceled due to bad weather?

Salzburg is known for being the city with the most rainfall in Austria, and Austrian winters are freezing cold and long, but we have never had to cancel a tour due to bad weather. Once the whole group had to stop in a café because the rain was too heavy, but we finally continued the tour.
