I did the all day excursion to Salzburg which included a visit to Lake Mondee which is where the interior church for the Sound of Music wedding was filmed. Seeing the Austrian lake AND touring Salzburg AND a small tour of Linz when we returned to the ship made this a great day.

We took the full day Salzburg excursion that also stopped in Mondsee and finished with a walking tour of Linz. I would highly recommend the full day Salzburg tour. We arrived on a Sunday and many in the town were dressed in beautiful lederhosen and dirndls.
The Long Version of Salzburg - very quaint town. Great street food and gingerbread cookies.

This was by far my favorite port! A spectacular city with a colorful history and amazing sites and restaurants. The only issue was our hotel room at the Hotel Bristol. We were two individuals (not a couple) and the room was set up with a double bed. When we asked them to move the bed into two, they simply separated the beds by 6 inches. It was a very tiny room and we could not both open our suitcases at the same time. They moved us to another room, but again it was not suited for two individuals. The couple we traveled with (with the same level of cabin and same price) had a huge room and were provided with chocolate treats each night. They moved us to yet another room, and although not as nice as our travel partners, was slightly better than the first two options. The breakfast at Hotel Bristol was absolutely diving. The hotel location was perfect. We participated in the included excursions. Veronica, our tour guide and a life-long resident provided immense historical information and her own story and definitely kept our interest throughout the two days. Two of us took advantage of the Salzburg card to see additional sites in the city. Fabulous! I would love to visit there again. The Sound of Music tour was definitely a highlight. Veronica provided some real history of the Von Trapp family as well to contrast with the movie version.

We visited this town on a Sunday and everything was closed. Sadly,we didn’t get the opportunity to explore very much.

Cesky Krumlov was definitely a diamond in the rough. Silva, our tour guide, provided interesting historical information about this medieval town and castle. We had spectacular views of the Alps and the city and villages below.

Took a city tour to Salzburg. It was actually snowing in May the day we toured, so it was quite cold. Regardless of the cold, we enjoyed hearing about the history the city and about the von Trapp Family (and subsequent movie - Sound of Music filmed there). Almost every store was closed on Sunday. We enjoyed a nice lunch in a warm restaurant.
We opted for the Cesky-Krumlov tour: amazing!
