The Original Sound of Music Tour Salzburg , Hubert-Sattler-Gasse 1, 5020 Salzburg, Austria

Panorama Bus Terminal at Mirabell Platz, corner Hubert SatllerGasse 1

9:00 AM
This activity will end right where it started.
Your day trip will begin in central Salzburg’s Mirabellplatz, where you’ll join up with your guide and hop aboard your coach. Journey along the Salzach River Valley to the tiny village of Ramsau, located at the base of the Dachstein, an impressive Alpine mountain.

Upon arrival, relax with lunch at one of the local inns (own expense). Treat your taste buds to some of the region's specialty dishes, including apple strudel or the popular wiener schnitzel. Afterward, step out into the crisp air and head to the field where your horse-drawn sleigh will be waiting, decked out with jingle bells. Climb in and begin gliding across the snow as your horses take off for your adventure. Cozy up with supplied blankets from the carriage and, if you choose, stop midway to make snowballs or snowangels.

After your horse-drawn sled ride through the Alps concludes, you will be driven back to central Salzburg.

This was a great tour because of many reasons. Our tour guide Walter did a really good job. He provided a lot of information on the way to our destination in a funny and entertaining manner. The scenery itself was beautiful and although the snow was not as high as it would normally be, the views were still great. We throughly enjoyed the sleigh ride and then also the lunch in one of the restaurants. A really worthwhile trip. Thanks again Walter :-)

We had an amazing Christmas Day doing this tour. Our guide Daniel was fun, informative and really nice. The scenery was incredible and the sleigh ride everything you could imagine. Add to that powder soft snow, hot drinks and food and this tour was the ticket. Would highly recommend to anyone.

This was a gorgeous tour and beautiful way to spend Christmas Day. Snow had fallen the night before so the little skiing village was covered in snow. Riding in the sleigh through the snow, with the horse bells ringing was just magical. So worth it....one of the highlights of our trip

Sleigh Ride in the mountains

This trip was amazing. You take a motor coach ride up to the mountains, have lunch and time for shopping, then get on the sleighs and bundle up in the blankets and go for 2 hour ride. It is chilly but the blankets and the stop for a hot chocolate make it a fabulous adventure. It is a winner!!!

Epic Christmas Day
Teri_K

This was such a great thing to do on Christmas Day as we were far from home and family. It definitely put us in the Christmas spirit. Our host Daniel was very good with the right amount of stories and historical facts. The horses were beautiful and seemed to enjoy the ride as much as we did. The weather was so perfect as it had snowed the night before so it was a virtual winter wonderland.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the horse-drawn sleigh ride in December 2017. The joy of riding on the snow at Christmas time, under the warmth of the blanket, was one of the highlights of our trip to Salzburg. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough.

OMG - Breathtaking views. The bus trip to Ramsau was wonderful then seeing the horses and sleigh as we pulled into the parking lot was amazing. Our sleigh driver was very nice and helped us with a blanket, many times if checked to see if we needed anything to be more comfortable. He stopped several times to point out different photo ops and to let us play in the snow. One time we stopped for hot chocolate and he shared his mountain water. Anyone thinking about doing this ride should immediately book the trip. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about Austria. She made the bus ride interesting and even played special Austrian music for us on our way back to Salzburg. I will do this same excursion any time I am in Austria during the winter.

Lovely experience. Well organised, Pleasant Tour Leader Lisa. Plenty of snow and the scenery was spectular. Lunch break of 2 hours too long if you aren't intending to ski. Ski hire reasonably priced and efficiently organised. Would I do it again? You bet!

We did our sleigh ride on New Years Eve in brilliant sunshine, just as our guide - Walter - had promised. It was a wonderful experience, which we will never forget. There was snow as far as the eye could see and on our two hour sleigh ride we passed skiers, villages and chalets. The lunch break in the middle of the ride allowed us to warm up over a hot meal and catch up with some of the other sleigh-riders. Thanks to Walter and all his associates for making this the highlight of our trip to Austria.
