Stroll around charming side streets where classical music outflows from open windows, have a coffee and delicious cake in a decadent coffee house and let Salz-burg slowly work its magic on you.

  • Day 10: Salzburg – Munich

Buffet Breakfast. The Old City is picturesquely surrounded by the Mönchsberg, crowned by the Fortress which is visible for miles, and the mighty Capuchin Mountain on the right banks of the river. Salzburg

residents find the term "mountain" slightly exaggerated since both of the city's mountains have extensive walking paths to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a few hours. A mountain walk is very worthwhile since it affords one of the loveliest panoramic "postcard views" of the city.

 

Later make your own way to the station to board the rain from Salzburg to Munich. On arrival make your own way to the hotel and check in. Rest of the day at leisure to explore the city your own. Munich, the gateway to the German Alps, is famous for its mix of traditional Bavarian culture & modern living. Contemporary architecture goes hand in hand with grand avenues, first-class museums, and baroque palaces. They are a tribute to Munich’s royal past: Bavaria was ruled for more than 750 years by kings of Wittelsbach Dynasty. Munich's cuisine is often regarded as quintessentially German, all washed down with beer. Munich’s two main pedestrian shopping streets are right in the center of its Old Town.
