What to expect

You will meet your guide in Mirabellplatz, right in the heart of Salzbourg. The activity is available only during December-March, in order to enjoy a snow-covered wonderland, as adorable as the one inside a snow globe. Once the group has been gathered and the introduction to Salzbourg has been made, you will be headed towards Augustinen Brau, the largest “Bräustübl” tavern and brewery in Austria, where you will taste regional beers drawn from wooden barrels. Without doubt, a true encounter with the Austrian culture is not complete without a traditional gluhwein and snaps tasting, served in open air within one of the Austrian Markets.

Additionally, after admiring the exquisite and historical buildings from Mozart’s time, the group will move towards the Mozart Residence, where the artist lived from 1773-1780, leaving behind a museum documenting the Mozart family and the live of the well-known musician. To continue with, you will explore the Belgian culture of beer within one of the few authentic Belgian taverns in Austria (where, trust us, people are queuing to get in).

Transit in time and space and arrive in Brussels whilst tasting a range of typical Belgian beers. You should not worry about the flavours of the beer! Even if beer is not your thing, we’ll make sure to find one that is adequate for your tastes – otherwise, you will be offered wine or any other drink instead. Neither you have to worry about your stomach: complementary snacks will be offered along the beers, such as cheese, sausages and even chocolate). After absorbing Austrian and Belgian culture alike for 5h, your tour will conclude at its original departure point, where you can continue your evening or buy souvenirs.
