FITNESS / PRACTICALITIES
This tour involves a significant amount of walking to our daytime visits and concert venues, however this is mainly over flat ground, some of which is within the pedestrian zone of Salzburg. While this makes for a relaxing overall experience, participants should be aware of the amount of walking as well as the possibility of snow and ice at this time of the year. Some terrain is cobbled. Participants should have a good overall level of fitness.
