Guided tour of Salzburg & Vienna
Thurs 5/21/2020  7:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Watch on Facebook!
Vacation from home, join Jeanne Schnupp for a guided tour of Salzburg & Vienna. For many Americans, the  Sound of Music  was our first introduction to Austria and especially the starring city of Salzburg. There is so much more to this country than its association with a Hollywood production. It was Marie Antoinette’s childhood playground and home base for the rulers of most of central Europe, the Hapsburgs and the Holy Roman Empire. Seventeenth century carillon chimes, trick fountains, imperial jewels and Roman ruins – so much packed into one country!
