Salzburg is a beautiful city and full of not only historical tourist spots but also the filming locations for the movie, "The Sound of Music." Some of these places to visit are located quite a ways from the city center.

Sure, one could take a bus or hire a cab but, bike riding is so much fun and in Salzburg they make it very easy. Bike lanes are well-marked on the city streets and there are a lot of places to secure your bike while you sightsee.

The Leopoldskron & Schloss Hellbrunn, two of the more popular filming locations for "Sound of Music" can be reached via beautiful tree-lined lanes. Biking in Salzburg means always taking the scenic route.

Ask at your hotel if they rent bikes. A lot of them do.
