The cruise starts at the Makart Bridge in Salzburg's historic city center and continues on a leisurely 8-kilometer cruise along Salzburg's magnificent cityscape towards Hellbrunn with a view of the stunning mountain ranges in the Salzburg Province and back (Tour I) or proceeds a few minutes longer to the Hellbrunn pier, where the historical London Double Decker Bus takes visitors to the enchanting baroque palace in Hellbrunn with its world-famous trick fountains and the charming pavilion from the movie "Sound of Music" (Tour II).

A further highlight is Tour III which includes, in addition to the boat cruise and the 4-minutes-drive with the historical London Double Decker Bus, also a visit of the world-famous trick fountains as well as the Castle Hellbrunn.
