Salzburg Tourism Guide:
A city without any comparisons, Salzburg blends timeless classics such as a musical heritage with Mozart as the keynote; expertly preserved architectural marvels from eras past that have given Salzburg City Centre the distinction of a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and a virgin countryside that is best explored in leisure. A holiday here lets you unravel new facets of Austria with almost every step.
Music is the very soul of Salzburg; this is the city, where the musical genius Mozart was born, lived and nurtured his musical talents. Experience the musical notes of Salzburg with a concert at the Mozarteum; a tour of Mozart’s Birthplace and Mozart’s Residence; or a Sound of Music Tour that traces the footsteps of the Von Trapp family as they waltz through Salzburg’s picturesque gardens singing Do-re-mi.
Explore the sights that render Salzburg an idyllic picture postcard look: Hohensalzburg Castle, an 11th century unconquered and largest, fully preserved fortress in Central Europe; the Salzburg Castle with its towering domes that dominate the city skyline; and the Mirabell Palace, a 17th century palace with magnificent gardens and a Marble Hall that is now a venue for civil weddings.
Venture into the Salzburg Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with cobbled stone pathways, architectural masterpieces from across the ages – Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Romanesque, eclectic dining and entertainment venues and myriad shops for your fantasies. A stroll through the Old Town, a majorly pedestrian-only venue, is the best way to experience and revel in Salzburg’s Old Town charm.
Nature lovers will find that the mountains and lush countryside is never too far from the city centre. A short trip is all it takes for a marvellous getaway in the surrounding mountains; hike and bike; enjoy a scenic ride, paraglide and in winters, enjoy some cross-country skiing on Gaisberg Peak and surrounds. The largest ice caves in the world, the Ice Caves in Werfen, are also within easy reach and are a good option for excursions or daytrips from Salzburg,
