Salzburg City of Mozart
Holidays in the city of Mozart
Salzburg enjoys a unique reputation in all of Europe, which it has done for several centuries. No less a figure than Alexander von Humboldt described it as one of the three most beautiful cities in the world. Anyone who ever strolls along the banks of the Salzach and gazes across at the churches, domes and towers of the Old City, is hardly likely to contradict him.
No matter what the season, Salzburg reveals a captivating charm all its own. In springtime and summer, the abundant greenery of the city radiates a pure love for life. While the autumn takes on a more melancholy air, the winters here are in a class of their own – not merely because of the many nearby ski areas. No matter what time of year you come here: It is always rewarding.
Sights in Salzburg
Large areas of the Old City are listed UNESCO World Heritage sites. The many churches and squares beneath the shadow of the mighty fortress are interspersed with narrow lanes and charming "through-houses". And so, a walking tour of the city, whether as part of a guided tour or on your own, is bound to be a memorable adventure, with so many things to discover along the way. Exquisite boutiques, jewelry and fashion shops can also be found on the world-famous Getreidegasse and, on the far side of the river, in the Linzergasse. Learn more about the highlights and shopping opportunities.
Culture, Theatre, Festivals
Even long before Mozart, Salzburg was a city of music. Today, Salzburg's festivals (Salzburg Festival, Easter Festival and Whitsuntide Festival) are the clearest indicator of that legacy and are amongst the world's best. But that is far from all ... Read more about Cultural Salzburg.
