EXPERIENCE THE ENCHANTING CITY OF CASTLES AND CHURCHES
Set against a backdrop of stunning, snow-capped Alps, Salzburg will transport you back in time with its historic churches and dreamy castles. Known as the birthplace of Mozart and the setting for the beloved film The Sound of Music, the city is divided by the fast-flowing Salzach River whose left bank hosts Old Town, a unique UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its baroque architecture. Take in the history by visiting the seventeenth-century Salzburg Cathedral, or climb up to the stunning Hohensalzburg Castle, one of the largest medieval castles in Europe.
Outside the old town, the lush gardens of Mirabell Palace offer an invigorating place for an afternoon stroll, while the side alleys of Linzergasse Lane boast the best handicrafts and wallet-friendly restaurants in town. For panoramic views of the scenic Alpine surroundings, venture out to the beautiful Untersberg peak just outside the city.
