The world-famous city of Mozart is only an hour away by car. We also recommend an extremely pleasant train trip through the beautiful region of Pongau to visit cultural hot spots along the Salzach river. A fine selection of delicacies to both see and taste are available with the practical Salzburg Card.
Stroll through the old town of Salzburg and take in the sights before you: the Residence, carillon, cathedral, Franciscan church, Mozart square, horse pond, Hofstallgasse, Hohensalzburg fortress and St. Peter´s Monastery. Around every corner is a glimpse of past centuries: time has left its traces in the churches, towers, facades, balustrades and galleries. The street names often tell tales of events and people from a former era.
Numerous castles invite to walk through the city and surrounding area: Mirabell Palace where countless weddings are performed in the marble hall; its garden is one of the most photographed motives in Salzburg.
Excellent galleries and museums such as the Rupertinum, Mozart’s birthplace, Mozart’s dwelling, the Salzburg museum, the cathedral museum, the baroque museum or the toy museum offer an afternoon of sights. Valuable art objects, modern works of art and some oddities extend an invitation to marvel and wonder. ...A playful lightness that is so unmistakably Salzburg - a world city on a small scale. The silhouette of the castles, cathedrals and steeples, in this charming baroque city at the north edge of the Alps. It is so lovely that it is part of the UNESCO world cultural heritage. And so famous that its attractions are known throughout the world.
