Salzburg
 
Salzburg

Salzburg is dubbed the 'Rome of the North' because of its many churches. It is a compact town easy to get around on foot.

Salzburg is packed with attractions: churches, mansions, museums. The old city offers all of those on a small surface.

===== SALZBURG - SIGHTSEEING

On the outskirts of the city is one of Salzburg's top attractions Hellbrunn Castle.

Mozart's hometown celebrated the Master's 250th birthday in 2006, but his music continues on and Salzburg continues to serve as an impressive setting for Mozart's accomplishments. Music is an integral part of this city's essence and those interested in Mozart may want to see the his impressive statue in Mozart Square (the Mozartplatz).

Salzburg's Old Town, a wonderland of Baroque architecture, is a must visit. Most of the Old Town is pedestrian-only, which makes it even more delightful to explore.

During your tour of the Old Town, be sure to explore Cathedral Square for its beautiful and historic Cathedral (the Salzburger Dom). Continue across the street to explore the impressive Residenz Palace, the former home of the Prince-Archbishops of Salzburg.

When you have seen enough monuments and historic buildings, stop in a cafe for a delicious treat or wander along the Getreidegasse, for the city's best shopping . By the way, this is the street where Mozart's family lived and where he was born in 1756.

Don't pass up the Mirabel Palace and its delightful gardens on the right bank of the Salzach River (across the river and north of the Old Town, but south of Saint-Julien Strasse). The gardens are beautiful when they are in bloom and this is an excellent location for snapping some prized vacation photos.

Also, budget time to tour the Hohensalzburg Fortress (often called the Festung), which has dominated the Salzburg skyline for over a thousand years.

Salzburg has a number of quality museums, mostly focused on art.

Visit St. Gilgen if your schedule permits and you are in the looking for a memorable example of idyllic life in the Austrian countryside. The village is about 25 miles east of Salzburg on the banks of Wolfgangsee Lake and makes a pleasant day trip

If you find the Hohensalzburg fortress interesting, you might be interested in Castle Werfen, one of its sister fortresses, about 30 miles south of the city. It is one of the most scenic of Austria's hilltop castles.
