Experience Salzburg

Salzburg is famous for its marvelous historical city center and the cultural activities. Salzburg's cityscape and numerous historic monuments prompted UNESCO to list the Old City as a World Heritage Site in 1997. W. A. Mozart adored Salzburg and many joined him in his love for the "many-towered city." The beautiful and smallest world city nevertheless has a cosmopolitan format. In Salzburg the magnificent past blends with the charm of an active present. The densely packed church towers between the city mountains reflect the affluence of the former prince archbishops. The lofty fortress looms defiantly above the streets and squares. A city that has not lost any of its fascination and magnetism.

The city of Salzburg

Salzburg, located in the heart of Europe, is the capital of the federal state of the same name and the fourth largest city in Austria. The northwestern part of the city borders on the Free State of Bavaria in the Federal Republic of Germany

Mirabellgarten

The Mirabell Gardens were completely redesigned under archbishop Johann Ernst von Thun in 1690. The underlying geometrical form, which is typical for the Baroque period, is still clearly recognizable. The visual orientation towards the cathedral and fortress adds to the grandeur of the gardens – simultaneously incorporating them into the overall historical ensemble of the city.

Mirabell Palace was built in 1606 by prince-archbishop Wolf Dietrich for his beloved Salome Alt. Today, it serves as the backdrop for the most romantic weddings you could possibly imagine.

The atmosphere in Salzburg is pervaded by beauty, theater and art, and not without reason Salzburg is called "The Stage of the World." To the city's international renown, the Salzburg Festival contributed significantly. Hugo von Hofmannsthal's Everyman has been an essential element of the Festival since 1920 and is performed every year on Cathedral Square. Not less has Salzburg's most famous son, W. A. Mozart, undeniably left his mark on the city: his birthplace in Getreidegasse, his residence on Markart square and his music. Besides the cultural experience Salzburg is enriched by a multitude of museums, galleries, sculptures and exhibitions.

Hohensalzburg Fortress

Hohensalzburg Fortress is enthroned on the Festungsberg, high above the rooftops of the Baroque historical district. The biggest fully preserved castle in Central Europe, this emblem of Salzburg draws millions of tourists to our "City of Mozart" every year.

Leopoldskron

Picturesquely situated Schloss Leopoldskron lies just a few minutes’ walk from the Salzburg historical district, the world-famous former family seat of one of the prince-archbishops as well as an original shooting location from the movie “The Sound of Music”.

Mozart

Mozart was born in Salzburg back in 1756. The Mozart Residence on Makartplatz and the Mozart Birthplace on the Getreidegasse, both of which are now museums, remind us of his extraordinary childhood. Numerous concerts, festivals and guided tours keep the spirit of Mozart alive and well in Salzburg.
