24 hours in Salzburg
One day is all it takes to fall hopelessly in love with Salzburg. Begin your day with a delightful breakfast at one of the many coffeehouses with their cozy niches and picturesque terraces: choose a trendy café such as the Afro Café, the terrace at Hotel Stein, the "Rösthaus und Café 220 Grad" or the Republic or try one of the classic coffeehouses such as Café Bazar, Café Wernbacher or Café Fingerlos.
An eventful morning
Fortified by a good breakfast, you can spend the day enjoying a multitude of activities: if you enjoy shopping, you'll love browsing some great shops in Getreidegasse. If you have your sights set high, you have two city mountains to choose from, the Mönchsberg or the Kapuzinerberg, each offering an entirely different experience: whereas the Kapuzinerberg promises the peace and tranquility of nature, the Mönchsberg has a number of highlights to offer, including the Museum of Modern Art, the m32 Restaurant and Hohensalzburg Fortress. Or you can head south to Hellbrunn Palace with its Trick Fountains or take a cable car to the top of the Untersberg.
The major attractions
Be sure not to miss the following attractions on your walk through the city: Hohensalzburg Fortress, the Cathedral, the Franciscan Church, St. Peter's Monastery, Church and Cemetery, Mozart's Birthplace in Getreidegasse, the Residence and its magnificent State Rooms and the Mirabell Gardens on the other side of the Salzach River with its Pegasus Fountain, Dwarves Garden, Hedge Theater and Rose Garden.
A memorable evening
With over 4,000 cultural events held each year, there's always something going on in the city of Salzburg. Whether you prefer the theater, a concert at the Fortress, a jazz concert, a reading or a salsa evening – you'll find the right program for every taste any day of the week. A glass of wine at one of the bars, a snack at one of the sausage stands or a stroll through the romantic Old City at night is a great way to round off the evening.
