This is Salzburg

Salzburg is unique – in every regard. Anyone who has ever immersed themselves in the magic of the world-famous City of Mozart can never escape it again. The harmonious interplay of landscape and architecture, art and culture, as well as traditional and modern, all within a surprisingly small area, merely adds to the special charm of this place.

Top of Salzburg

Salzburg is the city where W. A. Mozart was born and the shooting location for "The Sound of Music". The narrow lanes and broad squares of this baroque city have taken their deserved place on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The internationally acclaimed Salzburg Festival, the magnificent panorama and the countless temptations of Christmastime make Salzburg a complete artwork in its own right, and one that is quite beyond compare.

Regardless of the season, Salzburg always radiates its own unique charm. And with an annual calendar chock-a-block with so many different events, your visit to the Festival City is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. Aside from its world-famous cultural and musical highlights, Salzburg offers many other compelling and exciting reasons to make a trip here.
