1. Classical Music & Jazz Hotspot
Say what you will, Salzburg is and always will be Europe’s capital when it comes to classical music. More than 250,000 visitors attend the world-famous Salzburg Festival each year to enjoy opera, theatre and musical performances. 2020 marks a very special year, as the Salzburg Festival celebrates its centennial with a unique itinerary and a temporary exhibition at the Salzburg Museum. Further highlights include Mozart Week, the Salzburg Easter Festival and Jazz and the City.
2. Explore The Sound of Music’s Filming Locations
The Sound of Music, arguably the most famous film featuring Salzburg, and the real history behind it have left their mark on the city. You can visit a dedicated museum, take guided The Sound of Music Tours, or explore the filming locations for yourself.
3. Unusual Local Shopping
Whilst Salzburg’s shopping streets boast all the usual international brands, they are also a treasure trove of small, traditional shops, such as Knopferlmayer (a button shop), Holzermayr Confectionary or NAGY (a gingerbread and candle maker).
