Explore the City, Discover Nature
The birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the setting of The Sound of Music, home of the world-famous Salzburg Festival of classical music – wherever you look, Salzburg is infused with music and history. The city sure is good at making a grand entrance: Its splendid baroque architecture, designed by the greatest architects of their day at the behest of Salzburg’s prince-archbishops, has earned it the nickname “Rome of the North”.
And yet, Salzburg is just as adept at the small moments. Wandering the cobblestone streets in the city centre, strolling through the perfectly manicured Mirabell Gardens, or seeing the Salzach river wind its way through the city from one of the surrounding mountains – Salzburg’s unique mix of old culture and fresh nature gives you space to truly enjoy.
