Festung Hohensalzburg, Salzburg's landmark, is Central Europe’s largest intact fortress and offers fantastic views of the city. Visit the Princely Residence, a magnificent early baroque edifice with splendid halls and a gallery featuring European paintings dating between the 16th and 19th century. The nearby vast Salzburg Dom is without doubt the main attraction of the old town. Inside you'll find the Romanesque font where Mozart was baptized.

Take time out to visit Mozart's Geburtshaus, the place where the genial composer was born on January 27, 1756. The house is located in Getreidegasse, Salzburg’s most attractive and most visited shopping street with its high and narrow houses and romantic courtyards. Another highlight is Schloss Mirabell with its splendid gardens built by the baroque master builder Lukas von Hildebrandt.

The Trapp family and The Sound of Music is inseparably linked with Salzburg. Follow Maria's footsteps and explore the many locations in the city of Salzburg and the surrounding countryside. Panorama tours offers a bus tour, which takes you to all movie sites.

The Festival District, at the foot of Mönchsberg,with two famous festival halls and the Felsenreitschule is a baroque masterpiece designed by Fischer von Erlach in 1693. South of Salzburg’s old town is the popular Schloss Hellbrunn with the world-famous 'Wasserspiele' containing many ingenious trick fountains and water-powered figures.

Some 4,000 cultural events make Salzburg one of the most important cultural centers. The acclaimed Salzburger Festspiele, founded in 1920, is the high point in Salzburg’s culture calendar and includes concerts, opera and theater performances.

St. Peter's Abbey, Europe's oldest restaurant is located in the heart of Salzburg and a great starting point to walk up to the Fortress Hohensalzburg.
