Go on a journey of discovery in the legendary and historic places of Salzburg. Feel the 1000-year history in imposing castles and feel the baroque sensual pleasures in the Residenz zu Salzburg. Collect a variety of impressions and immerse yourself in the exciting past and you will realize – history is alive!

At the foot of the mighty Hohensalzburg Fortress lies the historic city center with the cathedral and the Franciscan church, with idyllic alleys, wide, already Italian-like squares, the world-famous Festival Hall, the Glockenspiel and the Mozart Monument. Of course, a stay in the city of Mozart goes hand in hand with music, opera festivals, art and culture. The Salzburg Opera Festival is a special highlight.

The “City of Mozart”, as Salzburg is called because Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born here and spent half of his life in Salzburg, offers not only culture but also a vibrant life with cozy pubs, trendy bars and the world-famous Getreidegasse, the center of the beautiful pedestrian zone.
