Salzburg is located beside the fast flowing Salzach River. It is filled with a mosaic of graceful domes and spires. Its cliff top fortress with its the mountains beyond, offer a view that inspired their home grown genius Mozart.
As tempting as it is to spend every minute in the Unesco listed Altstadt district, or going from one baroque church to monumental square, Salzburg rewards those who venture still further. Why not try Getreidegasse’s busy shopping district, or stroll through the side streets were classical music wafts from open windows and coffee shops. Salzburg is a cultural heaven and has so much to offer.
The film the Sound of Music with Julie Andrews is the other huge draw to the city. There is a burgeoning arts scene, wonderful food, manicured parks and concert halls, that uphold its musical tradition all year round.
