Why you should go
Salzburg, found on the banks of the Salzach River, has a rich history and is one of the best preserved cities north of the Alps. The closest peak of the Alps, Untersberg, is less than 10 miles from the city. Salzburg is usually famous for three reasons; as a destination for skiers travelling to the nearby Alps, as the birthplace of Mozart, and as the setting for The Sound of Music. However, in addition to these three things, there are countless historical and cultural sights to see during your time in the city; two palaces, Mirabell and Hellbrunn, are particularly popular with visitors. Mirabell’s stunning gardens and Hellbrunn’s renaissance-style architecture speak for themselves – you will definitely be snapping a few photos!
Hohensalzburg Castle, an 11th-century fortress at the top of a hill overlooking Salzburg, is another must-see during your stay. Petersfriedhof is a beautiful and historic Christian graveyard, which looks like something out of a storybook – the catacombs are extremely popular with tourists! Aside from seeing the incredible architecture and historical landmarks, there are a variety of ways to explore Austrian culture. You can try a Mozartkugel (Mozart Ball) – a delicious mixture of chocolate, pistachio and marzipan, famous with locals – and enjoy a traditional 1-litre-stein of "Märzen" (lager), in the popular beer garden of the Bräustüberl.
There are also a variety of classical concerts, theatres, museums, galleries, farmers markets and everything else you could possibly think of in Salzburg to enjoy whilst you are there. Just make sure you plan your itinerary before you go!
