Why you should go to Salzburg

Found on the banks of the Salzach River, Salzburg 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 itself.

Salzburg is well known for many different reasons. It’s popular for skiers who want to take on the Alps, and it’s also famous as being the birthplace of Mozart and the iconic setting for the classic film, The Sound of Music. There are countless historical and cultural sights to see during your time in the city, including two palaces, Mirabell and Hellbrunn. Mirabell’s stunning gardens and Hellbrunn’s renaissance-style architecture speak for themselves – you will definitely be snapping a few photos!

Hohensalzburg Castle is an 11th century fortress at the top of a hill overlooking Salzburg, and another must-see during your stay. Meanwhile, Petersfriedhof is a beautiful and historic Christian graveyard which looks like something out of a storybook. Plus, 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, loved by 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 to enjoy whilst you are in Salzburg. Just make sure you plan your itinerary before you go!
