Salzburg

Explore Austria

Often considered Austria’s cultural capital for its year-round festivals, the Baroque city of Salzburg hosts over 4,000 events a year. Get your bearings with views over the city from one of central Europe’s largest intact fortresses, Hohensalzburg Castle, which doubles as a concert hall. The city’s most important sacred building, Salzburg Cathedral, is one of the old town’s landmarks (as well as Salzburg’s “spiritual soul”), housing the Romanesque font where Mozart was baptised. Part of the European Mozart Ways Cultural Route, Salzburg boasts the home where the composer was born, which has been converted into a museum along Getreidegasse, one of the city’s most stunning shopping streets.
