Surrounded by Monchsberg fortress and with the Salzach River winding its way through this World Heritage Site, Salzburger Altstadt represents an architectural mix of buildings. The river splits the town into two halves connected by a series of bridges. The left bank of the Salzach, where Roman buildings once stood, is older. Most of the core is pedestrian-only, so enjoy a stroll through the historic town's many narrow streets. The city wears its history on its streets, with buildings from the Middle Ages, Romanesque, Baroque, and Renaissance periods. Visit the fountain in Residence Square, the city's most famous square, and Mozart Square, a hometown tribute to the classical music legend.

It is absolutely worth spending 2-3 days and visiting places such as Mirabell Gardens, HohenSalzburg Fortress, Hellbrunn Castle, the salt mine (not far from the city).
Exceptional beauty. Historical city with natural blend. If you ever plan to go to one place in Europe- it must be Salzburg. more »
