Mozart’s birthplace and the home of The Sound of Music – this is Salzburg Austria. The city center is filled with cultural highlights (and chocolate!!!) while the surrounding landscape will take away your breath with stunning views of blue lakes and impressive mountains. The list of things to do in Salzburg is extensive so plan to give yourself enough time during your Salzburg city break to enjoy as many Salzburg attractions as possible. If you visit during July and August you can attend the very popular Salzburg Music Festival.

Salzburg Austria - Where culture meets stunning views!

Start your Salzburg visit at the fortress Hohensalzburg, which overlooks the entire city. Next you can visit Salzburg Old Town (Altstadt) which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, home to many medieval and baroque buildings. Other must-see things to do in Salzburg include visiting the birth house of Mozart, the Museum of Modern Art and of course the Getreidegasse – the absolutely best place for shopping, soaking up the unique Salzburg Austria atmosphere and enjoying exquisite coffee and a slice of Sacher Schnitte (aka Sachertorte).

Not far from bustling Salzburg your Da Capo guided bus tour can take you to explore scenic places in the Salzkammergut such as the Mirabell Palace and its beautiful gardens and the Hellbrunn Palace, where you will have fun with the amazing trick fountains. Continuing your tour of the Salzburg region, Wolfgangsee, Mondsee and Attersee are only some of the crystal-blue lakes you can find – a scenic boat tour on the lake is a wonderful way to appreciate the remarkable scenery. A little bit further you can find Hallstatt – a unique city built on the shores of yet another beautiful Austrian lake. You will fall in love with the charm and beauty of this place!
