Dreaming spires, sublime beauty, green hills, snow-white mountain tops and romantic gardens are just a few of the reasons why this city, the birthplace of Mozart, is loved by millions.

Insider Tip

Spend a leisurely day at Mirabell Garden and explore the park at Mirabell Palace.

Salzburg is like a real candy land! You will always find a delicious meal or treat on your plate that resembles a work of art. If something savoury is more appealing try a brettljause (cold platter) consisting of cheese, smoked bacon and fresh bread. Or try spatzle, a pasta-type dish, which is fried and served with strong cheese.

The old town offers a unique shopping experience. Jewellery and handicrafts are just some of the items that can be found for sale along the pretty, narrow lanes and charming squares in the historic centre.
