Founded in the year 696 as a salt mining and trading city on the banks of the River Salzach, Salzburg has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. Known for its historic city center, Baroque architecture and a medieval hilltop fortress, Salzburg is beautifully sited in the shadows of the Austrian Alps.
Walking through the old city’s quaint cobblestone streets, on it’s stone bridges and when riding the funicular to the view above town you are taken with the beautiful architecture of the many churches, cathedrals and government buildings, public squares, inviting street cafes, interesting shops and street markets. Truly the most romantic city that we’ve yet to visit. The culture that help shape and nurture the musical genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 270-years ago is still evident in the people, their institutions and traditions.
A visit to Salzburg is many things; classical musical performances, mountain vistas, magnificent architecture, an interesting and original cuisine, a friendly and gracious people offering an insight into a more formal and reserved time in history.
