Salzburg’s most important sights at a glance
The historic centre of Salzburg on either side of Salzach river is popular with visitors from all over the world. No wonder – the pompous buildings and picturesque little alleys will have you smile in amazement.
What’s a must during every city trip to the Mozart metropolis? Exactly: a visit to Mozart’s birthplace and his residence! Equally as impressive and an essential part of every great tour: Mirabell Palace and its gardens. In summer, thousands of flowers and a breathtaking view of the fortress make this spot an incredible location for some holiday snapshots.
Another palace that’s an absolute must-see is Hellbrunn Palace on the edge of the city. The giant palace gardens with its trick fountains as well as neighbouring Salzburg Zoo are certainly worth a visit.

The stage is set for your cultural getaway
No matter which season it is, there are always various events and concerts happening in the city of Mozart. Salzburg’ jam-packed event calendar is just as varied as the city itself. Among the must-dos, you’ll find – unsurprisingly – the world-famous Salzburg Festival. St. Rupert’s Day Fair – a smaller equivalent to the Bavarian Oktoberfest – is another true highlight for fans of Salzburg’s culture and heritage.
Fans of history and the arts will feel right at home at Salzburg’s many museums. From modern sculpture or baroque paintings to toys and the civilization of the Celts: You’ll find exhibitions for every taste. If you’d like to let Salzburg enchant you by way of its performing arts, you should grab some tickets to one of the many theatre and dance performances.
What awaits you outside the World Heritage City
Especially if you’re planning a longer stay in Salzburg, it’s well worth it to explore Salzburg’s surrounding regions. A hot tip are the many little towns and villages in the Lake District such as Hallstatt, Fuschl am See, St. Wolfgang or Bad Ischl. In addition, many interesting excursion destinations await you in the Salzburger Land region. How about a visit to Hohenwerfen Castle or Hallein Salt Mine, for instance?

Tightly huddled together with your loved ones, you’ll be sipping on an aromatic cup of mulled wine or tasty hot punch. And all that accompanied by the sound of tasteful Christmas music. If that isn’t the spirit of the season – and the kind of magic you shouldn’t miss out on!
