Salzburger Altstadt, Salzburg

4.7
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.

  • Salzburg certainly deserves a long visit from citizens who love art in all its manifestations. Mozart's hometown and home to a prestigious music Festival (also known for the beautiful film all together passionately) has had great impulse under the rule of the Princes bishops, who have made build churches and notable palaces. To visit the imposing cathedral, the fortress Hohensalzburg, the Mirabel Castle with its exquisite gardens, Schloss Hellbrunn with its fantasies and water games, the narrow streets of the Altstadt/Old Town, the various Konditorei/pastry shops in which to enjoy the Wonderful cakes, the birthplace of the great Mozart. So in life you have to spend a few days to fully enjoy this enchanting vittà.
