Introducing Salzburg

Once the birthplace to Mozart and famed as the beautiful film setting for The Sound of Music, there’s no denying that the city of Salzburg is a culturally significant place in modern history. And with mind-blowing views over the Eastern Alps, it’s a place with incredible beauty and soul for the traveller who wants a picturesque destination with the perfect mix of history and nature. The city is divided by the Salzach River into two distinct worlds – the Old City of Altstadt with its medieval buildings and the New City of Neustadt with its 19th Century architecture and art – and there are numerous sights on both sides of the capital that should make everyone’s bucket list. A great city with great sights, made for families, groups or couples in search of some European culture.
