A holiday in the city of Salzburg inevitably draws you into the heart of this world cultural heritage site. Where traces of Mozart’s presence can be found and where the prince-bishops once ruled the city, visitors now enjoy fascinating insights into these bygone ages. There’s plenty to see in Salzburg: Mozart’s birthplace, followed by his later home, old churches – especially the ‘Dom’ cathedral, numerous museums for all ages and art periods, old townhouses and lots more! Don’t miss great shopping opportunities in the old town, the shopping centres on the edge of the city – and the countless excellent places to enjoy culinary delights.

Countless events are held in the city throughout the year. Of course, the city of Mozart is famous around the world for the Salzburg Festival, but do you also know about the Whitsuntide Festival? It’s just one of the myriad highlights. From January to December – from Mozart week to the autumn Jazzherbst festival, and on to the advent choirs – there’s always something going on.
