Surrounded by mountain ranges and boasting a well-preserved city center, Salzburg melds culture and history. As the birthplace of Mozart and the setting for the movie The Sound of Music, the city enjoys a history of producing universally beloved music. Salzburg has been inhabited since the Neolithic Age, and visitors can see some of that history at Altstadt (the city center, a World Heritage Site). Salzburg’s gourmet food scene, its quickly developing arts scene, and its elegant Baroque architecture round out the city. Take stress off the schedule by using our Austria journey builder tool.
