Salzburg and the world of Mozart
Sightseeing in Salzburg
Who is not familiar with the birthplace of Mozart, the city of the famous Salzburg festival and the sweet Mozart balls? Whether bitter, sweet, romantic, traditional, or modern: Salzburg impresses every visitor with its unique beauty.
The historic centre of Salzburg was declared a UNESCO World heritage Site in 1997 for many reasons. Salzburg isn’t just the birthplace of Mozart; it offers much more to see and to explore. The former rulers and archbishops have left the city a wonderful heritage with plenty of fabulous attractions such as the Fortress Hohensalzburg, the Mirabell Palace, the Residence and the Salzburg Cathedral.
Salzburg: Attractions for everyone
Vibrant modern life paired with the traditions of days gone by makes Salzburg so unique today. Narrow, winding alleyways, romantic views, a cultural programme that leaves nothing to be desired and famous sights all over the city – this is Salzburg!
An umbrella is certainly not a bad idea for when you are visiting Salzburg as you can often run into the famous Salzburg drizzle. You should take advantage of the rainy weather to visit one of the museums in Salzburg – there are plenty of them in the centre.
But it’s not just the large number of attractions and sights that attract people to visit the city of Salzburg. Numerous conferences, trade shows and events take place every year in this fair city.
Salzburg is only 15 kilometres away from Bad Vigaun. You can reach the city by car, bus or train quickly and easily. Whether you have business meetings in Salzburg or you want to spend your evenings or holidays there – you can reach the city of Mozart in 15 to 20 minutes.
