Book cheap hotels in Salzburg and follow the steps of Mozart, explore the filming locations of the legendary film “The Sound of Music” and discover your own inner music!
Salzburg stretches across the banks of River Salzach, at the northern borders of the Alps. A baroque gem in alpine scenery, this Austrian city has its foundations on the salt mines of the region. Salzburg is a city of Austria, yet its annexation is a recent one, having become a property of the Habsburgs in 1816, right after the French Revolution.
Salzburg became internationally famed for two main reasons; as a filming location of the film “The Sound of Music” and as the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
These two facts have played - and still do - a major role in the economic development of the city. Salzburg though has so much more to offer as a travel destination. An exquisite artistic scene, a fabulous cuisine, large green spaces and concert halls that honour Salzburg’s priceless musical tradition and heritage, to name a few.
All agree to that: The journey to Salzburg is an extraordinary experience, flooded with beauty and decorated with pinches of magic; some claim that if you listen carefully, you can still hear Julie Andrews’s voice echoing in the lush green hills! Not to be missed!
The airport of Salzburg (Salzburg Airport W.A. Mozart) is located 3.1 kilometres west of the city centre and is accessible by bus No.2 and No. 10.
Getting around Salzburg
Transportation in Salzburg is accomplished mainly on foot. If though you prefer using the city’s public transport, you will find a very well-organised bus and trolley network. Fares start from 1.80€ and minimum taxi fare costs around 3.10€.
The Old Town of Salzburg (Altstadt) stands at the south bank of River Salzach and is the area where you’ll find the majority of the city’s attractions and points of interest. The largest part of Salzburg’s Old Town comprises of narrow medieval streets and elegant houses.
At the heart of the Old Town lies the Residentplatz square, dominated by a massive Baroque fountain, the largest in the world. To the west, stretches the Residenz palace complex, now famous for housing the Salzburg Museum.
Make your first stop here and visit the museum, to enjoy a travel back in Salzburg’s history. Begin at the Kunsthalle on the ground floor, where art exhibitions are hosted frequently and slowly reach the upper floors, through medieval works of art, memorabilia, artefacts and various collections and exhibitions.
Continue to St. Peter’s Cemetery (Petersfriedhof), one of Salzburg’s most popular sights and head to Mozartplatz, centred on the statue of the great composer, as well as the house where he was born and lived the first 18 years of his life. The home of Mozart today serves as a museum, dedicated to his life and work and exhibiting many interesting collections of personal belongings, musical instruments, documents and manuscripts.
Your next stop is the Cathedral of Salzburg (Dom), a Baroque structure designed by Santino Solari, whose inspiration you can also witness at the Hellbrunn Palace, famous for its elaborate murals and frescoes.
Head east, to find the Nonnberg quarter; gaze at the horizon and you’ll see the Hohensalzburg fortress looming over the district, 455-metre-tall. This is one of Europe’s most well-preserved castles and you can reach it either by riding the cable car or by climbing the stairs to the hilltop.
The Staatsbrücke Bridge spans the river and connects the Old Town to the modern part of Salzburg.
The Mirabell palace is one of the main trademarks of modern Salzburg, accompanied by its elegant gardens and followed by a rather spicy story:
The palace was built in the 17th century by Archbishop Wold Dietrich for his mistress, Salome Alt, with whom he had countless illegitimate children. He even named the palace Altenau, in her favour. Dietrich’s heir, Marcus Sitticus, later used the palace as a complimentary residence, after he first renamed it, to wash off the shame.
Upon your entrance, follow the marble staircase, decorated with Baroque details, and you will reach the beautiful Marble Hall, often used as a concert hall up until today. The gardens of the palace are also open to the public and are considered as Salzburg’s most important public park.
The official language of Salzburg is German. English and French are also widely spoken by the locals.
