What to see in Salzburg

Salzburg, a city steeped in musical history and baroque beauty, offers a myriad of experiences for visitors. Situated on the banks of the Salzach River, this Austrian city is a harmonious blend of historical elegance and cultural vibrancy.

One of the city’s most significant landmarks is the Hohensalzburg Fortress, perched atop Festungsberg Hill. A symbol of Salzburg’s past, this fortress is one of the largest and best-preserved in Europe. Visitors can either take a leisurely walk up the hill or ride the funicular railway to reach the top. Once there, they can explore the medieval chambers, look out towers and museums within the fortress walls. The view from the fortress is breathtaking, offering a panoramic vista of Salzburg’s rooftops, the Salzach River, and the surrounding Alps. The fortress also hosts classical concerts in its grand halls, providing an opportunity to experience the city’s rich musical heritage in a historic setting.

Another must-visit attraction is the Mirabell Palace and Gardens. Located on the east side of the Salzach River, the palace, built by Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau in 1606, is a masterpiece of baroque architecture. The Mirabell Gardens, with their geometrically arranged flower beds, mythological statues and the famous Pegasus Fountain, are a delight for the eyes. Fans of The Sound of Music will recognise parts of the garden from the iconic film. The palace, now the seat of Salzburg’s mayor and municipal council, also hosts classical music concerts, continuing Salzburg’s tradition as a city of music.

Salzburg is also renowned for being the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and a visit to Mozart’s Birthplace in the heart of the Old Town is an immersion into the early life of this musical genius. The house, where Mozart was born in 1756, is now a museum dedicated to his life and work. Visitors can see historical instruments, documents and memorabilia associated with Mozart. The museum not only provides an insight into Mozart’s personal and family life but also into the 18th-century Salzburg that shaped his early years. For classical music enthusiasts, this experience is a touching and intimate connection to one of the world’s greatest composers.
