When strolling through Salzburg, make sure to keep your eyes wide open because you’ll find something to marvel at on every corner.  

The Getreidegasse, Salzburg’s most famous street, is known for its eloquent boutiques, idyllic courtyards and arcades, as well as for its historic wrought-iron signs.

On the Alten Markt Square visitors will find the oldest pharmacy and the smallest house in Salzburg.  On the Cathedral and Palace Squares, impressive buildings invite guests to come inside to explore and discover.

Our many museums offer guests a chance to learn more about the history and traditions of Salzburg.  

The Cathedral Museum, for example, offers a look back into the city’s Roman era.  In the Marionette Museum visitors can admire the hand-carved marionettes which are used in various theater productions.  

Salzburg‘s green oases

Salzburg’s numerous parks and gardens invite guests to relax and enjoy.  How about a stroll through the magnificent Mirabell Garden?  During the summer months the Mirabell Garden is adorned with an impressive array of flowers.  Another option is the Volksgarten  - a great place to take a rest and to relax under its many shade trees.  

Just beyond the city limits guests will find Hellbrunn Park.  This, too, is a great place to stroll through picturesque nature and to have a picnic.  Children will certainly enjoy the large playground where they have ample space to romp around and play as they wish.
