Salzburg city trips
Salzburg city breaks and short trips for sightseeing
A small austrian city, full of sights and attractions. Walk through the Getreidegasse Alley or visit Salzburg Fortress.
Of particular interest are the wrought iron, often gold-plated guild signs from the 16th - 19th centuries whose design probably originated during the Middle Ages.
Ornate facades, picturesque arcaded courtyards. The Getreidegasse, site of Mozart's birthplace, lies in the historic old town and city centre of Salzburg.
