Sights in the City of Salzburg
Art, culture and history - experience Mozart's birthplace
For several centuries, Salzburg's prince archbishops represented the secular and spiritual power of the province.
Even today, many impressive historical monuments, built with the riches of salt mining, provide a reminder of their rule.
Masterpieces an famous persons
The ornate architectural masterpieces of very well-known artists and architects from several periods continue to define the city as we see it today.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is Salzburg's most famous son and grew up here.
The United Nations also recognised the value of Salzburg's old town and have placed it under their protection as a world heritage site, not least because the world's most famous musician was born here.
