Your walk will take you right by Mozart's birthplace, which is the perfect place to take the first few pictures of your memorable trip to Salzburg.
The walk continues over historic Old Market: Here are Salzburg's oldest pharmacy, the royal apothecary, and the smallest house in the city. It goes on in the direction of the dome, the Residence and the fortress.
Your walk will not only take you by the most magnificent building of the city, but also by a large number of boutiques and stores of renowned labels.
If you want to use your trip to Salzburg for a shopping spree, you are bound to find what you are looking for.
Day two of your Salzburg weekend
Horse-drawn carriage rides in Salzburg's historic city center.
On the second day you will be heading towards the city center again, but this time with public transport.
Why? Because you will be taking the ship Amadeus on your way back out towards Hellbrunn Palace. The former summer residence of Markus Sittikus with its Trick Fountains, its fantastic park and zoological garden attracts a great number of tourists each year.
A visit to Hellbrunn is a worthy ending to your short Salzburg weekend trip.
