Sightseeing in Salzburg City
Visit sights and attractions in the historic old town of Salzburg
Salzburg is a small and friendly city with many attractions and things to see. Stroll through the Getreidegasse alley where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born, visit the Fortress Hohensalzburg, the mighty Cathedral, Hellbrunn Palace with its Trick Fountains and the Zoo, or Mirabell Palace with its beautiful Gardens!
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 power.
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.
Centre of the City of Salzburg - World heritage
The United Nations also recognised the value of Salzburg's historic old town and city centre and have placed it under their protection as a world heritage site, not least because the world's most famous musician was born here.
