Salzburg has an abundance of attractive venues. If you’re planning to visit Salzburg be sure to have enough time to take in the unique atmosphere and the bustle of the city.
Whether you’re coming for the culture, the Shopping, a stroll through the town, the cafés or simply to spend “a day in town” – the Old City has many charming facets.
By the way: tours of the Old City are possible by land as well as by water – a panorama ship has cruised on the Salzach since 2002, offering spectacular views of the City.
Since much of the Old City is a pedestrian zone and relatively small, it is ideal for walking and window shopping – it only takes about 20 minutes to walk from Nonntal (the southern end) to Mülln (the northern end). Those in a hurry can take a taxi whereas those with time to spare can indulge in a Fiaker ride, an oldtime horse and buggy creation, for a leisurely tour of the city..
It has greatly contributed to Salzburg’s renown and is one of the world’s most exclusive music festivals: ever since it was founded, the Salzburg Festival has been known for its exceptionally high quality of music, the commitment of its international artists and as a successful combination of the traditional and modern.
