Spectacular vistas with the surrounding peaks framed out this beautiful town. The sights are many and the cultural activities as well. Many opportunities to listen to music, stroll through parks, enjoy a beer in one of the many outdoor venues and ride along the river an the riverfront trail.

So many amazing places to see in Salzbur's Old Town.

We went into the Dom and a couple of other churches and walked through the cemetery. It was very busy as the Salzburg Festival was on, but... More

The architecture, domes and towers, narrow alleys and Mozart collections, the river, churches, markets and human statues - so much of interests crammed into an easy walking space - something new round every corner. A magical place
