The best part about old town was actually views from the surrounding hills/fortress/monastery of the old town - the spires above town are very beautiful.

Salzburg is a stunning place to visit. It is as though you step back into time when you visit there. The market is flowing with merchants selling meats, baked goods and clothing. The horse drawn carriages move swiftly through the streets. The beautiful fountains and sculptures are everywhere.

Visited in April, and all the beautiful plants were in bloom! Enjoyed seeing the places I knew from the "Sound of Music' movie. Lovely city.

The shopping was fantastic, the food good & I loved the wrought iron signs above the various shops. touring the castle was fun. I truly enjoyed Old Salzburg & can't wait to return.

Everything is walking distance. Restaurants and cafes are all great! Suggestion: buy the Salzburg card for 27 euros and you do EVERYTHING even the funicular to the fortress. It works perfectly well!

We could walk almost everywhere in the city within 1 day. The city was so beautiful with a lot of unique small shops around. Transportation was convenient. Love the city. People were very nice and helpful. Except for that one coffeeshop beside Mozart's Birthplace (The one inside the alley) Bad expensive coffee with very rude owner.

Great buildings, nice musea but beware of traditional tourist traps. But in general certainly a nice touristic place

I would definitely recommend taking a walk in the Old Town to discover how great this city really is. It is full of history and if you have some time, sit at any cafe and appreciate the beauty of it.

Everything you want to see is within walking distance. Salzburg is untouched by 20th century conflicts, and has amazing terrain in the surrounding area.
