The old town is quite picturesque but is a bit of a tourist trap. It is full of overpriced restaurants and shops.

Worth visit. In my view best time to visit is from 6 pm in summer. You can witness the sun set a long with the river and old buildings. That makes great art

A must visit when in Salzburg. Great culture and lots to do. Travel up to see the views from the castle walls.

Salzburg is beautiful - leave enough days to wander around and get a Salzburg card to save money if you like going into museums, galleries etc.

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting Salzburg's old town. So much to do and see. Stay in or as near as possible to the old town so you can walk around and enjoy the atmosphere and sights. The limited number of motor vehicles makes it all the more enjoyable. We have been twice, and hope to visit again. Travelled with 9 year old... More
