Plenty of shops to window shop or do some shopping if it takes your fancy, ice cream to taste, and people watching to do in the old town. Walk over lock lock bridge towards the old town and get some great photos of the fortress which guards the city of Salzburg.

The bus ride from Linz, Austria to Salzburg was a complete delight. The farms and forests en route were pleasant and reminded the riders just how rural most of Europe is.

The old town is full of laneways that once the morning deliveries are done are free of cars. The laneways don't seem... More

AS with most splendid locations you have to be prepared for the crowds. Salzburg's old town is no different. But you can enjoy its baroque wonders early in the mornings and late evenings in relative quiet after all the bus tours have gone. You need a few days to take it all in so suggest a hotel either within the... More

Easy to get around on foot to different tourist sights, with plenty of shops and attractions. Salzburg is a very clean and safe environment with cost comparable to any city in Australia

Walking in the old town and going up to the Castle Hohensalzburg is worth spending some hours. Shopping is also okay.
