Austria is so neat and pretty. It feels really relaxing wandering around Salzburg going over the bridges that play Mozart and exploring the museums. There are a few well landscaped gardens that should not be missed, the flowers were stunning. This city does not have the horrible hustle and bustle that other European cities seem to have. I would happily... More

A very nice place, scented with the essence of history, it takes you away from the hollow views of modern cities. Really impressive and worth seeing.

Beautiful cobble stoned area to shop or just stroll. It's filled with local craft shops, churches and high end shops.

Loved everything about Salzburg Old Town. THe quaint little shops and the people in the stores. You get the true old European feel here. Just adore Salzburg and all it has to offer. My favourite place I visited....from Rome, Paris, Venice, London, Hamburg, Zurich, Vienna. So yeah a 'big call'. Can't wait to visit Salzburg's Old Town again one day.... More

Quaint, safe, and charming, Salzburg is a good mix of old and new. Everyone is very friendly and the town has lots of cute places for window shopping or traditional shopping. Pick up a lock and have it engraved with your initials and those of your love, and leave it on the "lock bridge," Makartstag.

We bought a Salzburg card for three days and it allowed us access to all of the attractions we wanted to see.

Salzburg is the picture perfect image of old Europe. A nice blend of shopping, sights, and restaurants. Great music too!

I'm so happy we decided to make a last minute decision to take a day trip junket from Vienna to Salzburg. We booked a day trip tour through the Vienna Marriott on our "off day" from our conference. It rained a good chunk of the day which made it a great choice to be out of the rain instead of... More

Absolutely fantastic! Would highly recommend this to anyone! Absolutely beautiful town and scenery... I thought one afternoon would be enough but it wasn't and I stayed over. What a lovely town. Totally walkable-very friendly people. Plenty of shopping...I could go on and on! I traveled alone and felt completely safe.
