So very beautiful

Was lucky to be here during Christmas to enjoy the wonderful Xmas markets. Definitely one of the most beautiful old towns I've been to.

Taking over most of the town, there is a massive selection of food, punsch and trade stands offering a huge amount of interesting things. Most people have good English but are highly tolerant of poor pronunciation if you try... More

By all means, get the Salzburg Card which will cover all of your transportation, museums and attractions while you are in Salzburg. It saved us a fortune. I just wish we had gotten the 48 hour card instead of the 24 hour. It is good for most of the popular attractions, including the funicular, Hohensalzburg, Cable Car, Museum Moderne, Mozart... More

the birth place of Mozart and the backdrop of The Sound of Music, this town is beautiful, quaint and relaxing. We came in on a train from Munich and immediately we recognized how wonderfully friendly the people were. Getting direction to our Hotel Lasserhof was easy. Then our exploration began with our focus on Beauty, History, Sound of Music and... More

This is a lovely place to window shop, and stop into galleries and curio shops. There are numerous restaurants and, of course the architecture is spectacular. It is easy to see everything in a couple of hours, at alive surely pace. The Mozart statue made me a little sad since the big thing here are the chocolates wrapped in foil... More
