“Don't miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

The area is nice. There're so many interesting places to visit within the old town area and they are all in a walking distance. Attractions, restaurants and hotels condensed in this area. Then, this is the busiest area of Salzburg I would say.

“Beautfiful history and architecture but so over priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

These old streets are gorgeous to walk through. Unfortunately after many years of zillions of tourists it is completely over priced and geared to those with full pockets. Even in November the main streets were crowded at night time. I am amazed the Austrians remain patient in such an environment.

“Beautful charming old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Salzburg was a part of my trip to Austria , its one of the most beautiful place in Austria . The old town is charming. The path running along the river is beautiful place to relax. Small little town that one can fully cover by foot and have a delightful experience too.

“Lovely city with everything you need close to hand.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

One of our favourite cities, not too big so most main attractions within close proximity. Beautiful buildings and streets and also lots of beautiful wooded areas around with views of the Alps. Plenty of coffee shops bars and restaurants for all tastes. In particular lovely old places in cobbled alleys
