“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

The old town is full of character and the Christmas markets great to visit ... Lots of good food, ghluwine and atmosphere with Christmas carols and music

There are many interesting museums to see. My children loves the natural history museum and I can greatly recommend this for families

The views from the castle ... Monastery were awesome and it is well worth a visit

“Miss this on a trip to Salzburg and you miss out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

This is the best of what is offer on Salzburg. It is about a 20 minute walk from the main train station. The little narrow streets and lanes are adorable. Duck down into them and give yourself up to a this maze you never know what little gem you might come across including entire shops dedicated to Mozartkugeln chocolates and there are quite a variety - my personal favourite is Reber which I prefer it to Mirabell. The whole place is incredibly pretty with beautiful churches to visit including Salzburg Dom. Salzburg is easily accessed by train from Munich with return tickets as cheap as €27.

“One of my favourite cities and Old Towns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Walking around Salzburg's old town was a real treat. The atmosphere, the sights, and the beautiful scenery is something not to be missed. With the river flowing through and the castle on the hill Salzburg and its old town should be on any travellers list of stops.
