We had a great luck with the weather. Snow everywhere was magical and the warmth of sun kept us walking around. No need for buses around here, everything is walking distance. And you can soak up the atmosphere better on a foot.

We stayed in Salzburg's Altstadt for 3 nights and loved the atmosphere, all the historic sites are within walking distance & even in icy conditions being a tourist here was easy and enjoyable.

We love Christmas and Salzburg certainly didn't disappoint! The Christmas market was lively. Filled with locals and tourists alike. When we were there we even got the chance to hear some kind of Christmas carol. We were extremely grateful to have been able to visit Salzburg. I would definitely try to visit again sometime in the future.

Salzburg was a beautiful idyllic town nested in the Austrian Alps. We were here at the end of fall season and beginning of the winter season. You can walk the entirety of the town in 1 day. Very charming and old feel to the town. Would recommend visiting the town.

We spent there the last days of 2016 and also New Year day 2017. It was packed with tourists, but we were able to find places in restaurants without a problem. Do buy the 24 or 48 hour city pass, that allows you to enter must of the exhibitions, and includes public transportation.

Went through the old town before heading up to the Fortress. Still surpirsed to see a small Christmas market which adds more charm into it. Also look out for the unique signboards hanging above each shop. Though it was crowded but still one of the hilights in our Austria's trip.
