“Surprisingly Awesome”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Going into Salzburg, I thought a day in and out and I'd be happy. Not nearly enough time for this great little city. The city atmosphere is great and the people are wonderful.

“A beautiful tourist trap”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Yes, yes, it is a beautiful city center and it is full of tourists and tourist shops and businesses built on tourism ...another tourist attraction...what is the difference in riding in a horse carriage in Vienna or in Salzburg? You can now buy mozart kugeln/chocolate everywhere, so why would you buy one here? Why would i buy violin shaped pencil head made in china?

“Old, quaint and elegant.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

But make sure you've got your credit card on hand! It's a beautiful place, particularly in the snow when we went in January, but it would seem that the Austrians don't do anything on a budget!
