It is the city of Mozart, the Salzburg Festival and the Sound of Music. A musical sky vaults over a skyline that is second to none. The centuries-long rule of Salzburg's prince archbishops produced an urban gem.

It was not for nothing that Alexander v. Humboldt counted Salzburg among the most beautiful places in the world. Nestled between three city mountains grew a historic city center, which was almost never affected by warlike conflicts. In the surrounding area you will find a romantic and varied natural landscape, which already inspired artists and travelers of the 18th century.

High culture as far as the eye can see

Today, Salzburg presents itself as a metropolis of world art. Classicism as well as modernity determine the atmosphere during the festival times. The genius loci, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, is omnipresent. World literature is brought to the stage in Salzburg and was written in the city of Hugo von Hofmannsthal or Stefan Zweig. Many visitors from all over the world the scenes of the musical "The Sound of Music" on.

Since the festive banquets of the archbishops, the small town on the outpost to the magnificent alpine mountain landscapes has seen itself as a gathering place of delights. Whereas in earlier times it was the colonial and specialty merchants, today it is the excellent restaurateurs who seduce our guests into all kinds of tastes. Not only Mozartkugeln and Salzburger Nockerln are offered by the restaurant landscape: there is talk of the greatest "hood density" and of the most diverse beer culture in Austria.
