Festival city of Salzburg

Salzburg - always worth a visit
With a stroll through Salzburg's Old Town, the sights are at your feet: the Residenz, the Glockenspiel, the Cathedral, the Franciscan church, Mozart's birthplace, the Horse Pond, the Hofstallgasse, the Hohensalzburg Fortress and the Monastery of St. Peter. You can get a hint of times gone by in every nook and cranny: the ages have left their marks in churches, towers, facades, balustrades and galleries. And even the street names tell stories of events and people.

A visit to the beautiful city of Salzburg is simply a must at any time of year.
