Cultural and shopping excursion

The 4th largest city in Austria and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997, Salzburg is considered to one of the most beautiful cities in the world with its many baroque domes and churches.
Thanks to the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart who was born in 1756 in the city and and Salzburg Festival the city is known all over the world.

Hohensalzburg Fortress, the most famous landmark was built in 1077 by Archbishop Gebhard and its perimeter later extended by Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach (1495-1519). It is the largest preserved castle in mid Europe. The castle fell into disuse at the end of the 19th century; many sources have since revived and preserved the historic building.

A visit to Hellbrunn castle just outside the city should not be forgotten. Features include the castle itself and grounds, the unique water games and the large park. The castle has been a retreat and an entertainment location for Salzburg´s richest and their guests for over 400 years. Highly recommended is the advent market in the castle grounds.

Mirabell castle with its baroque gardens, Mozart's birth house in the Getriedegasse as well as Salzburgs' many beer gardens and cafes are all worth a visit. Make sure you read up on any entertainment or events scheduled in the city during your visit.
