  • Overview

    Considered the Baroque jewel of the Austrian Alps, Salzburg sits on the banks of the Salzach River with the looming Hohensalzburg Fortress giving the city its unique silhouette; initiated by Archbishop Gebhard in 1077, this is the largest completely preserved castle in central Europe. Below, Salzburg’s charming Old Town is a recognised UNESCO World Heritage site where the maze of narrow cobbled streets gives an undeniable medieval atmosphere contrasting in part with the many grand tall houses and arcaded courtyards that have been re-faced and updated in Italianate Baroque and neo-Classical styles. Art galleries, gardens and museums are plentiful and the magnificent Salzburger Dom Cathedral, with its richly decorated marble façade and mighty dome, is the ecclesiastical heart of the city and an un-missable architectural highlight. Salzburg represents quintessential Austria with many landmarks familiar to us through the various singing exploits of Maria and the family von Trapp children in the widely watched and much-loved film, The Sound of Music.
