Things to Do in Salzburg

The city of Salzburg and its surrounding areas are best-known for being featured in The Sound of Music. The most famous film locations are the baroque Mirabell Palace and Gardens, the Felsenreitschule (Summer Riding School), and the Benedictine Nonnberg Convent. These sites are well-worth a visit, even if you’re not musically-inclined!

Mirabell Palace and Gardens, Salzburg, Austria, Europe
Mirabell Palace and Gardens is featured in "The Sound of Music". 
 

After taking a stroll through the quaint Old Town, head up to the Festung Hohensalzburg (Salzburg Castle), built in 1077, for a great view over the city. You can easily access it by foot, or via funicular.

Mirabel palace, Mozart , Untersbergbahn.

Untersbergbahn must visit.. Old town :a walk in old Town will show you the pure essence of Salzburg and you can make various stop at all the museum in the way. Don't forget to click picture on old bridge. The way to castle is beautiful. Go by cable car.it will save time. And Salzburg card is worth every penny.

Untersbergbahn. Snow covered mountain Going in off season as Untersbergbahn is closed.

Old town and the city center

Interesting historical destination; a good mix between a bustling city life and the old town sightseeing. Good for a relaxed getaway.

Old Town Salzburg

This city is a beautiful little gem on the Austrian border. At Christmas it comes alive with markets and winter food favorites. Quiet and family friendly.

Pretty for a day

Great day trip from Munich, but wouldn’t recommend staying for longer. Walk up to the fortress rather than paying for the funicular and ensure you have plenty of time to walk around the old town!

A Stunning City

I visited Salzburg several times while living in Germany. I loved the tranquility of the city and gorgeous open surroundings. Visiting the old part of the city really feels like stepping back in time.

Salzburg - Winter Wonderland

Salzburg is a perfect city for a weekendtrip in Winter. There are a lot of nice litte markets, great food and the beautiful castle (covered in snow if you are lucky) You can wander around the little streets in the old town and do some window shopping for hours and then enjoy some mulled wine in one of the many nice cafés.

Great Day Trip

Perfect for a day trip, especially if you love The Sound of Music! Worth going up to the castle/fort for lovely views.
