This cultural and historic city offers many more activities set against the stunning backdrop of churches and castles.

Salzburg Old Town, or Altstadt, is one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites, and it is easy to see why. The beautiful Baroque-style architecture and churches are straight out of a fairytale, while the looming Hohensalzburg Castle and attached museum serve as a reminder of Salzburg's decadent past.

Music lovers can visit his residence and the locations associated with Mozart's life in Salzburg. In winter, be sure to stay for one of Salzburg's famous Christmas markets. The Christkindlmarkt tradition dates back to the 15-century, with hundreds of stalls offering the finest mulled wine, handmade crafts, and delicious Christmas treats.
