Salzburg

Austria
Salzburg travel packages

A city of music, art and architecture. Salzburg is a baroque jewel in a spectacular alpine setting. Mozart and the Sound of Music come alive here.

Salzburg's old town is comprised of renowned baroque architecture, forming one of Europe's best-preserved town centers. All of this, combined with the Alps as its backdrop, make Salzburg unforgettable. Salzburg's two claims to fame are as the birthplace of Mozart and the stage for the American musical the Sound of Music. Highlights of the city include the imposing Salzburg Cathedral and the Hohensalzburg Fortress, which dominate the skyline of Salzburg.

Salzburg is as much known for its impressive natural surroundings as for its charming Old Town. No trip to Salzburg is complete without a visit to the unspoilt countryside nearby. This includes sights such as the Hellbrunn Palace. Further afield you'll find Berchtesgaden, home to Hitler's Eagle's Nest. Salzburg has a very festive atmosphere throughout the year. There are many classical music performances, outdoor summer festivals and a beautiful Christmas market. The Mirabell Palace is another must-see.

You can also find delicious Austrian cuisine throughout Salzburg. The local white wines as well as local beers are worth sampling. We recommend the atmospheric beer halls of the Augustiner brewery.

What I love about Salzburg

Jared

Travel Advisor

The center of Salzburg has a small town vibe with jaw dropping hilltop views of the city and surrounding alpine foothills. As the hometown of Mozart, it is an amazing place to relax, enjoy some music and take in the sights.

Where to stay in Salzburg

Salzburg's chocolate-box Old Town is the location for most of the hotels we offer in the city, along with some options a short walk away. For that true king of the hill feeling, however, a castle high above the city is hard to beat, and we can certainly provide rooms in one as well. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.
Classic hotel with great location
A cozy hotel with welcoming service and a wide variety of rooms designed in standard American style. Comfort and convenience at the right price.
Luxury historical hotel
A truly unique 5-star hotel in a former castle that will amaze and delight you with its elegance and service as well as its fantastic views over the city.
Creative design hotel
A new hotel with a young team, fresh design, and good service.

Things to do in Salzburg

You might think that Salzburg's only about Mozart and the Sound of Music, and while these are major preoccupations, there's more to the city than that, as you can see on a private walking tour. There are popular day trip destinations in several directions, with the Eagle's Nest (Hitler's mountain retreat), and Hallstatt, the popular alpine lakeside village both being within comfortable driving distance. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider for adding later.
