Salzburg and Mozart
Anyone who loves classical music also loves Salzburg. The city has been strongly connected to music for quite some time. With the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1756, the connection became even stronger. The child prodigy Mozart became court concert master in 1769 and concert master at the age of 16. Salzburg is still strongly influenced by Mozart today and so you will find many places, streets, restaurants and monuments reminding you of Mozart on your city trip.
Tradition and modernity
But it was not only Mozart that made Salzburg famous. Salzburg's old town has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. The mix of spectacular architecture from the Baroque, Renaissance and Middle Ages simply has to be experienced. The perfect harmony of tradition and modernity makes the baroque city a gem, embedded in the magnificent panorama of the surrounding mountains.
Art and Culture
The flair of a Mediterranean baroque metropolis captivates not only by its beauty and elegance, but also by its youthfulness. The Salzburg Festival is the largest concert series in Salzburg and attracts music lovers anew every year. In addition to the Salzburg Festival, there are the Mozart Weeks in January, the Salzburg Easter Festival and the Salzburg Whitsun Festival.
We recommend city trips to Salzburg to all music lovers. After the classical concert in a cellar tavern and after an extensive stroll through the city in a dignified setting, you can indulge in the culinary delights.
