Surrounded by mountain ranges and boasting a well-preserved city center, Salzburg melds culture and history.
Start off your visit on the 14th (Sat): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Peter's Abbey (Stift St. Peter), step into the grandiose world of Fortress Hohensalzburg Castle, then admire the landmark architecture of Salzburg Cathedral, and finally stroll through Mirabell Palace. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate the long history of Salzburger Altstadt, explore the historical opulence of Schloss Hellbrunn, then take an in-depth tour of Mozarts Geburtshaus, and finally shop like a local with Getreidegasse.
