Salzburg Travel Guide

To many visitors Salzburg is synonymous with music. Whether it is the classical strains of a piano concerto or the throaty yodeling of Maria - the hills around Salzburg are truly alive with the sound of music! Though all Austrians know the story of the Von Trapps, very few have watched the popular movie ‘ Sound of Music’. But once you’re in the picturesque city of Salzburg you can’t help but hum the tunes of ‘doe a deer’ or other familiar songs made popular by the movie.

Apart from the musical heritage that Salzburg is steeped in, the natural beauty in which the city is set in is bound to enthrall you. The snow-laden Alps provide a perfect backdrop against which Salzburg’s skyline of church spires and schlosses show up. The baroque architecture of the medieval churches coupled with the crisp alpine air goes to make up the charm of Salzburg.

Salzburg is best known for being the birthplace of renowned composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
