The festival city of Salzburg and its attractions
The diverse city on the Salzach
When the city of Salzburg is mentioned, most visitors immediately think of Mozart and the Salzburg festivals. And it's no wonder: the composer and musician is the figurehead of the city, and the festivals attract thousands of classical music fans to Salzburg each year. But there is so much more to discover. An overview will help you learn about all the wonderful attractions.
The city of Salzburg is divided into the left and right historic district by the Salzach. Awaiting you on both sides are important cultural sights and attractions.
Left side of the historic district of Salzburg
The famous panorama of the city, which is depicted on many postcards, comes from this side of the river. This is where the Salzburg cathedral, the Hohensalzburg castle, Mozart's birthplace, the Residenzplatz with its large Baroque fountain, and the well-known Getreidegasse, the city's shopping street, are located. Stroll through the Mozartplatz square and find a nice resting place in the sun or in one of the many coffeehouses in the historic district.
Right side of the historic district of Salzburg
The Linzergasse leads from the main bridge via a small square to the Franz-Josef-Straße. Branches in the road will bring you either towards the Steingasse, one of the city's oldest streets, or towards the Mirabell gardens. Here, you will find the wonderful Mirabell palace, which houses one of the most famous registrar's offices in the world, the Marble Hall.
Of course, there is much to discover outside the historic district such as Hellbrunn. The palace, with the impressive park and neighboring Zoo Hellbrunn, is an especially popular excursion destination for families.
