Magnificently set below a medieval fortress, Salzburg is one of Europe’s loveliest cities and the birthplace of Mozart. On the banks of the river Salzach and surrounded by mountains, Salzburg’s picturesque and historic old city is a recognised World Heritage site. On the left bank of the river between the Mönchsberg and Festungsberg lie a maze of narrow cobbled streets, arcaded courtyards and grand tall houses contrasting beautifully with the Cathedral and Residenz Palace from the Baroque, Rococo and Neo-Classical periods. Art galleries, gardens and museums are also plentiful. Additionally, the Salzburg Music Festival takes place every year in August and is the city’s premier event.
5 June, 18 July & 31 August
Each summer, the fairy tale streets of Salzburg are alive with the sounds of Mozart at the Salzburg Festival. Featuring opera, concerts and drama, the Festival enjoys worldwide recognition as one of the most outstanding classical music events today. The Festival takes place in various venues throughout the city, but the main attractions are located around Cathedral Square.
