Project Description

Salzburg

Nestled on the banks of the River Salzach, and within view of the mountains of the Austrian Lake District. Art lovers call it the Golden City of High Baroque; historians refer to it as the Florence of the North or the German Rome.

Dreaming spires, sublime beauty, green hills, snow-white mountain tops and romantic gardens are just a few of the reasons why this city, the birthplace of Mozart, is loved by millions. With its imposing fortress, quiet churches, cobbled streets and cosy cafes there is something for everyone.

Located in Domplatz (Cathedral Square), the Salzburger Dom cathedral, with its wonderful dome, frescoes and baroque statues, is one of the city’s main attractions. Also in the square is the Madonna Statue which was finished in 1771. No trip is complete without a tour of the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, located along the Getreidegasse. The museum contains a fascinating collection of some of his instruments, portraits and documentation of his life. For food lovers, Salzburg is like a real candy land! You will always find a delicious meal or treat on your plate that resembles a work of art!

Salzburg best time to visit

Best Time to visit

Salzburg is busy throughout the year and one of the most important ski destinations in Europe, offering lots of snow and high hotel prices. Best time to visit is September and October, when summer crowds return back to their usual routine, and you can enjoy affordable hotel deals and a beautiful view. Summer offers gorgeous weather, packed crowds and high prices. Whenever you go, make sure you pack an umbrella as rain showers are common throughout the year.

Salzburg budget hotels areas

Budget Hotels Areas

Salzburg offers a wide variety of accommodation, varying from perfectly preserved historic architectural buildings to stately baroque villas. The city centre and the neighbourhood of Riedenburg are fairly pricey, so if you are travelling on a budget you may consider avoiding them. For budget holidays, you may chose a hostel, or book a hotel in Anif, a small township in the south.
