From shopping opportunities, art & culture to natural landscapes in the heart of the city of Salzburg

UNESCO world-heritage-listed culture between the mountain and the natural landscape

Did you know that the majority of Salzburg's historic old town is world-heritage listed with UNESCO? If you're wondering why, a visit to the city's churches and hidden squares will soon set you straight. Keep your eyes open and look around – there's plenty to explore. It's all happening in the looming fortress of the Festung Hohensalzburg, not to mention the famous alley of the Getreidegasse or the Residenzplatz outside the palace. If you want to venture off the tourist trail, explore the hidden alleyways or relax in one of the city's cosy cafes. And if the Salzburg weather decides to live up to its reputation, try a visit to the DomQuartier or one of the many other museums in the historic city centre.

Art, culture & festivals

You could be forgiven for thinking it's always festival time in Salzburg. The Salzburg Festival in summer is famous around the world, but the city is also home to the Easter Festival, Whitsun Festival and a week-long celebration of all things Mozart. But that's not all! The autumn season features Salzburg "culture days" and the Autumn Jazz event. Clearly, if you are a fan of art and culture, the city of Mozart is the place for you. No other city in the world offers such high-quality concerts, festivals and performances as the city on the Salzach river. Visitors can also enjoy a terrific range of concert halls and theatres offering sensational performances all year round.

A historic backdrop to your shopping adventure

What's the most-photographed location in Salzburg? You'll know it as soon as you see the rows of iron signs hanging in the Getreidegasse. The historic alleyway is the best-known shopping street in the city, inviting visitors to explore, shop and simply drift along and enjoy the experience. But don't stop there – on the other side of the Salzach river, in Linzergasse, you'll find plenty more fabulous shops and boutiques. Sometimes you can't even tell which cool designer stores are tucked away behind the historic shopfronts.
