Salzburg


Salzburg, surrounded by magnificent Alpine scenery, boasts one of the world's most striking cityscapes - a medieval fortress perched above a perfectly preserved baroque inner city filled with architectural wonders. With only 150,000 inhabitants, Salzburg is one if Europe's leading cultural centers, especially for classical music. Mozart was born here, and Salzburg boasts one of the grandest music festivals in the world. A short journey by train or car from Munich, it's a convenient stop for anyone traveling from Germany to Vienna or Italy. Like most European cities, it's divided by a river, the Salzach. The names of the town and river derive from the region's salt mines, which brought Salzburg fame and fortune and are now popular attractions.
