Salzburg Holidays Overview


Salzburg was an independent city state that was ruled by extremely powerful archbishops up until the year 1816. The city and its old world churches, public squares and exotic architectural wonders have been beautifully preserved to this very day. Many tourists recognize the city as one of the best places to visit in Austria (the country of which it is a part of today) as Salzburg represents everything Austrian – right from its mesmerizing baroque architectures to a rich musical heritage to scintillating natural surroundings. However, what Salzburg is most famous for is its most famous son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Despite the fact that Mozart hasn’t lived in Salzburg for over 200 years, he still remains to be the city’s favourite son. The birthplace and residence of this iconic composer are extremely popular tourist attractions in the city. Those looking for something different can explore one of the Sound of Music tours and follow the footsteps of Von Trapps or explore the Old Town to check out its fabled baroque architecture and magnificent atmosphere.

Those not in the know should understand that Salzburg is considered to be storybook Austria. It is located next to the Salzach River and offers its visitors with a beautiful mix of old world sights and modern day entertainment that is sure to mesmerize and enthral the most rigid or the most avid travellers.

Salzburg holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Hohensalzburg Fortress
Mönchsberg 34
www.salzburg-burgen.at
What is it? The 11th-century Hohensalzburg Castle stands on a rocky outcrop approximately 394ft (120m) above the city. Although originally built by Archbishop Gebhard to repel attacks from the neighbouring Bavarians, the present-day fortress was largely rebuilt in the early 16th century by Archbishop Leonhard Von Keutschach who added the grand state apartments. Visitors can walk around the courtyard and outskirts of the fortress at no cost unless they take the guided tour around the state apartments. The tour finishes at two small museums (this is optional) that display a selection of weapons, uniforms and armour together with instruments of torture - such as the Schandmasken - which petty criminals had to don as punishment for their crimes. Hours of Operation: Open daily, admission times differ according to month, on average 9am to 6pm. Phone:842 43011

 

 

2. St Peter's Abbey
St. Peter Bezirk, Salzburg
What is it? If you only have time to visit one of Salzburg's many churches, make sure its the 9th-century St Peter's Abbey Church (Stiftkirche St Peter), one of Salzburg's most impressive Rococo buildings. The Peterskirche was built at the beginning of the 18th century on the foundations of the former church which was founded in 792. The ornate interior is more impressive than the exterior with high marble pillars and a magnificent frescoed ceiling. The ancient catacombs that were carved into the rock face by the early Christian inhabitants are accessible only through a short guided tour. Hours of Operation: Open daily; 6.30am-7pm (April-September), 6.30am-6pm (October-March) Phone:844 5780
