Salzburg Mini-Guide

Salzburg means salt castle because in days gone by salt used to be carried up the Salzach River to this city in central Austria. Today Salzburg is best known as being the setting for the movie The Sound of Music, and the home of Mozart. To find out more about Mozart why not visit his Geburtshaus (place of birth)? Used by Mozart and his family during the 18th century and located in the heart of Salzburg this is interesting and full of memorabilia.

Salzburg Old Town

The international airport at Salzburg has been named after the great composer. Salzburg W.A. Mozart International and is well connected to major European cities such as Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris. There are also a number of flights to destinations in the United Kingdom such as Birmingham, Coventry and London. It is the fourth largest city in Austria and one of the best preserved with many beautiful monuments leading it to be designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wherever you are you are sure to see the imposing Hohensalzburg fortress which is perched above Salzburg.

Hohensalzburg Castle in Salzburg

Many people go to Salzburg to take advantage of great Alpine skiing, but even if you are not a skier you may wish to request the optional extras of having snow tyres on your vehicle during the winter months (October to March).  It is possible to drive to Salzburg from another ski haven – Munich in Germany – on the A8 autobahn, or to Austria’s capital Vienna on the A1. Having a map is a good idea as the place names on the signs are indecipherable having been written in a tiny German font.

Mirabell Palace and Gardens

If you are going to Salzburg with your family, maybe on a skiing holiday, there are some good activities for the kids. You can take them to the giant chess board near the cathedral, the Museum of Natural History (at Museumplatz 5, children over four pay two and a half euros), or the Salzburg Zoo.

In terms of places to stay there is a huge choice of accommodation in Salzburg, from hotels to guest houses and backpacker hostels. Most of these can be found on the internet. If you go along the A1 towards Vienna but come off at Salzburg Nord you will even come across a well appointed camp site.
