Even when you live here you find something beautiful and "new" every time you take your time to enjoy the city. You can find houses built in the 13th century or even earlier, still occupied. Or Salzburgs oldest brewery Stiegl, brewing the famous beer since...More

The Old town of Salzburg is a World heritage site. We enjoyed the well preserved Baroque architecture, monuments and churches.

Nice place to walk, pretty nice and old. The tunnel is around the corner from this place. You can walk on the walking tunnel to the other side

Salzburg is really worth a visit. It's a short ride from Munich and really well kept and well preserved old cities. You don't need to go to museums though there are a few paying sites that are worth paying for. Just walk around, have a...More

Hi, just wondering where to stay in Salzburg? We will be a family of 4, 2 adults, 2 teenage children travelling there for the first time. Initially we were going to stay in an apartment, but now considering a hotel as they may be more centrally located. Many of the apartments also seem to be located outside of the main centre. Ideally we like to be close to restaurants and cafes, with sights able to be easily reached. Thanks in advance, Jo
