One of the most charming cities I have ever had the good fortune to visit. It's easily walkable through winding streets and alleys all lined with impeccably maintained architecture. It's simply beautiful, even on a cold and rainy day. Just take your time to explore every street, stop into cafes and shops. It's quite small and can easily be explored... More

It's a great place to walk around and get a sense of history of the town. They're proud of their local heroes and culture and you can see that evidently when you walk around the old town. The area has many quaint coffee shops and cafes hidden in nooks and crannies. But be aware that you'll usually be among a... More

We found it accidentally on our way to Salzburg Cathedral (Dom) and we found it interesting as it is with the surrounding area. Very nice curved buildings in the mountains, very accessible by walking, with nice views, the fountain is covered in plastic like the most of the statues in the area, assuming for the weather conditions, but is worth...

Old Salzburg is a lovely place. It's a clean city and a peaceful, cozy one. Indeed, there weren't too many tourists in early October.

We were lucky to visit the city in a time where less tourist flooded the streets. Nice streets, beautiful buildings and of course everything around Mozart and "the sound of music"

Most of Salzburg's buildings of interest are located here, in a compact area easily covered on foot. And just over a bridge is the new city, with the rest of the things to see within easy reach.

The old town is obviously unique and you need time just to wander and explore and look for the things that you find interesting along the cobbled street areas and the more smart shop areas. Very clean and well managed for tourists but make sure you have reasonable footwear as this is definitely not flip flop or soft sandal country.... More

It is very easy to just glimpse at these beautiful horses façade as you drive past. It is worth stopping a looking properly at this 17 century horse pond and the Pferdeschwemme- a statue in the well that was once used to water Archbishop’s horses. It is located in Karajan- Platz in the old city.
