Really nice to finally visit this beautiful place. Lots of tourists and too crowded. Best to choose a time with less tourists.

One needs to walk through this area to get the feel of the old town with narrow lanes dotred with numerous small cafes & souvenere shops. The architecture & the maintenance was commendable.

The centre is nice and historical, many people there and most of things are influenced by Mozart. Good to see.

This is pretty much what you're coming to Salzburg for. If it doesn't...More

Salzburg is a very interesting place being Mozart's birthplace and home and the movie shoot location for the Sound of Music. It's castles, churches and general scenery are quite beautiful. We did a bike tour and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The Salzburger Altstadt [old part of the City] has plenty of cobbled streets and plazas, with lots of shops and the usual Restaurants around. I will come back.

I lived in Salzburg in 1995 while going to university and even though I’ve been in the Altstadt dozens of times, I’m still discovering new things every time I go back. The volume of tourists is killing the quaint charm I remember. Sure Getreidegasse was...More

The old town is worth having a stroll around, getting lunch and enjoying the area. An afternoon is probably sufficient, as it is quite a small area.

We enjoyed strolling the streets and enjoying the sights. Very clean and safe. Yes, the origins of Salzburg are related to salt, which was a valuable commodity in ancient times. Wealth from the salt trade contributed to the building of the castles, churches and other...More
