Salzburg City

Wellworth a visit and just a stone's throw away

Imposing buildings, countless artefacts of the “glory days” and, of course, churches – in Salzburg, there is something new to discover around practically every corner. The most striking sightseeing attractions include Salzburg Cathedral, Hohensalzburg Fortress,

the Alte Residenz, the Getreidegasse with Mozart’s birthplace, and the Festival District with the Grosses Festspielhaus concert hall, the Haus für Mozart and the Felsenreitschule.
