Altstadt von Salzburg, Salzburg

Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 6,000+ reviews on the web
Surrounded by Monchsberg fortress and with the Salzach River winding its way through this World Heritage Site, Altstadt von Salzburg represents an architectural mix of buildings. The river splits the town into two halves connected by a series of bridges. The left bank of the Salzach, where Roman buildings once stood, is older. Most of the core is pedestrian-only, so enjoy a stroll through the historic town's many narrow streets. The city wears its history on its streets, with buildings from the Middle Ages, Romanesque, Baroque, and Renaissance periods. Visit the fountain in Residence Square, the city's most famous square, and Mozart Square, a hometown tribute to the classical music legend.

  • 萨尔茨堡旧城区风貌以粮食胡同为代表,狭窄的街道,两旁是各类商店,人流如织,显的非常繁华,宏伟的教堂和城堡,有许多古迹,令人留连忘返,非常值得一游! 
  • Since 2006 when I visited Salzburg first time, almost every summer I spend my holiday here. I still love this part of the city, although is old, every year I discover something new. Old time atmosphere is combined with facilities that a modern city should offer and old building are kept almost original. Love this city and this region, all Salzkammergut.
  • Avoid early in the day if you are not happy in CROWDS tour groups evenings are better for remarkable street musicians, prosecco and wonderful pastries. Best pretzels in town @Kapital Platz "originaler brezelstand"
  • The old town of Salzburg is extremly beautiful, amd the Salzburg Castle untop of the hill is fantastic.
  • Beautiful place, with gorgeous landscape. The tour us very interesting
  • Beautiful and festive, historic Salzburg. Worth a visit and a walk around, especially across the bridge with all the locks left by various couples.
