Pay attention to the skillfully crafted guild signs above restaurants, shops, and workshops. You can walk by the birth house of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart at Getreidegasse 9, where the great composer lived until he was 17.

  • Awesome Apfelstrudel and Cheesestrudel, and good coffee too! Small beatiful bar with so many cakes to choose.
  • Nice street full of shops
  • Tourist trap? You betcha! But this is an incredibly romantic street, especially at night when everything is lit up.
  • Fantastic scenery, mountains all around. Definitely a place to visit.
  • Great place!

Where to stay in Salzburg

There’s no better area to stay in the city where Mozart was born than the historical city center, a World Heritage Site. Salzburg's hub offers comfortable accommodations nestled between a rich array of sights. The Salzach River cuts directly through town, dividing the city into east and west. Look for accommodations in the Altstadt, tucked in between the river and the city’s mountain, Monchsberg. For budget-minded travelers, try a centrally located youth hostel or small hotel. If price isn’t an issue, splurge on Austrian luxury in an upscale hotel.
