    There are many small shops (but also many big chains are represented). But something has to stroll the flair here by the road. We are first in the morning through walked on the way to the Cathedral and the fortress, it was still quite manageable. In the afternoon on the way back, it was extremely full.

    Tourist trap? You betcha! But this is an incredibly romantic street, especially at night when everything is lit up.

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.
