Rome of the North

Surrounded by mountain ranges and boasting a well-preserved city center, Salzburg melds culture and history. As the birthplace of Mozart and the setting for the movie The Sound of Music, the city enjoys a history of producing universally beloved music. Salzburg has been inhabited since the Neolithic Age, and visitors can see some of that history at Altstadt (the city center, a World Heritage Site). Salzburg’s gourmet food scene, its quickly developing arts scene, and its elegant Baroque architecture round out the city. Use our international travel planner: Salzburg and all its delights await.

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.
