Surrounded by mountain ranges and boasting a well-preserved city center, Salzburg melds culture and history.
Step off the beaten path and head to Schloss Hellbrunn and DomQuartier Salzburg - More than a museum. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fortress Hohensalzburg and St. Peter's Abbey (Stift St. Peter). Take a break from Salzburg with a short trip to Gollinger Wasserfall in Golling an der Salzach, about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Old City Hall (Altes Rathaus), pause for some serene contemplation at Franziskanerkirche, get engrossed in the history at Mozarts Geburtshaus, and don't miss a visit to Salzburger Altstadt.
