More about Salzburg

Salzburg, the fourth-largest city in Austria and the capital of the federal state of Salzburg is located on the banks of the Salzach River. Its "Old Town" (Altstadt) with its world famous baroque architecture is one of the best-preserved city centers north of the Alps and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. With three universities  Salzburg is filled with the liveliness of a large student population.

The Altstadt, or "old town", is dominated by its baroque towers and churches and the massive Festung Hohensalzburg sourrounded by two smaller mountains, the Mönchsberg and Kapuzinerberg, which act as the "green" lungs of the city.

Some of the most interesting sights are:

    * The Salzburg Cathedral (Salzburger Dom)
    * The Hohensalzburg Castle (Festung Hohensalzburg) on a hill dominating the old town and one of the largest castles in Europe with wonderful views over Salzburg.
    * The Franziskanerchurch
    * The St. Peter cemetery
    * The "Residenz" Palace (the magnificent former Prince-Archbishop's residence)
    * Mozart's Birthplace and Mozart's Residence
    * The University Church
    * The Getreidegasse
    * The palace of Mirabell with its wide gardens full of flowers
    * The palace of Leopoldskron, a rococo palace and a national historic monument
