Welcome to Salzburg
The city of Salzburg gained international fame by its festivals:
- Easter Festival
- Whitsun Festival
- Salzburg Festival (July - August),
- the production and the music of the film 'Sound of Music',
- the composer and native son Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and
- the cityscape of the Old Town which is dominated by the cathedral and other churches and residences in baroque style. The old town was placed on UNESCO's list of the world's cultural and natural heritage in 1997.
Throughout centuries Salzburg's archbishops have contributed greatly to the impressive appearance of their city. The old town of Salzburg survived to a great extent until today.
Salzburg has so much to look at: the Cathedral in early baroque style, the 'Residenz' Palace, the Collegiate Church and Abbey of St Peter, St Peter's Cementry with the catacombs, the Nonnberg Benedictine Abbey (which is still inhabited by nuns) with the late gothic church, the mighty Fortress Hohensalzburg, the 'Kollegien' church which was built by Fischer von Erlach, the 'Mirabell' Palace with the Mirabell Garden - an example of baroque horticulture - and of course Mozart's birthplace at Getreidegasse 9 and Mozarts House at the Makart Platz. These houses are open for visitors and show interesting exhibitions.
Even now Salzburg is worth to visit, to discover the sights and the attractions and enjoying the cultural events and exhibitions.
Alexander von Humboldt praised Salzburg as being 'one of the three most beautiful regions in the world'.
