I love travelling to Austria and have endearing memories of visits to Vienna and Ischgl. Another place to visit in this beautiful country is no doubt Mozart hometown, Salzburg.

If you’re looking for a city that offers European history and culture, then Salzburg is the place for you.

Salzburg is a beautiful city in Austria, known for its baroque architecture and stunning mountain views. It’s the perfect place to visit if you’re looking to explore European history and culture.

Summer is juts around the corner and Americans love to travel to Europe when it is hot and sunny. If you’re planning a trip to Salzburg, here are some top attractions that should be on your must-do list: Hohensalzburg Castle, Mirabell Palace and Gardens, Salzburg Cathedral, The Mozart Residence Museum (where you can see where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived), Residenzplatz Square (with its impressive Baroque architecture), and many more!

Hohensalzburg Castle – This castle sits atop a hill overlooking the city and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area. It’s been used as a fortress since the 11th century, when it was built by Archbishop Gebhard von Helfenstein. Today, it’s one of the most popular spots in Salzburg to watch fireworks during New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Mirabell Palace and Gardens – This palace was built in the 17th century by Prince Archbishop Wolf Dietrich Raitenau. It features a lush garden with fountains and statues designed by famous Baroque architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. You can also see his work at St. Peter’s Church (Stiftskirche) nearby!

Salzburg Cathedral – This cathedral dates back to 1262 when it was first built on top of an earlier church building constructed in 1010 by Holy Roman Emperor Henry II

The best places to stay in Salzburg include Hotel Sacher Salzburg, Sheraton Grand Salzburg, Hilton Salzburg, Hotel Goldener Hirsch (where Mozart stayed), and many more!

Salzburg has an excellent public transportation system that includes buses, trains, and taxis. You can also rent a car if you prefer.

Planning your trip? Book early! It’s best to plan your trip in advance—be sure to book your hotel and transportation early so you don’t miss out on any of the best sights.
