Salzburg, Austria:

 

Language: German (Deutsch) with some very basic English.
Suggested Length of Stay: Salzburg is a city that you can tour the heart of in 1 day, but we suggest 2-3 full days to really get the best experience.

 

Gaining wealth from the surround salt mines, Salzburg has been able to stay out of most war time conflicts to remain one of the most well preserved Central European cities. Salzburg is scenic, cozy, and home of Mozart, the beautiful Mirabell Gardens & Palace, and the back drop for The Sound of Music. While it might seem quaint, the city tucked into the Alps is actually the forth largest city in Austria.

Overview of the Old Town Salzburg:
Salzburg’s Old Town, known as Altstadt, has a beautiful Alpine setting which has not only been home to Mozart but also the setting for the Sound of Music.  The city center has retained it graceful Baroque architecture by avoiding the conflict of The 30 Years War and by suffer only minor damage during WW2.  Because it still holds much of its old world charm, Salzburg’s Old Town is one of only 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Austria.
We like to start this walk early in the morning, sometimes even right at 8am when the Mirabell Palace Gardens are opening.  Starting early is a great way to avoid feeling rushed throughout the day and will give you you plenty of extra time to explorer sights longer or even to shop on Getreidegasse.
