Large parts of Salzburg's Old Town are UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Large parts of Salzburg's old town are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. A city walk will take you to some of the most beautiful sights you should not miss on your day trip to Salzburg. The Hohensalzburg fortress, visible from afar, towers over the city.

The first way should lead up there on foot or via the fortress railway. The perfect overview and a tremendous panorama in all directions await you in the largest completely preserved castle in Central Europe. You can also explore the princely rooms on a guided tour, learn something in the museums, enjoy the view over the city or attend one of the fortress concerts.

The Salzburg Cathedral takes your breath away from the outside as from the inside: as one of the largest domed buildings north of the Alps, with space for up to 10,000 visitors, with the tombs of the archbishops in the crypt, with several organs and with a main nave height of 32 metres, one inevitably asks oneself how people could build something like this. On the upper floors there are parts of the newly built "Domquartier". Further churches of the old town: But it is also impressive in which large number the churches stand here together.

Right next to the cathedral, one finds the baroque-laden St. Peter's Church, the cave-like Franciscan Church and the second large domed building of the city, the Kollegienkirche. You can also visit the Nonnberg Monastery, the Trinity Church (near Mirabellplatz) or the Müllner Church with one of the most beautiful gardens in the adjacent monastery brewery.

The Getreidegasse is famous with its many iron signs, through houses, historical buildings and as the centre of the former trade. Mozart's birthplace is located here as well as numerous boutiques and cafés.
