Salzburg's landmark, is Central Europe’s largest intact fortress and offers fantastic views of the city. Visit the Princely Residence, a magnificent early baroque edifice with splendid halls and a gallery featuring European paintings dating between the 16th and 19th century. The nearby vast Salzburg Dom is, without doubt, the main attraction of the old town. Inside you'll find the Romanesque font where Mozart was baptized.
Salzburg – meaning “Salt Fortress” – earned its fortune when nearby salt mines were established under the Roman Empire. Salzburg sits snuggly in the eastern Alps, close to the border with Germany and is surrounded by three peaks: Mönhsberg, Gaisberg and Kapuzinerberg. The Ski Amadé area, Seefeld and Kitzbühel are easily accessible.
