Salzburg is a popular city of Mozart, a pearl of world culture. This is how this fairy tale city is located in the Alps, in northwestern Austria. Salzburg is a magical place that attracts tourists from all over the world.
The picturesque location, monuments, specific atmosphere and the ubiquitous spirit of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart create the unique atmosphere of this alpine city. However, Salzburg is not just Mozart. It is above all a beautiful city full of churches, palaces, monasteries and tenements at the highest artistic level from various eras. Admiring this diversity and the multitude of exceptions, it is not surprising that the Old Town was inscribed in 1996 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The most dignified and the most powerful building in the city is the Hohensalzburg fortress, towering above the Old Town, on the Mönchsberg hill. It is a symbol and the hallmark of Salzburg, and at the same time the largest preserved fortress in Europe. From the castle hill to the city, you can take the cable-rail railway, which dates back to the end of the 19th century. The train will take us almost directly to Kapitelplatz and from there we will go to Domplatz where the cathedral is located. This is the first Baroque building in the north of the Alps with beautiful organs played by the most famous son of Salzburg, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
