Salzburg & Surroundings
You will find that Salzburg is truly alive with music. In 1756 the genius composer
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg. His former dwelling is the Mozart
Museum. Centuries ago the town had became affluent due to salt trade. Modern
visitors are captured by the romantic atmosphere at the banks of the river Salzach,
the Fortress Hohensalzburg towering above since 1077. The quaint stores in the
narrow passages and lanes are a shopper’s paradise. Charming traditional
Austrian coffee houses, elegant palaces and parks await you. For the annual
Salzburg Festival music lovers flock into town.
A tour to Salzburg also comprises highlights in the area, historic places reminiscent
of the Habsburg Empire and beautiful mountain lakes.
The “Sound of Music Tour” will take you to original spots where the von Trapp
Family once lived and where the famous motion-picture was filmed.
