The festival city of Salzburg, birthplace of Mozart, owes its worldwide fame to the incomparable charm of its old town, its architecture, and last but not least the scenic beauty of its surroundings. Mozart’s birthplace, the Hohensalzburg fortress, the Pferdeschwemme horse well, as well as many charming inns, cafés and shopping opportunities make a trip to Salzburg more than worthwhile.
