The provincial capital of Salzburg is worth a visit in every season. In spring, when the coffee houses set their tables in front of the door and the magnolias are in full bloom all over the gardens. In summer, when the Everyman stage covers the cathedral square and the beautifully dressed festival guests stroll through the city. During autumn, when the leaves on the Mönchsberg and the Kapuzinerberg change color and the first Chestnut roasters set up their ovens. And in winter, when the large and small festively illuminated Christmas markets offer their goods. Today, the city attracts countless tourists every year.
Salzburg is a World Heritage City. Mozart’s birthplace. The location of The Sound of Music. The meeting place for top culture at the annual Festival. And interspersed between are spacious squares, hidden inner courtyards, small alleyways and two mountains in the middle of the city. To describe the city with just one word is impossible.
