Salzburg

Austria with an Italian Twist

Salzburg is Baroque architecture, sub-alpine scenery and a year round celebration of its most famous son, Mozart. A picturesque city nestled on the banks of the Salzach River, the best vistas can be enjoyed from the dizzying heights of the Hohensalzburg Fortress. Alternatively, you could try the cliff-top cafe of the Museum der Moderne.

Enjoy a beer brewed to an old-secret recipe according to traditional craft skills of the Augustinian monks and served in ceramic mugs at the Augustiner Braustubl, a huge 1000-seat beer garden with a lively atmosphere.
