Salzburg

Rock me Amadeus!

In Salzburg, Mozart's music is the food of love, and those living there continue to make considerable efforts to ensure the sonatas of Amadeus continue to play on. Mozart's birthplace, home, and "platz" in the historic city center all form the backdrop to the sense of music, art, and theater that emanates throughout the city. "Everyman" will find something that will please among the musical and theatrical offerings at the world-famous annual summer Salzburg Festival. Not one to rest on its cultural laurels, Salzburg offers regular musical performances at the city's premier venue for contemporary music, the Rockhouse, and is still an innovative hot spot for diverse disciplines such as dance and new media. If all else fails in the search for great entertainment, then pull out your lederhosen and head for the hills! For no discussion of the Austrian arts scene is complete without an obligatory mention of the city's Sound of Music connection. Download Julie Andrews on your iPod, and get thee to the Nonnberg Nunnery, one of the oldest in the world (Fräulein Maria was a novice there) or else hop on one of the available Sound of Music tours. A true fairy-tale city, Salzburg possesses its requisite share of cathedrals and castles, with the Salzburger Dom and the Residenz Palace providing a hearty dose of the charm of old Europe. At some point even cameras need to rest, so down a bag of Mozartkugel, grab a paddle and take advantage of the awesome opportunities available for kayaking, walking, and canyoning that are available near the city. For those of you lucky enough to be in Salzburg in the winter, the city is a gateway to numerous ski resorts.

  • Na ja, ist schon eine schöne Stadt, aber zu sehr auf Mozart fixiert. Etwas anderes als Mozart hat man hier kaum im Kopf und die damit verbundene Geldschneidere ist manchmal schon pervers. Bin gespannt, wann die Umbenennung in "Mozartstadt" kommt!

    If you want to admire Salzburg you definitely have to take a glance of the city from the Castle Hohensalzburg. From here you can see the town at 360°. Gardens, villas, rocks and mountains will amaze you. To get to the castle, the best way is to catch the funicular at the station close to the cathedral (Festungsgasse).
