Salzburg Attractions & Activities - The Best Holiday Destinations for 2020
This article is about the city of Salzburg. For the state, see Salzburg (state).
Salzburg is a city in central Austria, near the German (Bavarian) border with a population of some 148,000 in 2005. If you have seen the movie The Sound of Music , you may think you know all there is to see in Salzburg. Admittedly, it is difficult not to burst into songs when you're walking along the Salzach River, or climbing up to the Hohensalzburg fortress which looms over the city. But there is a lot more to this compact, courtly city than Julie Andrews and as Mozart's birthplace.
