Day 4

City tour

Literally “salt fortress”, Salzburg is the capital of the state of Salzburg. It was for a long time independent, directed by a prince-archbishop, and was not attached to Austria until 1816, after having been part of Bavaria for six years. In short, Salzburg was not Austrian in Mozart’s time, but depended on the Holy Roman Empire!

It has been around 200 years since Mozart lived here, but he still remains Salzburg’s favorite son. You must visit the former residence and birthplace of Mozart and then explore the Altstadt (Old Town), Baroque influence. If your musical tastes are more lyrical than classical, join one of the many guided tours of the film locations of “The Sound of Music” and follow in the footsteps of the Von Trapps.

Salzburg is much more than the city of Mozart or the city of the Festival. In the most important places of interest of the city, you will be immersed in History, in captivating stories, in surprising tales.

To get an overview, you have to climb the funicular to the top of Hohensalzburg fortress (520 meters above sea level) to admire the 360 ​​° view.

An imposing medieval castle that overlooks the city, you will see a forest of baroque bell towers and domes that sometimes evoke an Italian city. In the UNESCO-protected Old Town, walk along the Greteidegasse (Sign Street), which stands out for its many wrought iron signs, attend a Mozart dinner concert in the oldest inn in Salzburg (Stiftskeller St Peter, which dates from 803), take a carriage ride (departure from the Residence). To admire one of the most beautiful views of the city while feasting, climb by elevator to the “m32”, a contemporary restaurant within the Mönchsberg Museum of Modern Art. We enjoy behind the bay window or directly on the terrace with a breathtaking view of the roofs of Salzburg.

Good things to see and visit in Salzburg:

The citadel of Hohensalzburg (built in 1077), the clock tower, the residence of the archbishops, renovated in 2016 under the name of Dom Quartier and home to fascinating museums (ceremonial rooms, painting gallery including the famous painting of Rembrand representing his mother), all connected to the cathedral (nicknamed the Dome), the church of the Benedictines, mixing baroque style and renaissance, the birthplace of Mozart (Mozarteum museum), another house museum where he lived later , the statue of Mozart, the house of Joseph Mohr, the composer of the famous Christmas song “Sweet Night Holy Night” (which still houses the score played for the first time at the Christmas Mass in 1818 in Oberndorf), the Salzburg Museum (the oldest and largest museum in Salzburg located in the heart of the city), the Museum of Modern Art, perched on the Mönchsberg hill, offering panoramic views.

Every year, Salzburg hosts an important classical music festival dedicated to Mozart, a native of the city, just like Herbert Von Karajan.

It must be said that the summer festival from late July to late August, is the most prestigious classical music festival in the world!
