Welcome to Salzburg
As the home of Mozart and the celebrated Salzburg Festival, as well as the setting for "The Sound of Music" in 1964, Salzburg is known worldwide as a musical city. Nestled in between the Kapuzinerberg and Monchsberg mountains on the Salzach River, Salzburg is visually stunning — recognized as much for its concentration of high baroque architecture as it is for the surrounding Alpine scenery.
