Salzburg, Austria

Salzburg: the city of music. The city where music is always in the air!

Listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, the fourth largest city in Austria offers magical sceneries with the backdrop of the Alps that scrape the sky. The churches, the squares, the narrow cobbled lanes…
First thing to notice while wandering around town is the magical atmosphere that’s created by the harmony of the classical music that whisks out of every single corner of the side streets.
This Baroque Old Town is deservedly called the “Rome of the North” due to its dramatic architectural layout.

Must-Visit: Hohensalzburg Fortress, Mirabell Palace and Gardens, the DomQuartier, Mozart’s Residence and the banks of the Salzach River (better on a sunny day).

Must-Dine: Zum Fidelen Affen, a restaurant with an amazing atmosphere, cosy wood-panelled walls and incredibly delicious local food. And beer, of course 😉
