How Far from?
Being the birthplace of Mozart itís no surprise there is plenty to see and do affiliated with the famous composer. >From the statue constructed in his honour in 1842 in Mozartplatz to his actual birthplace at Geitreidegasse number 9, now a shrine to his life, fans will have their thirst for all things Mozart quenched. Furthermore, concerts featuring his music are often performed by candlelight at the Gothic Hall in the Old Town.

Classical composers aside, musical fans can embark on a Sound of Music Tour, which offers more than Rogers and Hammersteinís music as it offers a tour of the wonderful landscapes that appear in the film, and an overview of some of the most important landmarks in the city.

The Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site, which contains the Schoenbrunn Palace and the Hohensalzburg Fortress, which was originally built in 1077. The latter is the biggest surviving castle in central Europe.

With a population of only 150,000, it may be small but Salzburg is considered one of the prettiest cities in Europe. The views of the cliffs of Monchsberg, the river Salzach, and the salt mines are making Salzburg an ever more popular destination for travelers through Europe.
