Salzburg from Munich
The birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Salzburg is where the gifted composer wrote and premiered many of his masterpieces. In homage to the maestro, there are reminders all over the city from the cathedral where he was baptized, to his childhood home.
Recognised as the UNESCO World Heritage-listed old town, Salzburg is also known for its appearance in the famous 1965 film The Sound of Music. Interestingly the real-life von Trapp family really did hail from Salzburg but many Austrians do not know the film. Nonetheless you can see numerous locations, including the gardens of the Mirabell Palace and the forbidding fortress.
Salzburg’s main museum displays most of the city’s fascinating history, while the Residenzgalerie holds many of its great art treasures. Away from the town centre, Schloss Hellbrunn is a testament to refined aristocratic taste.
