Detailed information on Salzburg is available via the following link :
It is the playful lightness that makes Salzburg, the miniature metropolis, so distinctive. The enchanting silhouette of the Fortress, Cathedral and church steeples in this baroque city north of the Alps. So beautiful that it is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site. So famous that its attractions are among the most famous in the world.
Most of the sights can be seen on a stroll through Salzburg's historic city center: the Residence, the Carillon, the Cathedral, the Franciscan Church, Mozart Square, the Horse Pond, Hofstallgasse, Hohensalzburg Fortress, St. Peter's Monastery. The spirit of days gone past can be felt at every turn: the ages have left their mark on the churches, towers, façades, balustrades and galleries. Even the street names commemorate the people and events that shaped its history.
Palaces and parks
A number of palaces in the city and its vicinity beckon invitingly: Mirabell Palace, whose Marble Hall is used for wedding ceremonies, and the Mirabell Gardens, one of the most spectacular photo scenes in Salzburg. Hellbrunn Palace to the south of the city is known for its wondrous trick fountains in the summer and its charming Christmas market in the winter. Klessheim Palace in Wals, Leopoldskron Palace and Aigen Palace and its park are worth a trip into the countryside.
