Surrounded by mountain ranges and boasting a well-preserved city center, Salzburg melds culture and history.
Take a break from the city and head to Gollinger Wasserfall and Reiterkogelbahn. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Old City Hall (Altes Rathaus) and Kollegienkirche (Collegiate Church). Get out of town with these interesting Salzburg side-trips: Der Talschluss (in Saalbach-Hinterglemm), Rattenberg - Medieval pedestrian zone (in Rattenberg) and Tratzberg Castle (in Jenbach). There's still lots to do: take some stellar pictures from Fortress Hohensalzburg, steep yourself in history at Mozart Residence (Mozart Wohnhaus), admire the striking features of Salzburg Cathedral, and explore the historical opulence of Schloss Hellbrunn.
