Salzburg, a fairy tale Alpine town, became popular with travelers largely because of the all-time classic family musical, The Sound of Music. This picturesque town in the Eastern Alps bordering Germany is named after the lovely Salzach River, which runs through it. Salzburg is also popular with travelers from around the world as the birthplace of the musical genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mozart’s old family home has been lovingly preserved as a museum in the Altstadt or Old Town. Salzburg has proudly preserved its musical heritage to this day by holding classical concerts on nearly every day of the year. Elegant Baroque buildings, medieval church spires, lovely shaded parks, and stone-paved little streets make up this picture-perfect Austrian gem. Sample the delicious street food at the Alter Markt or Old Market Square, feasting on Wiener schnitzels, Tafelspitz, and Austrian pretzels, before dropping by the city’s many beer gardens.
