The city of Salzburg has been called 'the heart of the heart of Europe'. This is not an accolade you should dismiss, as the city really is an untainted gem. Salzburg is the city of Mozart, who was born here in 1756, and the composer's association with the city continues to draw tourists each year. The old town, labyrinthine in design and adorned with glorious buildings, is beloved by all that have had the good fortune to visit. In addition, the surrounding valleys, rivers and castles offer the visitor the chance to explore.

A walking tour should be on the agenda for all visitors as the city is compact and the streets are friendly. Explore the streets, which are lined with fabulous old houses; or alternatively, visit the many museums. The museum of Mozart offers comprehensive tours and delineates the history of the musical genius.

The environs of Salzburg are pleasant and offer fabulous scenic views. The region is a setting of antiquated castles, charming villages, pristine lakes, salt mines, enormous ice caves and some of the most stunning alpine scenery in Europe. It's the home of skiing, offering resorts to suit the most avid skiers. A driving tour of the city's surrounding countryside is a must.

Salzburg sits on the banks of the Salzach River and is the former site of the Roman town of Juvavum. Located in the Land of Salzburg, the city is, without doubt, the most beautiful place in the area. Its panoramic views include a backdrop of mountains and deep valleys.

Salzburg was part of the Roman Empire before becoming part of Austria in 1816. The city prospered in the 17th and 18th centuries, and the architecture of those days still remains as a testament to the times. In 1756, Mozart was born here; he had a massive influence in the city and throughout Europe, engaging people with his genius and sometimes-fanatical views.

Driving in Austria is a pleasure, with easy-to-follow routes threading through all the larger towns and cities. Salzburg is well served by IC (InterCity) and EC (EuroCity) train services, and buses run in every direction throughout Austria. There's an international airport in Salzburg and one in nearby Vienna.
