One thing that no visit to Salzburg should be without: a visit to Mozart's birthplace! The world-famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart saw the light of day in the middle of the old town in the famous Getreidegasse Salzburg and grew up in the city. After a short walk from Salzburg's old town along the Salzach, you have already arrived at the famous house and can learn more about Mozart and his life's work.
He moved within the city during his youth, but Mozart's home is only a five-minute walk from the birthplace and can also be visited.
As Mozart's Birthplace is one of the most visited museums in the city, it's worth booking tickets in advance. One option for this is the Salzburg Card, which gives you access to all of the city's attractions at a reduced price.

The House of Nature Salzburg is located in the heart of the city and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nature is presented in its most beautiful form in 80 exhibitions. The House of Nature is particularly suitable for a visit with children.
A little tip: on Mondays and Thursdays you can watch the animals being fed live on site! It is best to visit the House of Nature on one of the two days and perhaps directly after a visit to Mozart's birthplace, which is only a six-minute walk away. In addition to the Haus der Natur, animal lovers can also make a detour to the Hellbrunn Zoo in Salzburg.
You don't want to miss this: the magnificent buildings of Salzburg such as the Mirabell Palace and the associated Mirabell Gardens. Admission is even free. Incidentally, the Mozart family had their music room here. A large fountain in the garden and a beautiful marble hall inside the castle will make your visit to the castle unforgettable.
Probably the best view of the entire city is from the Hohensalzburg Fortress, which is enthroned on a hill above the city. The best way to get to the fortress is with the fortress railway, but it is also possible to climb up on foot. The fortress includes a must-see golden ballroom. And in winter, a magical Christmas market takes place in the fortress, bathing the Salzburg sight in sparkling lights.
Many Salzburg activities are particularly exciting for those interested in culture. Because with the large number of museums and castles, there is a lot to do in the city in this area.

And all of that on the Domplatz directly at the Salzburg Cathedral! This impressive building alone is worth a visit.
In addition to the many cultural offerings in the greater Salzburg area, there is also the opportunity to explore the breathtaking nature of the Salzburg region on a day trip. In about two hours by car from Salzburg you can reach the highest waterfalls in Europe, the Krimml Waterfalls. But the nature in the vicinity of the city should not be underestimated either: Because the Salzburger Land is ideal for skiing and convinces with a large selection of ski areas for every level. Untersberg is a rather small ski area, but it is the closest to the city at only 10 kilometers from Salzburg.
