Salzburg is the city of castles, spires and mountain peaks. This Austrian city has the Salzach River running through it, splitting it into the medieval old city or Altstadt and the contemporary new city or Neustadt. Mozart is one name that Salzburg is associated with. There's also the effervescent Sound Of Music that was shot in the alpine slopes around here. The city holds much for the romantic traveller and the nature lover.

Visit the birthplace and residence of the legendary composer, Mozart and explore Altstadt (Old City), taking in the baroque architecture. The movie "Sound of Music" was shot here, so take a special tour that will give you a peep into where it was shot. There are plenty of other places and adventures awaiting, such as the salt mine trek, underground lake cruise, and Austria holiday packages in this city, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.
