Old Town

Old Town is a place of such unbelievable beauty that many visitors exclaim how lovely it looks when they first see it. Imagine an area with a picturesque castle, Hohensalzburg Castle on top of a mountain and a majestic square right in the middle of town. The castle happens to be one of the biggest medieval castles in Europe. For architectural history buffs, a walk through this compact town is a must. Furthermore, the opportunity to stop for some of Europe's best strudels, together with a cup of delicious coffee at Cafe Tomaselli in Salzburg will top off the day.

  • Take a stroll along Getriedegasse, one of the busiest and oldest streets in Salzburg - drop over at house number 9 to check out the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and buy some puppets or Mozart items in this part of Old Town.
  • Check out Salzburg Cathedral, a 17th century church where Mozart was baptised - the church has baroque style architecture.
  • Go to Residenzplatz, a huge and majestic square to view the biggest fountain of baroque style in entire Europe - this exquisite fountain is believed to have been builtbetween1656 and1661.

If you arrived at W.A. Mozart Airport, take a bus or taxi to visit Old Town, located 3 kilometres away. Salzburg city is divided into two by Salzach River. The New Town is located on its right bank while the Old Town or "Altstadt" is situated on its left. If you have luggage with you, the best way to go there is by taxi. The ride from the airport is around 10 minutes. Another option is to take trolleybus 2 from the airport to New Town. Then, walk for 20 minutes, crossing the pedestrian bridge to reach "Altstadt".
