Best Things to Do in Salzburg
Would you rather live like a king or a world-renowned classical composer? If you choose the former, you'll find yourself at home in the Hellbrunn Palace, admiring furniture and the grounds, or in the Mirabell Gardens, perusing the flowers. If you prefer the artistic lifestyle, you'll enjoy touring the residences of Mozart and traversing the streets of Altstadt (Old Town), passing ancient marketplaces and restaurants on the way. Both the regal and the musical converge at the Salzburg Cathedral, the religious hub for centuries and a must-see for visitors.
