Since this central district contains some of the most popular attractions like Mozart's Birthplace and Salzburg Museum, you will undoubtedly spend hours here. We urge you not to rush through it, however, but instead savor the web of narrow streets and discover its urban beauty.
Explore the Judengasse (the Jewish District) and examine the St. Florian Fountain in the Alter Markt, a marketplace dating back to the 13th century.
