Hellbrunn castle

Cultural highlight in the heart of Salzburg

Situated at the foot of the imposing Untersberg mountain, the charming Hellbrunn castle looks like something out of The Sound of Music. Its spectacular fountains in the landscaped gardens draw many visitors during the summer months.

The grounds also contain a zoo that is home to many animals native to the Alps.

The old town

Follow in Mozart's footsteps

Salzburg's medieval old town is full of famous sights. Tourists can visit the house where Mozart was born, stroll across the Domplatz square where the Salzburger Festspiele music festival is held each summer, or simply admire the wrought iron signs that line the famous Getreidegasse. After all that sightseeing and shopping, why not head to one of the cosy cafés for coffee and cake?

There really is so much to see and do during a day out in Salzburg. An absolute must is a trip up to the mighty fortress that overlooks Salzburg, where guests can enjoy great views of the city below and the surrounding mountains.
