When ready, browse vacation packages to Salzburg:

The Austrian city of #Salzburg is situated on the northern edge of the Alps, close to the border of Germany. Salzburg is the hometown of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and provided the settings for one of cinema’s most-adored musicals, The Sound Of Music. While on #vacation here, explore Hohensalzburg, one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval fortresses.

Explore the playful water features at Hellbrunn Palace and nature’s water features: Lake Wolfgang and Krimml Waterfall. For a waterfall with a difference, #visit the spa town of Bad Gastein, whose falls roar straight through the heart of town. Take a cable car to the summit of Stubnerkogel Mountain and walk Europe’s highest suspension bridge.

From its salt mines to its symphonies, from its fountains to its waterfalls, Salzburg plays out like a living opera, filled with drama, comedy, intrigue and passion.

For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.
