Population:

Overview

The Austrian city of Salzburg has a population of about 150.000 inhabitants.
The birth of Salzburg dates back to the year 696 when the missionary St. Rubert arrived and founded the Benedictine Monastery of St. Peters. The city was an independent church state ruled by the Archbishop. The organization of the spiritual leader was Vatican-like and Salzburg was called the “Rome of the North”.
Salzburg is located between two mountains Kapuzinerberg and Mönchenberg and the River Salzach. The small alleys, the colorful town homes, the beautiful gardens and the numerous castles, palaces, churches and monastery give to the city a picturesque taste.

Overall Guide : In Salzburg you can visit the Fortress of Hohensalzburg which is over 900 years old is said to be one of the best preserved Medieval Fortress all over Europe. Another very famous building is the city’s most impressive... more church St. Sebastian, built in the Gothic style. Salzburg is also the home of music. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg and lived here. Thanks to the keenness for music of the Archbishops, Salzburg was a common stop for musicians all over the world and fortunately this tradition has gone forward over the centuries. Today Salzburg is still known for its annual Festival “Salzburger Festspiele” which offers a diversity of operas, concerts and theater plays. Further the city is a popular place for musical and theatrical education and its schools are attended from many students all over the world.

Overall Guide : 33 YEARS IN SALZBURG, it's beautiful, but it's expensive for tourists if you don't know where to go ... I RECOMMEND Lunch for 7-8 euro at the FINANZAMT (it's a great canteen and bar overlooking the pond in the park)... more 1km away from the centre, in the direction of AIGEN. Laschenskyhof (5km away) is very good. Take a tour of the lakes up to WOLLFANGSEE (80km) and continue 20km to HALLSTATT (gorgeous), GOSSAUSEE (wonderful).

Overall Guide : Beautiful place. Lots of sights to see. Very clean, felt very safe. Great food and I'm a bit fussy about eating in other countries. Did not find it a costly place. Totally enjoyed my time there, cannot wait to return.
Not to be missed Salzburg Fortress , Getreidegasse , Mozart Residence (Mozart Wohnhaus)

Overall Guide : If you have time to visit more than 2 attractions in the city (for example: the fortress, Mozart's birthplace and house) it's cheaper to buy a Salzburgcard that grants you entry to almost all the sights and public transport at... more a cost of 20 Euros for 24 hours.

Overall Guide : There are beautiful landscapes and the city is beautiful and quaint, full of sights to see, starting from Mozart's house, where there is a museum. The historical centre is traditional-looking. Also worth seeing is the impressive castle, which you can... more get to by a cable car.
