About Salzburg

Picture of Salzburg
The city of Salzburg

Salzburg is the fourth-largest city (150,000 inhabitants) in Austria and the capital of the federal State of Salzburg. Salzburg’s “Old Town” with its picturesque baroque architecture is one of the best-preserved historical city centres north of the Alps and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is the most famous son of Salzburg. The great Austrian poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal who founded together with Max Reinhardt and Richard Strauss “The Salzburg Festival” said, “Salzburg is the heart of the heart of Europe. It lies halfway between South and North, between Switzerland and the Slavic countries.”

Due to its geographical position Salzburg is a very important traffic junction.
