Explore the Mozart city with it's phenomenal highlights

Salzburg is proud of its past. As an ecclesiastical principality which enjoyed the exclusive status of being responsible to the Emperor directly, Salzburg was ruled by archbishops, uniting both secular and ecclesiastical power.

The modern city is located on the site of Roman Juvavum, a settlement which grew up on one of the major military roads of the ancient world. After the collapse of Rome, centuries passed until, in 696, Bishop Rupert founded the city new. The face of the contemporary Salzburg, dominated by the baroque majesty of the old city, was created in the 17th and 18th centuries.

It was then that the Prince-Archbishops Wolf Dietrich, Markus Sittikus and Paris Lodron realized their major building programmes, thereby leaving an indelible mark on the architecture of the city. Even today, over one hundred churches, castles and palaces bear witness to the power of the Salzburg archbishops.

Follow the footprints of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, learn more about the world famous film "The Sound of Music", explore the historical buildings and hear funny stories of our Archbishops.

We are happy to arrange your private tour according to your personal interests. A few suggestions: Leopoldskron Palace (from the outside), Hellbrunn Palace (from the outside), photo stops in the old town of Salzburg, Mirabell Gardens, Gaisberg, Maria Plain, Hangar-7 and many more.
