What's Salzburg Like?
Salzburg is a destination with an immense amount of history which tourists will appreciate. The Hohensalzburg Fortress is an enormous castle that has truly stood the test of time since it was built in 1077. The fortress is one of the largest medieval castles in the world, and has a generous schedule for visitors. People can also visit Mozart's childhood home, which is a typical Austrian house built in the early 1700s and occupied by the Mozart family until 1773. The home features several instruments that belonged to Mozart and even a family portrait. Mozart's adult home is also available to visit on the other side of town. The Ice Caves of Werfen present visitors with an excellent view of the surrounding Alp mountain range and a view of the castle from the way up as well. The hike is somewhat strenuous, so visitors should check with their physician to make sure they can make the trek. Since Salzburg was the principal filming site for "The Sound of Music", many visitors will want to visit sights from that movie. The Nunnery at Nonnberg, which was founded in the 8th century and is one of the oldest in the world, is famous for it's role in a scene from the movie. The "Sound of Music" tour is also a popular activity for tourists to engage in.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Salzburg
As tourists may want to purchase souvenirs, it's useful to know that the shops often close very early, often even at 5 or 6 o'clock. Besides its great historical significance, Salzburg is renowned for it artistic culture; evidence of this can be seen on Getreidegasse, where visitors can purchase some ornate painted eggs. Be aware of the layout of the Salzburg city streets, which are mostly of the cobblestone variety. Since Austria is a city that is largely rooted in classical music, there will be plenty of street performers in the city. While German is the most common language spoken in Salzburg and Austria as a whole, English is widely spoken in tourist-heavy cities, although learning a few phrases in German is always appreciated by locals.
