Day 2
Salzburg | Salzburg Salzburg

Explore historic Salzburg with a guided walking tour. One of the best preserved city centers in Europe, Salzburg was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
 The Hohensalzburg fortress, strategically located on a hill overlooking the old town, is one of the largest and most beautifully preserved medieval castles in Europe.

Visit the Salzburg Cathedral, a 17th century Baroque building which was the site of Mozart’s baptism, dedicated to St. Rupert – Salzburg’s patron saint. St. Rupert was the founder of the city, and he called it Salzburg (Salt Castle) after the barges which carried salt across the Salzach River. He also founded the Benedictine St. Peter’s abbey, the oldest monastery in Austria. Its interiors were refurbished in the Rococo style in the 18th century. The abbey also houses the oldest library in Austria, focusing on medieval church history, art history, and items relating to the local history of Salzburg.

If you are interested, your guide will take you to Mozart’s birthplace. Mozart wrote over 50 symphonies and 15 operas, but he died debt ridden at age 35 and was buried in a mass grave. 
If time allows, visit the Mirabell Palace, located on the bank of the Salzach River, which was supposedly built by a local archbishop for his Jewish mistress. The palace gardens house the Baroque Museum, featuring an extensive collection of artifacts from the 17th and 18th centuries.
