Salzburg Old Town - Review

A city straight out of a fantastical fairytale, Salzburg is a beautiful destination for any tourist. The fourth largest city in Austria, its clean roads, well preserved city center and stunning Baroque architecture are set against the ice tipped Alps. Salzburg’s Old Town garnered international fame when it was listed as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites in 1997 and is home to numerous colleges. Salzburg is the capital of the federal city of Salzburg. Old Town is where most of the fantastic sights in the city are located, so be sure to keep plenty of time to explore the area.

The city is a great draw for architecture lovers, and one will be treated to a short history lesson when walking through the numerous narrow streets of the city. A lot can be seen in the way its design evolved through the ages, with everything well preserved. Starting with Romanesque and Gothic churches during the medieval era, it was transformed to meet the ideals of the Renaissance period by the Archbishop of the time. Buildings created in the Classic Modernism and Post War Modernism styles can also be seen.

The city is separated into two halves by the Slazach River, connected by the Nonntal Bridge, the only pedestrian Mozart Footbridge, the State Bridge and two footbridges. Overlooking the locality’s many beauties, is the stern façade of Hohensalzburg Castle, one of the largest in Europe. A fortress, coupled with the Monchsberg and Capuchin Mountains surround the picturesque Old City, with extension paths carved into both mountains, offering panoramic views of the whole city.

Salzburg’s Old Town has been voted the number 1 attraction in the city, with its cobbled streets and quaint buildings. Visitors like grabbing drinks and watching the scenery, which retains its loveliness from dawn to dusk. The Old Town is home to the City Center, numerous handsome churches such as the Franciscan Church and the famous Salzburg Cathedral. Old Town’s most interesting attraction is the birthplace and residence of the great Mozart. Much of the Old City is relatively small and a pedestrian zone, ideal for window shopping and taking leisurely strolls, horse and buggy rides and tours of the city. Touring is possible both by land and sea, so do put thought into which more would offer you the most stunning views of this magically beautiful neighbourhood.
