Salzburg city

Discover the charm of the old town

The Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, provides an impressive backdrop for events such as the world-famous Salzburg Festival, with performances such as Jedermann, Mozart and Strauss programs as well as diverse and top-class operas, concerts and plays.

A stroll through the charming alleyways of the old town, especially the famous Getreidegasse, takes visitors back to centuries past. The colorful facades, artfully decorated guild signs and historic arcades give this shopping street an unmistakable charm – life pulsates here. Between traditional craft businesses and exclusive boutiques, visitors can experience Salzburg’s authentic flair up close.

The so-called “Durchhäuser” with their sometimes magnificent courtyards, where the hustle and bustle of the Getreidegasse is suddenly only distantly audible, are particularly exciting. This allows you to zigzag your way through the old town and discover sights large and small without having to take the same route twice.
