Surrounded by Monchsberg fortress and with the Salzach River winding its way through this World Heritage Site, Salzburger Altstadt represents an architectural mix of buildings. The river splits the town into two halves connected by a series of bridges. The left bank of the Salzach, where Roman buildings once stood, is older. Most of the core is pedestrian-only, so enjoy a stroll through the historic town's many narrow streets. The city wears its history on its streets, with buildings from the Middle Ages, Romanesque, Baroque, and Renaissance periods. Visit the fountain in Residence Square, the city's most famous square, and Mozart Square, a hometown tribute to the classical music legend.

A very interesting guide - Andrei Salpius. The surroundings of Salzburg are very interesting, especially the area of the Royal Lakes, as well as small villages around the lakes. Wonderful views, especially in September, when there are not many tourists and everyone can see, ask, learn. I recommend to everyone such a guide as Andrei Salpius.
The Old town is wonderful to just walk around and soak up the joys of Austrian architecture and cuisine. Beautifully decorated shops wit wonderful wrought iron signs more »
