Here you will find everything your heart desires. The unmistakable Salzburg flair. Small shops, hidden courtyards with gastronomic highlights and cozy outdoor dining areas. Salzburg's coffee house culture and rustic beer pubs, a wide variety of shops, ice-cream parlours and delicious trendy food, secluded squares with urban flair and quiet walks in the countryside up on the beautiful mountain Kapuzinerberg.

Mirabell Palace and Gardens

Those who think of Salzburg often have the Mirabell Gardens in mind, with their symmetrical design. The odd figures scattered throughout the garden are particularly charming. With its originally 28 dwarfs made of Untersberg marble, this special park might make you giggle, because no dwarf looks like the other. The Mirabell Garden is naturally guarded by the majestic Mirabell Palace, which is together with the gardens a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Mozart’s residence – landmark on Makartplatz

Even before Mozart's rise to world fame, his later residence was a social meeting place. And in this tradition, cultural events still take place in the former dance hall. Of course, there is an area dedicated solely to the Salzburg's child prodigy: the Mozart Museum on the first floor.

Mozartplatz – in honour of the city`s most important son

How could it be different for Salzburg: In our list there is a third place of interest dedicated to the person of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Located in the centre of Salzburg, Mozartplatz has a special significance thanks to the impressive Mozart Monument, created by Ludwig von Schwanthaler, which was erected here in 1842.
