back

The city of Salzburg, divided by the river Salzach, is located in the middle of the Salzburg valley. Salzburg was re-established as a bishop’s seat in 696 and the seat of the archbishop in 798. The fortress Hohensalzburg dates back to the 11th century and is one of the largest medieval castle sites in Europe and a landmark of the city. Salzburg’s most famous Salzburg composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was born here in 1756, which is why the city bears the nickname “Mozartstadt” and the airport is named Salzburg Airport W. A. Mozart. The historical center of the city has been on the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1996. Salzburg is an important trade fair and congress center with many trade and service companies as well as a lively tourism area. In addition, the city is internationally significant through the Salzburg Festival. Salzburg is not big, but it has a very colorful and cultural offer for everyone at almost any time of the day.
