Salzburg, Austria. The History and Traveling Guide for Tourism. Vacation Packages. The fourth largest city of Austria is Salzburg. Salzburg is a beautiful city with great surroundings and the old Town of the city is one of the best preserved city centers north of the Alps and has internationally renowned baroque architecture. Salzburg was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 and millions of tourists come every year to see the beautiful city. The famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in the famous Getreidegasse. The best time of the year to visit Salzburg is in Summer, Salzburg weather during summer is very sunny and hot. Around the Salzach river you will find a good Hotel in Salzburg. Although the Baroque city of Salzburg may not be the biggest, it is certainly one of the most visited. This is thanks in no small part to locations around Salzburg featuring heavily in the hit musical movie 'The Sound of Music', and also being the birthplace of Austria's most famous classical composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. As a direct result of these influences, together with an almost endless supply of gorgeous 17th-century houses and buildings, along with characterful cobblestone lanes and many beautifully landscaped gardens, tourism in Salzburg is flourishing as never before. The Old Town district of Salzburg is steeped is history and completely free of traffic, being filled with interesting courtyards, fountains and public squares, such as the Domplatz, Residenzplatz and the Mozartplatz, where an unmistakable statue of Mozart himself has proudly stood for more than 150 years. A tourist information outlet is also located on the Mozartplatz and this is a good place to purchase the 'Salzburg Card', which entitles the holder to various discounts and free admissions. Many people choose to spend their time in Salzburg by embarking on one of the popular 'Sound of Music Tours', a guided coach trip that takes in the main movie locations whilst playing the soundtrack and main songs. Others choose to explore the city on foot, walking to the top of the central Mount Mönchsberg, or alternatively choosing to take either the scenic funicular railway (FestungsBahn) or the Mönchsberg Lift. Families will always enjoy a day out at Salzburg Zoo (Tiergarten Hellbrunn), particularly at feeding time, while for grown-ups, sampling the beer as part of a tour around Stiegl's Brewery World is a must
