Salzburg: a musical masterpiece

Is it us, or is the air a little more refined up here? Stunning Salzburg, Austria’s fourth largest city, sits in baroque splendour in the lap of the Alps, close to the Austria-Germany border.

Rightfully famous as the birthplace of Mozart, Salzburg became even more popular in 1965 when it featured in The Sound of Music film. Yet the city remains quiet and classy. In its UNESCO-listed Old Town the shops still sport guild signs made from curling wrought iron, and the streets still have their cobbles intact. Above the many church spires and courtyards, a huge fortress keeps watch over the hillside. Below, the creamy blue Salzach River entices visitors out into the countryside: and the surrounding Salzkammergut region really is a joy to behold – head to Zell am See to ski, or the pretty shores of Fuschlee for a spot of lakeside luxury. Whether you want to climb every mountain, or visit every schloss (stately home) in the vicinity, discover Salzburg: it’s just a short British Airways flight from London to the prettiest city break you’ve ever had.
