With a skyline dominated by graceful church spires, domes, and palaces, it’s no wonder Salzburg is often referred to as the “Rome of the North.” Rising above these centuries-old secular and sacred buildings is the formidable clifftop Fortress Hohensalzburg, built in 1077 by the archbishop, and beyond that, the Eastern Alps of The Sound of Music fame. The city is divided by the Salzach River, with Altstadt (Old Town) on its western bank and the 19th-century Neustadt (New City) on its right. Throughout its history, Salzburg has been a melting pot for the cultures and arts of northern and southern Europe, evident in its Italian-style plazas dotted with quaint shops and cafes and its rich musical traditions—making this old-meets-new Austrian city an enchanting destination for all types of travelers.
