What to see in Salzburg? Part 2

Salzburg, Austria

Last week I posted some tourist attractions in Salzburg, and this week I’ll finish that post with some more ideas and some tips that I’m sure you’ll be glad to know.
Here is some brief resume of some more tourist attractions in Salzburg:
Schloss Mirabell and Garden: prince-archbishop Wolf Dietrich has built this castle to his lover in 1606. It has a lovely garden, and it is widely recognised because of one of the scenes in the movie “Sound of Music.” It is located in the “new” part of Salzburg.

Getreidegasse: this street cuts through the historic centre, and has a variety of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as primary attractions such as the Mozart birthplace.

Stiftskirche Sankt Peter: one of the oldest monastery in the region, with beautiful examples of the baroque style.

Steingasse: a very narrow medieval street that starts at Linzergasse.

Linzergasse: here you can find shops, restaurants and cafes.

Nonnberg: is from here that the movie “The Sound of Music” was inspired. There is a church with a red roof, and it is also a convent.

Schloss Hellbrunn: my friends and I couldn’t visit it because it’s closed in the winter season. That was such a shame!
The Schloss is famous mainly because of the water fountains. The archbishop used to make jokes on his guest with hidden fountains. Prices: Adults €13.50, children (4-18 years) €6.

Makartsteg: if you have a beautiful view of Salzburg, with all the old centre.


1. Buy the Salzburg Card, which includes entrance to all attractions, free public transport (including Festungsbahn funicular, Untersbergbahn lift, Mönchsberg lift, Salzach River Tour I).
Costs: €26 (24hrs); €34 (48hrs) or €39 (72hrs). Children up to 15 years: €13, €17 or €19.50 respectively.

2. Visit Christmas In Salzburg shop: it is a hand-painted egg store with so many varieties that you can’t believe it. It’s open during the whole year around. Address: Judengasse 13.

And, if you fancy, you can have some day out trips like:
Hallstatt: a small village that you can visit in a few hours and even do the Lake Gosausse on the same day, which is 15 minutes by car (more info here).
Berchtesgaden: where is Lake Konigssee, Germany. It is 30 minutes by car (25km) from Salzburg;
Maria Alm and some other alps that are extremely beautiful and are about 80km from Salzburg (more info here);
Lake Fuschl or Fuschlse: it is a beautiful lake and a popular spa and hiking destination.
Eisriesenwelt: the largest ice cave in the world!
Dachstein Gletscher: if you wish to visit the Austrian Alps, that is an excellent place to make a day trip and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
