Centuries of history have built Salzburg brick by charming brick. Famed as the birthplace of Mozart and Sound of Music, the city's journey from a humble Roman settlement, Iuvavum, to the glittering gem of Austria is a narrative of fascination. Founded as an episcopal see in 696, and advancing as an Archbishop's seat in 798, Salzburg's antiquity is interwoven with the veins of its salt mines and golden runnels.

Witness the fortitude of Hohensalzburg, one of the largest surviving medieval fortresses in Europe, looming over the city since the 11th century. Traverse the exquisitely preserved Baroque alleys of Altstadt, Salzburg's revered UNESCO World Heritage Site, and marvel at the architectural splendour achieved under the rule of the Prince-Archbishops. Cherished historic compounds like the Hellbrunn Palace, intricately detailed university buildings, and robust fortifications whisper the tales of the illustrious architects who shaped Salzburg.

But history is but half the city's allure. With the wondrous Alpine panorama, a vibrant student population from its three universities, and the constant hum of cultural events, Salzburg is alive with the dynamism of the present. Couple the historical provenance with the contemporary vigour, and you have a city that stands testimony to continuous habitation since the Neolithic Age.

When to visit Salzburg

Choosing when to visit Salzburg often depends on what kind of traveller you are. The high season, spanning June to August and December, promises perfect weather and bustling crowds. It’s the time when the city truly comes to life under the summer sun and the glitter of Christmas lights.

The low season, from January to March, presents Salzburg in a softer light, with nuances that only the locals are privy to. The budget traveller will revel in the lower prices during these cooler months. Come the shoulder seasons of April, May, September and October, Salzburg strikes a balance between affability and affordability. With tolerable weather, reasonable charges, and less crowding, these months can be a winning choice.
