Enrich yourself with a day of cuisine, culture and history in Salzburg!

The entire city center of Salzburg is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is filled with countless ways to spend a day. Follow the footsteps of Maria von Trapp on the Sound of Music tour, or delve into the past and visit the birthplace of  Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart! Climb the footpath (or ride the funicular) to the nearly 1000 year old Salzburg Fortress, one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. Sample the brew of the month at the Stiegl brewery. Dig into some delicious Austrian desserts like Sachertorte, Kaiserschmarn, and the world famous Salzburger Nockerl. Animal lovers can visit the Salzburg Zoo or see dinosaurs and exotic fish at the Haus der Natur. Shop among the architectural wonders of the old city, or just relax in one of the many palace gardens. Don’t forget to get the Salzburg Card, which makes it easily affordable to see everything on yourn to-do list, even for families, and while you are at it, download a free e-travelguide from Army Libraries, so you keep your tour guide right at your fingertips.
