It’s no secret that this city is all about maximising its Mozart and musical links. It flip flops between inviting you to take a suitably lux pew for a concerto or lining up for a borderline schmaltzy take on the Sound of Music. Do both during your visit, and you’ll be well rewarded. Yes, music reigns supreme during holidays to Salzburg, but you needn’t dance to this city’s much publicised beat. Ancient beer halls are THE place to heft a flagon of ale in – but look elsewhere and you’ll find an uber-futuristic airport hanger in which to quaff all manner of drinks, surrounded by shiny tech. The ski slopes and alpine meadows are THE places to frolic, but who says the city’s parks and pristine palace gardens aren’t there to run amok in? Then there’s the food scene. It’s almost written in Salzburg lore that all visitors must partake of the schnitzel. But the vegan, veggie and gourmet cuisine in this city practically begs you to eat anything but the carb-laden strudels so synonymous with Austrian fare.

So by all means load up on some steadfast Salzburg holiday options. But know this. In Salzburg, treading a different path will be just as rewarding.

Soundtrack of the city

Snowcapped Salzburg

Salzburg’s biggest festival takes advantage of the city’s warmest month, so do drop in during August for music and a chance of crowds.

Christmas brings snowy rooftops, flake dusted nearby slopes and many a rousing chorus of silent night. Peak Salzburg hits in early Spring. The mountains are still snowcapped but the city is in full bloom.
