Salzburg Austria

Why go?

For Mozart and Maria (von Trapp) moments, big Alpine views from the high-on-hilltop fortress and baroque in excess.

Local hotspot

Untersberg, a 1,853m peak nudging the German border, for views to make you yodel out loud.

You probably didn’t know

Joseph Mohr penned the lyrics to the carol ‘Silent Night’ at No 9 Steingasse.
