Salzburg is known as one of the most beautiful cities on earth, and rightfully so. Strolling through the crooked lanes in the city centre, you will discover traces from the Middle Ages, Romance, Renaissance and Baroque as well as elegant classicist town houses. Fortress Hohensalzburg is throning high above the city's rooftops. It is one of the best preserved medieval fortresses in Europe and offers an impressive view across the city.
The travel book publisher Lonely Planet has chosen Salzburg as the number 1 city to visit in 2020. This honour is owed to the 100-year anniversary of the world-famous Salzburg Festival, the historic city centre being a UNESCO World Heritage site, the extensive cultural offer and, last but not least, the medieval fortress and the breathtaking Alpine panorama.
Also the New York Times listed Salzburg as one of the 52 Places to Go in 2020.
Apart from its impressive history, the multi-faceted city of Salzburg also shows its modern side with leading-edge theatre and dance productions, the Museum der Moderne (Museum for Contemporary Art) and of course the extraordinary exhibition and event location Hangar-7 at Salzburg Airport.
