Salzburg

Salzburg is renowned for its excellent scenic and cultural highlights. When you're ready to get going, Expedia will help make it happen.

It is an area of Austria that some 150,000 people call home.

Escape the ordinary and be transported into a world of magic and wonder at Leopoldskron Swimming Pool and Volksgarten Swimming Pool. For even more fun, head onwards to the Salzburg Toy Museum and the Festungsbahn Funicular.

If you're intrigued by native and exotic animals, put the Salzburg Zoo on your trip list. If your time is limited, stop by the information counter and take a map so you don't miss out on any of the park's key exhibits.

Don't forgo the chance to see where and how some of the area's best beers are made. Gather your friends and head straight for the Augustiner Brewery, the Stiegl's World of Brewing or the Hofbrau Kaltenhausen Brewery. It won't matter where you go first. When you get to one, you'll want to see all three!

When you get the urge to spend some time outdoors, pack a picnic hamper and find a quiet corner at the Mirabell Gardens.

Turn off your phone and give yourself a break from the stresses of the modern world at Eisriesenwelt Cave and Untersberg. Kapuzinerberg Hill and Mount Nockstein are also popular with lovers of the natural world.

Spend a day or two exploring some of the many cultural spaces in the area. Meander through the hallways as you check out the unique collections at the Mozart's Birthplace and the Manro Classic Auto and Musik Museum. Equally rewarding are the Dommuseum and the Gruber Museum.

The natural world is revealed in all its wonder at the Museum of Natural History and the Domgrabungsmuseum. Immerse yourself in their collection while your imagination wanders off into exotic, unfamiliar worlds.

A haven for art connoisseurs, this area is home to various spaces in which amateurs and professionals display their work. Pay a visit to the Mozarts Wohnhaus Museum and the Moenchsberg Museum of Modern Art for the best of what this creative enclave has to offer. If you can fit them in, the Rupertinum Modern Art Museum and the Salzburg Baroque Museum are also well worth checking out.

Take yourself back through time and uncover secrets of the past at the Salzburg Museum and the Salzburger Freilicht Museum. Like the sound of those? Continue your explorations at the Burg Golling Museum or the Marionette Museum.

The Mozarteum University of Salzburg and the Eine Hommage Sculpture are certainly worth taking a look at, even if you're not that into history. When it comes to bygone times, there's always more to discover. The Sigmundstor Tunnel and the Pferdeschwemme Horse Well are also great places to stop by.

Take a moment to watch the water ebb and flow past Makartsteg Bridge. This age-old structure has played a vital role in connecting the city's residents.

Some of the region's richest families have called Mirabell Palace and Gardens and Hellbrunn Palace "home." Be sure to take some photos as you take in their impressive architectural features and lavish interiors. Anif Palace and Salzburg Residenz Palace are two more stately homes that have their share of stories to offer.

Would you like to go to a place that seems like it's right out of a fairy tale? Take some time to see the area's wonderful castles and watchtowers. You can be sure your kids will have a great time pretending that they're knights fighting dragons at Fortress Hohensalzburg, Neuhaus Castle and Klessheim Palace Casino.

Discover the region's spiritual side and take some time to reflect at Salzburg Cathedral and St. Francis Church. If you'd be interested to check out some more religious sites, keep your eyes peeled for tours at Nonnberg Abbey and St. Peter's Abbey.

After you've experienced all the principle attractions around Salzburg, consider stopping by a couple of its lesser-known sights. Getreidegasse and the Untersberg Cable Car are certainly worth a look. Also, think about seeing Waldbad Park and Kletterpark Waldbad Anif if you have time.
