O Nosso Conselho
Salzburg is a truly special place, an open air movie set that the camera just loves. To prove this point The Sound of Music was largely filmed in the city and surrounding Alps - and for good reason, Austria’s fourth largest city is beautifully preserved, the baroque architecture, palaces, gardens and monuments having long ago turned it into a world heritage site.
Not only is it easy on the eye, it is also gentle on the ear. Salzburg is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and allusions to him are pretty much everywhere. Café Mozart, Hotel Mozart, the city of Mozart, Mozart concerts… you get the picture… and sometimes it may seem a bit over the top. In fact, this mixture of matinee idol looks and famous sons does have its drawbacks. In peak season, tourists seem to outnumber residents by five to one and it does create something of a Disneyland feel.
But there is no denying the pulling power or loveliness of Salzburg. Plus, it doesn’t just rest on its laurels. Salzburg has three universities which provide a strong student culture and youthful atmosphere. Mix this with its history and location and you have a special, yet fun place that is a must visit for anyone coming to Austria.
