Salzburg is a state (land) of Austria. It is officially named Land Salzburg, colloquially Salzburgerland, to distinguish it from its eponymous capital, the City of Salzburg. By its centuries-long history as an independent Prince-Bishopric, Salzburg's tradition differs from the other Austrian lands.
Salzburg is the fourth-largest city in Austria and the capital of the federal state of Salzburg. Salzburg's "Altstadt" (Old Town) has internationally renowned baroque architecture and one of the best-preserved city centres North of the Alps. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Salzburg is the birthplace of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and is famous for its attractive setting and scenic Alpine backdrop. It also hosts to three universities and a large population of students.
In the mid‑20th century, the city was a filming location for parts of the musical play and film "The Sound of Music".
Water was the central theme in the palace's design. The numerous sources in Hellbrunn give the estate its effervescent life. With fountains hidden in the shade of bushes and trees or jetting out from unexpected hiding places, the world-famous "Wasserspiele" have been the main attraction at Hellbrunn for almost 400 years.
Peaking out high above the baroque towers of the city, the Fortress Hohensalzburg is a real eye-catcher. Salzburg’s unmistakable landmark provides the city’s world famous silhouette. Even from afar visitors are able to appreciate the might of this edifice.
15.000 magnificent sqm., 2.000 stunning exhibits, 1.300 moving years. The DomQuartier is a unique highlight in the heart of Salzburg.
