Salzburg, the city of Mozart’s birth, is located on the northern edge of the Austrian Alps. The charming old town, with the Monasteries of St. Peter and Nonnberg, was added to the list of UNESCO world heritage sites in in 1996. These days the city is also home to some eye-catching modern architecture, with the Unipark Nonntal and the Mozarteum as two prominent examples. Among the most popular historical sites in Salzburg is the fortress of Hohensalzburg; majestically enthroned high above the city, it is one of the largest fortified complexes in Europe. Salzburg is a very lively city and has a longstanding association with music and festival performances: the Salzburg Festival, founded by Max Reinhard and Hugo von Hoffmannsthal enjoys an international reputation. Big business is also aware of the city’s attractions and several international corporations have offices here. Infrastructure is an important matter for commuters and winter sports enthusiasts alike: Salzburg is easily accessible via several motorways, including the A1 and the A10, as well as Salzburg’s W. A. Mozart Airport. This is also the perfect starting point for many excursions to the surrounding areas, including the Salzkammergut region, Oberndorf and the chapel where “Silent Night” was first performed and the Salzburg lakes.
