On the German border, with views of the Eastern Alps, the birthplace of Mozart and setting for the film “The Sound of Music.”, Salzburg look like it came right out of a storybook. The city is split by the Salzach River, with medieval buildings on the left bank (Old City), and 19th-century Neustadt (New City) on the right bank. Beyond these two tourist attractions is a city with a flourishing arts scene, parks and concert halls that uphold musical tradition 365 days a year. Everywhere you go, the scenery, the skyline, the music and the history will impress.
Try a mozartkugel. A favourite in Austria, a small, round confection made of marzipan, nougat and dark chocolate - YUM!
