About Salzburg

You want to know more about the writer of your postcard?

The city of Salzburg is located on the northern edge of the Alps in the middle of the Salzburg Basin. Surrounded by the city’s mountains, the Hohensalzburg Fortress rises in the middle of the historic and impressive old town. It is one of the largest medieval castle complexes in Europe and a symbol of the city. From the 17th century onwards, Archbishop Wolf Dietrich and his successors generously built the city as a royal seat. At this time, Hellbrunn Palace was built in the south of the city with extensive palace gardens, impressive fountains and long avenues.
For locals the famous sights are part of everyday life. However, only a few know the legends, myths and stories about saints and the complex world of gods around Salzburg.
The historic center of the city has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1996.

The most famous Salzburg composer is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, born here in 1756. That is why the city is nicknamed “Mozart City” and the airport “Salzburg WA Mozart Airport”, as well as graduates and professors of the Mozarteum University Salzburg (such as Herbert von Karajan, Thomas Bernhard, Udo Jürgens and Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Carl Orff) internationally known.
In addition, the city is of international importance thanks to the Salzburg Festival (Salzburger Festspiele).
