There are quite a few museums dedicated to the city’s most famous son, including the Mozart Sound & Film Museum, and the houses where he was born and lived. However there is more to Salzburg than Mozart. Festung Hohensalzburg, a castle fortress, was home to the rulers of the city from 798 AD. It takes about 15 minutes to reach the fortress at the top of a hill but can be done by taking the funicular.
The palace of Schloss Mirabell has beautifully laid out gardens, inundated with tulips and crocuses in the spring. The gardens appeared in The Sound of Music and consequently attract many visitors, including brides and grooms.
The Old Town is pedestrianised and quite small, making it easy to see the sights on foot. It is also a World Heritage Site, with an impressive cathedral, Roman ruins, and abbey catacombs to visit.
