The fortress and the old city. Especially watching the animated evolution of the fortress over almost 2000 years. Watching the rock on which the fortress is built from below, seeing the vertical cliffs, gives you a sense of how hard it must have been to try and conquer it before modern weaponry.

It feels like history and culture are all around you. From the fortress and palaces to the architecture, statues and fountains and the buildings in the old city, you can see this was one of the most important cities of a formerly great empire.

The foot bridges are cool and offer great views. Even the walk up to the castle is short, though the funicular is fun to ride. It is much too crowded to try and drive downtown. Park the car and walk in.

I liked the small shops. Something different through every door. We didn't really hit the high end shops, but there were some local fun shops in the city center. There are also food vendors, so you can grab a quick, cheap, lunch and keep on shopping.

What were the best places for wandering in Salzburg's old town?

Calin, Belgium

17 days ago Report

I personally enjoyed the most walking on the hill/rock that the fortress was built on. It's quite a big area that now it's mostly forested and feels somewhere between a park and a forest. It's relaxing, it can cool you off on a hot day, and you can see the old city from above.

How well restored were the castles in Salzburg?

The castle was rustic. The walls were in good shape and the tour was informative. The views are what you go for though. The views of the city from the top are worth the price of admission. The Marionette museum, though a little creepy, is also fun.

The Augusteiner Beer all is a great place for beer. Also look for Steigl in just about any bar, it is a Salzburg local beer.
