If you think you have already seen everything in Salzburg, think again. This Collection will prove you wrong. We have put together eight routes that show you the Mozart city in a different light. Go on a walk around the city and get to know Salzburg from an unknown side – and let yourself be charmed. You can, for example, discover the Baroque city’s various themes and explore places that you would otherwise not have noticed. Of course, there are also some popular attractions, but if you look at the city from a different angle, you will discover completely new perspectives and see well known sites in a whole new way.

The routes have something for every interest. Discover art in open spaces on the „Walk of Modern Art“, try different local beers in the breweries, and marvel at the splendor and diversity of churches in Salzburg. Do you prefer to explore nature? No problem, that too can be reached quickly from the old town – even with impressive views. The hikes are all quite short, so you have plenty of time to enjoy the highlights along the way or just relax in a café. If you also want to explore Salzburg by bike for a change, you can find inspiration here: komoot.de/collection/887888/auf-dem-rad-durch-salzburg-und-das-umland.

In the city center you will find a huge variety of accommodation as well as plenty of restaurants, shops and entertainment. Infrastructure for holidaymakers is perfectly developed. You will be surprised by the different sides of this baroque city when you discover Salzburg in a different way.
