Church inside the Moenschburg at St. Peter's Monastery

T. E. Watts

Salzburg is dubbed the 'Rome of the North' because of its many churches. It is a compact town easy to get around on foot.

Salzburg is packed with attractions: churches, mansions, museums. The old city offers all of those on a small surface.

On the outskirts of the city is one of Salzburgā€™s top attractions Hellbrunn Castle. Its water gardens seen in The Sound of Music are great fun especially for kids: When Archbishop Markus Sitticus built the place in the 1600s he had trick fountains mounted in the floors and walls. To satisfy his quirky sense of humor he occasionally sprayed his guests by activating a secret mechanism.
