    Fantastic view of Salzburg. I especially loved the panoramic view because it was beautiful. Use the Salzburg card to get entrance for free. Also take food with you because the restaurant is expensive.

    The Old Town Centre of Salzburg also known as the Altstadt, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996. Its located on the left and right banks of the Salzach River.

    Its one of my favourite cities in Europe.

    The very old buildings have been preserved from yesteryear and its a joy to walk around all these historic buildings.

    When visiting Salzburg its my preferred area to stay as it has so much atmosphere, hotels, restaurants, bars, shopping including designer brands and the annual Christmas Market.

    We were on a trip with the intent of visiting the Christmas Markets in Salzburg, while at the same time seeing other sites and attractions in and around the city. Salzburg has a great Christmas Market, but if you are there, especially around Christmas, you also must go on the Sound of Music Tour. One of the stops on our tour was the Mirabell Palace Gardens, located right in Salzburg's old town. Mirabell Palace was built in 1606 by prince archbishop Wolf Dietrich for his mistress and the gardens were added in 1687. In the center of the geometrically-arranged gardens is a large fountain surrounded by four groups of mythology-themed statues representing the 4 elements: fire, air, earth, and water. Mirabell Gardens were first opened to the public in 1854, by Emperor Franz Joseph. Considered to be one of the most beautiful Baroque gardens in Europe, they were made famous for being featured in several scenes in the classic movie The Sound of Music. Maria and the children sing 'Do-Re-Mi' while dancing around the Pegasus fountain and using the steps as a musical scale. (PaM)
