Hohensalzburg Castle

Salzburg’s most impressive landmark in the middle of the city just can’t be missed. The best way to explore it is to take the cable car up, be amazed by the view over the city and then walk through the grounds. To get back down you can either take the cable car or simply walk down the steep road, which is a trip well worth it. And you might as well stop at the Stieglkeller for a beer or two on the way down.

Mirabell Gardens

The gardens on the right side of the river Salzach were a gift by the royal archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau, who gave them to his beloved Salome Alt. Come here to enjoy the sunshine, read a book and if you’re lucky even enjoy some music from the Mozarteum music university across. The four figures around the fountain symbolise the four elements: fire, earth, wind and water. Now, that’s something to impress your beloved one with!

Stiegl Brauwelt –It’s all about beer

The museum is situation across several floors of the building inside the brewery and explains everything there is to know about beer and the art of brewing it. At the end of the museum you can join the included beer tasting and choose three different beers, including seasonal brews such as chocolate beer. Bring enough time to explore and come thirsty.
