Salzburg

Across Mönchsberg mountain to Hohensalzburg castle

Hohensalzburg castle towers high above the city of Salzburg. During its centuries-old history it was not captured once. These days, it prefers to let in guests and besiegers voluntarily, albeit, unfortunately, not free of charge. There are many ways up to the castle.

Salzburg Visiting the city of Mozart with children

The city of Mozart has many outdoor playgrounds with great views of the city. The city hills are perfect for ball games and other outdoor activities and are easy to get to with a buggy. A nice walk or a romp in nature – the Mönchsberg mountain, the Kapuzinerberg mountain or the big parks (Mirabell, Hellbrunn, Volksgarten) offer interesting sights as well as children’s playgrounds that are great fun.

Public viewing at the 2016 UEFA European Championship

For four weeks this summer, half of Europe will be at risk of getting sunburn while they sit glued to a big screen for a good 90 minutes. Yes, the time has once again come: the 2016 UEFA European Championship will take place in France on 10 June to 10 July. It will be the first time in the tournament’s history that a total of 24 teams participate – and the last time that it will be hosted by one single country.
