Hearing the Music of Salzburg
Salzburg is considered the northwest gateway to Austria. The city is set in a magnificent valley filled with the music of the River Salzach and the lingering memory of Mozart, who was born in the city in the 18th century.

When you arrive at Salzburg Airport, your private transfer is already waiting. In the city center, you find horse drawn carriages taking locals and visitors on romantic rides around Old Town. Narrow alleyways fill with classical music drifting out of open windows and accompanying the aroma of freshly baked cakes and slowly brewed coffee. The city has a particular magic of its own. When you settle into your luxurious accommodation, you can enjoy the splendors of Salzburg’s historic streets and Alpine charm at your leisure.
