The Hohensalzburg Castle was built in 1077 and is the largest fully preserved castle in Central Europe. The castle, which is over 900 years old, was originally built to protect the archbishop. The Castle Museum and mediaeval Regency Room are particularly worth a look. The interior of the castle was magnificently designed with exquisite Gothic carvings, ornamental paintings and golden embellishments. The Hohensalzburg Castle can be visited all year round.


In the “Hagenauer Haus” at Getreidegasse No. 9, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27th 1756. Today, there is a museum in the house of his birth which is open all year round. Here, you are guided through the original Mozart rooms, which house historic instruments, documents, souvenirs and portraits among other things. After the flat in the birth house of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart became too small for the Mozart Family, the entire family relocated in 1773 to the Tanzmeisterhaus on what was then known as Hannibalplatz, today’s Markartplatz. Today, this house is also home to a museum, which shows the stages of the Mozart Family and is known by the name “Mozart Wohnhaus”.
