Welcome to an online Visit to Salzburg, Austria!
Dreaming spires, green hills and romantic gardens - the city′s attractions are loved by millions of visitors from all over the World hungry for Salzburg sightseeing. With a tourist-per-capita ratio higher than Venice or Florence, the city is among the busiest places of Europe all year round.
Therefore, a wealth of information about the city of Mozart is available from guidebooks, websites and travel agencies. Sometimes it can be difficult to find your way round during a Salzburg visit. How can you find the "real" place? Where can you obtain accurate information from independent sources?
This is where www.visit-salzburg.net pops up in all its glory: a website run by locals from Salzburg, who collected independent "inside" information in English for international visitors. Independent means that we neither work for the tourism council, nor for any particular company.
We share information on Salzburg with our readers because we like our city - and because we want you to enjoy it as much as we do! Experience Salzburg at your visit through the eyes of a local - or where else would you learn the 10 things not to do in Salzburg?

Special topics cover hardly noticed facts, such as Jewish History, the Lanz confusion, the history of the local university or background information on the Salzburg Festival. Even people who got here out of orthographic difficulties will be happy to find plenty of information on Salzberg. A few supporters of this website can be found in our Salzburg Hotels section. Accommodation is a necessity for every visitor and here you find some first-hand advice on hotels as well as private accommodation and hostels.
Other sections cover the sights of Salzburg, but even more so background knowledge that you won′t find in your guidebook!
