Favorite thing: The amazing thing about Salzburg is the large variety of things to do both in and around Salzburg. Salzburg is small, but it is one of the most important cities for the Austrian tourism industry. Thousands of visitors worldwide visit the "Small Paradise" of Salzburg throughout the year. It's countryside, with unique natural attractions such as the Hohe Tauern National Park, the beauty of the old town center of Salzburg, and the surrounding communities, all offer an extensively enchanting variety for visitors. In Salzburg, they have proved sucessful in preservation of it's culture and nature

The area around Salzburg offers the chance for unwinding in crystal-clear air, leisurely walks, hikes over broad Alpine meadows, easy climbing tours, the enjoyment of a simpler way of life, being in the great outdoors and breaking out from the daily rut of the city ... and leaving stress far behind, all the way back down in the valley. With all this to offer, it's no wonder why Salzburg is one of Austria's most visited cities.

Fondest memory: Salzburg was the first of Austria's cities that I visited. It was actually my first city in Europe. I will never forget the experience of standing in the old town center and feeling like this didn't belong. I was so accustomed to believing that a city had to have skyscrapers and lots of modern buildings. Being enveloped in a city with such traditional architecture, culture, and people changed that quickly. The words "Culture Shock" never meant so much in my life. I have to say, Salzburg was the city that opened my mind culturally. I could never repay it for that!
