City of Salzburg

Around an hour's drive (90 km) from the Barbarahof is the world-famous festival city of Salzburg and its cultural sights. Salzburg can look back upon a long, action-packed and splendid history. Built on Celtic and Roman ruins of Iuvavum, Salzburg became a propserous city in particular thanks to trade in salt 'Salz' – from which its name is derived - ('Hall'), and was set up as a superb seat of royal residency by Wolf Dietrich and his archiepiscopal successors.

A visit to the world-famous Festival City

The Old Town area in particularm with its lovingly designed Getreidegasse, Mozart's birthhouse and Hellbrunn and Leopoldskron palaces, bear witness today of a long tradition of culture. Salzburg exudes a very special style in every respect, whether it is the culture, the world-famous Salzburg Festival, its many museums and even the special selction of sophisticated boutiques, small street cafés, luxurious and international restaurants. Salzburg is certainly worth visiting.
