    Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich had grand palace built for his mistress Salome Alt in 1606. The minute you enter the vicinity, you are sure to get mesmerised by the gardens. The lithe Tänzerin (dancer) sculpture is a great spot to photograph the gardens with the fortress as a backdrop. Sound of Music fans will of course recognise the Pegasus statue, the steps and the gnomes of the Zwerglgarten (Dwarf Garden), where the von Trapps practised 'Do-Re-Mi'. The palace by itself was refurbished in a Baroque style by ohann Lukas von Hildebrandt, known for Schloss Belvedere. The Marmorsaal (Marble Hall) provides a sublime backdrop for evening chamber concerts.

    In the heart of Salzburg's Old Town, St. Peter's Abbey (or Stift Sankt Peter) is known for its ancient lineage that dates back to the 800s. The Benedictine monastery's abbey church has a Romanesque structure and lavish rococo interior. It also houses a library that treasures musical manuscripts and prized collection of artworks, musical instruments and treasures. In the abbey cemetery lie the tombs of Mozart's beloved sister and the brother of Haydn.
    Roman Catholic Church
    The Mozart family lived in Salzburg from 1747-1773, where W.A. Mozart himself was born on 27 January 1756. The house is now a popular museum devoted to Mozart with interesting memorabilia and letters. If you are a music enthusiast you must visit the "Mozart Residence" museum (similar times and prices) which holds a 'Pictures of Mozart' exhibition, containing portraits of the man, as well as portraits of doubtful provenance.
    Situated in a unique lakeside location with magnificent view of the majestic mountains, the palace is only a short walk from the old town of Salzburg. In 1736 the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg, Leopold Anton Freiherr von Firmian, built this home for his family. Today the palace is converted into a hotel with a beautiful blend of historic, originally preserved ambience, where history was written and a gorgeous location, modern technology and the personal service offered.

    Surrounded by the Residenz Castle and St. Peter′s Abbey the mantelpiece over the main window is a face making a grimace towards the Residenz, the Prince Archbishop′s castle. It was made to show to the people that the mighty Abbot of St. Peter′s could risk messing with the Prince Archbishop. The first cathedral was built on this site by Bishop Virgil who came to Salzburg in 767 and built a cathedral on the site of the former Roman Juvavum. On September 24, 774 the cathedral was consecrated to St. Virgil and St. Rupert.

    Salzburg's most visible icon is this mighty 900-year-old cliff-top fortress, one of the biggest and best preserved in Europe. Climb up to the hill and take a look at the city by the Salzach River and the mountains. The fort also showcases a 1612 model of Salzburg, medieval instruments, armour and some pretty gruesome torture devices. Do not forget to take a look at the gold ceiling imitating a starry night sky where lavish banquets were once held. The view of the fortress lit up in the evening is a beautiful sight.
