The cheerfulness of the child: Residence Square

Continue to Residenzplatz, where the famous Residenzbrunnen stands. It is said that Mozart loved to play here as a child. Feel the childlike joy and curiosity that Mozart may have felt while playing in the majestic setting of the square.

Concerts in the Palace: Mirabell

And then there is Mirabell Palace, with its magnificent baroque garden. Here you can stand in the place where Mozart and his sister once gave concerts for the European elite. The beauty of the palace and the surrounding gardens are a symbol of the elegance and refinement of Mozart's music.

Preserving tradition: Mozarteum

A day in Salzburg would not be complete without a visit to the Mozarteum, the world-renowned music academy founded in Mozart's honour. Here you can watch young artists hone their skills and keep Mozart's musical legacy alive.

Indulgence and hospitality: Salzburg culinary delights

After a day full of musical discoveries, the city's charming cafés and restaurants invite you to linger. Here you can end the day with a piece of original Salzburger Nockerl or a Wiener Schnitzel. And of course, don't forget to make a toast to Mozart with a glass of Austrian wine.
