Salzburg is becoming an increasingly popular destination for visitors and rightly so. Acclaimed by all the guide books as one of the prettiest cities in Europe, with a population of just 150,000 it still retains a homely small-city atmosphere. Its location on the banks of the Salzach river and beneath the cliffs of the rocky hill, Mönchsberg is enviable.

Lying just two hours from Munich by train, Salzburg lies just inside the German-Austrian border. As the birthplace of Mozart Salzburg it offers a wonderfully preserved old town which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site as well as some of the most stunning surrounding landscapes as a result of its position just a stonesthrow from the Alps.
