Salzburg literally means Salt castle. The city got its name because of the salt mines and the salt business it was involved in.
The birthplace of Mozart, Salzburg is indeed enchanting; It seems that everyone living in the city knows to play at least one musical instrument. And it appears to be true, when I visited the city. I could see that there were people playing different instruments in each and every street I went.
Walking in the streets of Salzburg was entertaining; especially the market street of olden days – Getreidegasse. I was roaming in that street for the most part of my stay in Salzburg. The street was very narrow with tall buildings erected very close to each other.
The fortress on top of mountain, the Mirabel garden (shown in the movie Sounds of Music), the Mozart square, the Getreidegasse street, Hellbrunn palace – all add to the beauty of this ‘Enchanting City’.
I am sharing the most impressive ones here:
