Photo of the Day – Old Town Salzburg, Austria

It’s the birthplace of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the winding streets of this charming Alpine town just might inspire you to burst into song. Salzburg is the heart of music and culture on the northern edge of the Alps but it’s more than just Mozart and The Sound of Music. The well-preserved architecture of stunning Old Town Salzburg (Altstadt) is often referred to as a “Baroque Jewell” and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Massive Hohensalzburg Fortress towers over it all with sweeping views over the Salzach River and the Alps. Whether you’re dining at Europe’s oldest restaurant or singing Do-Re-Mi in the Mirabell Gardens, you’ll find Salzburg delightful.
