Salzburg birthplace of Mozart, is a city in central Austria. If you have seen the movie The Sound of Music, you may think you know all there is to see in Salzburg. Admittedly, it is difficult not to spontaneously burst into song when you're walking along the Salzach River, or climbing up to the Hohensalzburg fortress which looms over the city. But there is a lot more to this compact, courtly city than Julie Andrews.
Salzburg is the fourth-largest city in Austria (after Vienna, Graz and Linz) and the capital of the federal state of Salzburg. Its "Old Town", with its world famous baroque architecture, is one of the best-preserved city centers in the German-speaking world and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
The Salzburg W.A. Mozart International Airport (SZG) is situated about 20 minutes from the center of the city. Connection with the city is provided by a trolley bus. The trip from the airport to the train station is approx. 20 minutes.
The best way to get around Salzburg is on foot. There is a network of city buses, the StadtBus, with numbers from 1 to 8 (trolleybuses) and 20-27 (diesel buses). They will take you several miles out of town with your only way back being on foot or by taxi. If you need to get somewhere late at night, it may be best to take a taxi.

Hoffmansthal, being conducted in front of the Dom (Cathedral) every year.
More recently, festivals also take place during Easter time (with mostly Baroque music), and in autumn.
Mozartkugeln are chocolate-covered marzipan candy balls inspired by the famous composer, Salzburg's most famous son, Mozart. The more widespread Mirabell brand is sold in many tourist shops, but they are also available at most local grocery stores for a lot less.
The Reber brand sits between Fürst and Mirabell in terms of quality, it is however made in Germany and thus not authentic; its price is in line with Mirabell's. There's a Reber chocolate shop in the Altermarkt with a wide range of chocolates, Kugeln and pastettes.
