The city of Salzburg, which is the headquarters of the football club, is listed as the fourth largest city in Austria. The hometown of the legendary composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is rich in history, mainly thanks to its architectural style. Since 1996, Salzburg has entered the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In the past, the city of Salzburg was torn apart by World War II, which also related to the existence of Nazi Germany, which has occupied the area since 1938. But that did not dampen its current beauty.
The city of Salzburg is known to present many tourist attractions, one of which is due to the city’s long history. One of the most popular is everything about Mozart. The strong nuances of Mozart make Salzburg nicknamed “City of Mozart.”
Besides, architecture enthusiasts can visit Hohensalzburg Castle, one of the largest castles in Europe, which is more than 900 years old. Or the Salzburg Cathedral, which is estimated to stand around 774. The city on the Austrian border is also one of the romantic tourist destinations. At least there is the beauty of the park in the Hellbrunn Palace and Mirabell Palace, or the accordion song from the street musicians while down the Salzach River.
The traveller will also meet a variety of love locks that mesh on the Makartsteg bridge on the Salzach River. That said, lovebirds who put a padlock here will have a link of eternal love. The natural charm around the city of Salzburg also adds a strong nuance as the right place for romance. At least there is a view of the Alps to spoil the eyes of tourists who visit. The many beauty in Salzburg was also what used to be a hero in the legendary musical film Sound of Music.
