  • The trick fountains our 10 year old loved it, Mozart birth place great if you’re a big fan. Fortress Hohensalzburg Very impressive views. We walked around accessible by foot in a day.

  • I would highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting Salzburg! It was a modern museum with a touch of something for everyone, from the paintings of the city to special exhibits on coffee to the children's area! If you're here, GO!!
  • A wonderful museum! Very interactive and you learn a lot (and easily) about the history of Salzburg. The exhibitions are well put together, with varied rooms that keep you interested and entertained. We stayed there for almost 3 hours. Would absolutely recommend, we kept talking about the museum all day long.
