The Austrian city of Salzburg is situated on the northern edge of the Alps, close to the border of Germany. Surrounded by lakes and mountains, and straddling the banks of the Salzach River, few cities can match Salzburg’s fairytale setting.

Few places can match its musical heritage either. Salzburg is the hometown of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and provided the settings for one of cinema’s most-adored musicals, The Sound Of Music.

Take the funicular to Hohensalzburg, one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval fortresses. Down below in the Old Town you’ll find Salzburg Cathedral and the Salzburg Museum. Nearby, wander along narrow Getreidegasse, one of the loveliest shopping streets in the world.

Just off the Old Market Square, savor 300 years of coffee-making tradition at Café Tomaselli. For classical Austrian fare served with a side of Opera, take the short walk to Stiftskeller St. Peter. At the Müllner Bräu Brewery, hang out with beer devotees from all over the world.

Salzburg has long been a city where inspiration knows no bounds, especially when it comes to its palaces. Just a short stroll from the Marionette Theater, the grandeur of Mirabell Palace and Gardens awaits. While on Salzburg’s southern outskirts, explore the playful water features at Hellbrunn Palace.

While Salzburg abounds with fountains, some of the city’s most impressive water features are its natural ones, such as Lake Wolfgang and Krimml Waterfall. For a waterfall with a difference, visit the spa town of Bad Gastein, whose falls roar straight through the heart of town. From the town, take the cable car to the summit of Stubnerkogel Mountain and walk Europe’s highest suspension bridge.

The Salzburg region is full of surprises, so before heading back to the city, head underground, into the Hallein Salt Mine. From its salt mines to its symphonies, from its fountains to its waterfalls, Salzburg plays out like a living opera, filled with drama, comedy, intrigue and passion.

  1. Wow, I never knew about these awesome videos until I sent someone the link to the current, wonderful commercial….the Siberian Train….Expedia really needs to advertise these. They are amazing.

  2. I really love these videos every last one of them. I hope you continue to shine light on the little known places like Dakar,Senegal or Chengdu,China and hopefully even some less shined upon places here in America like Minneapolis,Minnesota or Mackinac island Michigan. Anyway thanks for creating theme channel keep up the great work.

  3. Awesome Video, Expedia!!!
    perfectly captured. just mesmerising!
    Please do one of Innsbruck (and its surrounded mountains) as well and you captured the 3 marvellous cities of Austria!

  4. The only thing I want to know is how I can get the job of the people who get to travel the world and do these videos? They get paid to travel the world and have the greatest job possible.

  5. Great video, great pictures.

    But as local i'm always wondering why all videos only show the boring things in the region… next to the Mondsee with it's church like thousend others in Austria / Bavaria, you can: Swim, dive (<- yes dive, it's cool! there is one of the best fresh water diving spots in Europe), "village hopping" by boat, play golf, horse riding, canyoning, rafting or sail – only a few Minutes away from Mondsee at the Attersee or Traunsee. You can visit Ice Caves and a platform above the abyss on Dachstein (with a cable railway), the higest mountain in the area. There is also a Spa in Bad Ischl, which uses the Salt coming out of the sourrounding Mountains and a "Sissi-styled" Hotel.

    All that is not far away from Salzburg and 100% more exciting than this totally soppy little villages…

  6. Just finished our trip to visit family in Salzburg only to find you had done this incredible video that basically covered our entire trip. Just beautiful and thank you! Is there anyway you can tell me the mesmorizing music in the background as it is so beautiful and a perfect match to your video. Would love to be able to listen to that soundtrack. Thank you again!
