After looking at the medieval rooms of the old rulers, it is best to stroll through the historic old town: Baroque Salzburg Cathedral, the Glockenspiel or the marble Residenzbrunnen are just some of the highlights. When in Getreidegasse with its unique signs, however, you should not only visit Mozart's birthplace, but also pay attention to the beautiful house entrances and the dates and names of the former inhabitants on the façades - it’s free of charge. The best thing to do now is to get a box of original Salzburg Mozartkugeln as provisions for a hike to the top of the Mönchsberg mountain. After so much old stuff and so much tradition, it is now time for something contemporary: In the Museum of Modern Art you can find just that on the walls and enjoy the wonderful view over the city and the Salzach River.
Those who are now hungry will stroll through one of the manypretty markets in Salzburg: as its name (literally “Green Market”) suggests, you will find a lot of fruit and vegetables at Grünmarkt, while the "Schranne" (on Thursdays) offers a bit more hearty, but always regional wares.
