City Guide: Salzburg

Salzburg is a home to one of the fattest cash cows ever shot.

It is from the light hand of Salzburg the musical The Sound of Music was born 45 years ago. Classified as culturally significant by the United States Library of Congress in 2001. This musical, awarded with five Oscars and six Tony Awards, smashed box office records. Adjusted for inflation, it made $1.046 billion at 2010 prices, putting it third on the list of all-time inflation-adjusted box office hits, behind Gone with the Wind and Star Wars.

You can capture the spirit of every scene of this famous picture in reality in Salzburg. It will take you a booking at Booked.net to be in Salzburg – the mother of Austrian cinematograph.

Be it a room in cheap hotel in Salzburg or one appointed with luxuries we have them all with maps, photos and secure forms at Booked.net.

The ''Sound of Music'' is still ''that musical that tourists like'', while locals resist their city to be associated only ''with location for the making of the film. They are proud of their city to be ''Salt Castle'' that literally means Salzburg – a destination that holds firmly onto its salt deposits. Thus, Salzach River that crosses the largest Alpine destination in Austria – Salzburg - has waters with a salty taste because of the barges carrying salt on its banks.

Both banks of Salzach River are densely inhabited with 141,000 people. Among them to be found some personalities that gave Salzburg its name on the world cultural scene. Just imagine that Salzburg saw the first childish steps of famous 18th century composer Mozart and turned Julie Andrews into a global star.

All these famous personalities, just like you in Salzburg, once drank coffee in pavement cafes and took strolls around its world famous baroque architecture, UNESCO treasured since 1997. Attractions include;

- Mirabell Gardens with a fountain shot in The Sound of Music

- Salzburg Cathedral, a baroque cathedral that dates back to 17th century

- Hohensalzburg Castle, the largest cathedral in Europe stands on the hill, thus looms far away the city limits

- Residenz Palace, former Prince-Archbishop's residence

The quantity of such spiritual places in Salzburg outnumbers major tourist destinations.

In fact, Salzburg was elevated to the rank of archdiocese in 798 and from the late Middle Ages had formed a spiritual principality in the Holy Roman Empire. It is the only one to have been ruled as an independent state by a prince-archbishop and still remains an independent land. Thus, the city is reasonably named the oldest spiritual center in Austria.

With Booked.net, you can place yourself in this epicenter of cultural and spiritual diversity named Salzburg.
