Endless list of places I’d love to visit someday

↳ Salzburg, Austria

The city of Salzburg is noted for its Alpine setting. The name Salzburg means “Salt Castle”. In the mid‑20th century, the city was the setting for parts of the musical and film The Sound of Music. The Salzburg Festival is a famous music festival that attracts visitors during the months of July and August each year. A smaller Salzburg Easter Festival is held around Easter each year. The city is also known for being the birthplace of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Traces of human settlements have been found in the area dating to the Neolithic Age. The first settlements at Salzburg were apparently begun by the Celts around the 5th century BC. The Altstadt, or “old town”, is dominated by its baroque towers and churches and the massive Festung Hohensalzburg.
