Salzburg and its surrounding towns were pioneers in the salt trade going back centuries and that is how the area accumulated wealth and developed.

It was also the birthplace of Mozart in the 18th century and his music is kept alive today with a packed programme of concerts across the city’s many churches, palaces and town squares. The Sound Of Music (set in Salzburg) has also been kept very much alive in the city and it’s surroundings with a variety of tours. The city is in the Alps, so that means lots of hills, steps and slopes to traverse  with baby or toddler. But it can be done.
