City walks in Salzburg between nature and culture
Amazing tours through the city of Mozart
There are so many amazing and diverse options to explore and discover the city of Salzburg. Walks through Salzburg lead you on an unforgettable foray through the history of the city of Mozart, but also to many glorious natural monuments that might be fairly hidden from the naked eye. Your GMACHL team has collected a few suggestions for you.
Musical Salzburg city walks
Mozart. Haydn. Gruber. Salzburg’s musical tradition is and remains unrivalled. A tour leads to the most important sites of the city’s musical history in 33 stages. Look forward to three amazing routes, which you see in greater in detail at www.stadt-salzburg.at, with the following focal points:
- Music before 1600 (red)
- Music from 1600 to 1800 (orange)
- Music after 1800 (brown)
Historical knowledge and several fascinating anecdotes are your companions on this city tour.
Cultural hiking trail Almkanal
The Almkanal is a marvel of medieval architecture and used to supply the city with water. It now runs through splendid nature accompanied by an eight-stage cultural hiking trail. This walk through Salzburg between Weidenstrasse und Georg v. Nissenstrasse is rich in natural and historical information. There’s a year-round surf wave to be found in the centre of this popular local recreation area.
Music aside, literature also plays an important role in Salzburg. 22 stages, once again divided into three routes, provide an introduction to the city’s writers:
- Literature before 1800 (red)
- Literature from 1800 to 1950 (orange)
- Literature after 1950 (brown)
These walks through Salzburg with an extended detour onto the Mönchsberg invite you to retrace fascinating literary steps in the historic city centre. Find an exact description of all stages and the route plan at www.stadt-salzburg.at.
