The 13 best things to do in Salzburg

For many people, Austria equals Vienna or hitting the slopes out in the Alps, but tackling the best things to do in Salzburg will highlight a quiet treasure when it comes to European cities. Salzburg is an energetic and friendly place, filled with history, culture and a surprisingly rich food and drink scene that covers everything from vast beer halls filled with hearty Austrian fare to sleek cocktail bars and a clutch of Michelin-starred restaurants. The town is also surrounded by some truly incredible scenery, which you can gaze at from a few choice spots on the edges of the city or by making a short journey into the surrounding Alpine countryside.
