Many people know Salzburg, Austria as being famous for the town in which the movie ‘The Sound of Music’ was filmed in, but Salzburg is much more than that! It is also the birthplace of the musical genius Mozart and his (less famous but very talented) sister Nannerl and one of the last remaining marionette theaters in the world.
Many people visit Salzburg to see these things that make the city so famous. Salzburg originally was added to my itinerary once I found out that the movie ‘The Sound of Music’ was filmed there and when I did further research and found out Mozart was also born there, it was an added bonus. The city is heavily catered to tourism and provides everything from tours to musical dinners. When I was in Salzburg, I aimed to soak up as much of the musical culture that the city had to offer within the two days that I visited.
