Art and Culture in the City of Salzburg and Salzburger Land

If the city of Salzburg, Salzburger Land and the Salzkammergut is well known for something in particular, then it is art and culture. It is not only at the time of the Salzburg Festival when art and culture dominate. Numerous monuments, exhibitions and sights draw many thousands of visitors in throughout the whole year. The original film locations from the “Sound of Music” are a summer highlight, whilst the Mondsee is transformed into a winter wonderland around Advent and the pre-Christmas period.
