The Hohensalzburg Fortress, Cathedral and church steeples in the baroque city Salzburg to the north of the Alps are special visits worth. The Salzburg Festival is one of the world's most renowned. Mozart's city is a perfect blend of nature, sports, the past and present: coffeehouses and restaurants steeped in tradition can be found beside trendy bars and alternative event venues.
The site of an exciting football festival, the city is characterized by its 21st century architecture and centuries-old cultural highlights. With a capacity of 30,000 seats, the enlarged European Championship football stadium in Salzburg/Wals-Siezenheim is ready for Uefa Europacup 2008.
