Say happy birthday to Mozart in his native Salzburg
Where stunning Baroque churches are nestled before a backdrop of snow-covered peaks. Nothing beats it for a touch of historical magic, with evidence of its imperial past in a huge variety of proud palatial architecture. There’s plenty of skiing, eating and drinking to be done – and even coffee drinking has been elevated to the highest form of art.

Mozart’s birthplace (Mozarts Geburthaus) gives you a sense of the brilliance of the great man – not only his musical genius, but his sheer productivity across his relatively short life. Go, and have your eyes (and ears) opened to the magic of Amadeus.
Must eat at:
Esszimmer, on Mullner Haupstrasse, will drag you from Mozart’s era to the 21st century in a nanosecond. Ultra-hip and contemporary, it serves up an Austrian take on French specialities, with a real hint of relish. And it’s delicious, too.
Must be there for:
Marking the birthday of its most famous son, Mozart Week, annually in late January, brings some of the world’s best orchestras to three venues in town to perform some of the great man’s finest work.
- Travel to nearby Gartenua then take the cable car to the 1300 metre summit of the Untersberg for some seriously fresh air and a dazzling view.
- Fancy a flutter? There’s a casino in town and it’s open all the way ‘til 3 in the morning.
