How to spend top weekend in Salzburg - ideas on extraordinary attractions and sites

Salzburg at Night The old and aristocratic Salzburg is suitable not only for sightseeing and admiring historic landmarks. There are many unusual and even odd places of interest in the outskirts of the city, and the Eisriesenwelt ice cave is one of them. One of the entrances to the cave is located in the immediate Salzburg suburbs. Eisriesenwelt is the largest ice cave in the world and has the length of nearly 42 kilometers. The access to the cave is possible only during an organized excursion. If you want to see the miraculous ice world, don’t forget to take warm clothes with you.

Besides the unique ice cave, Salzburg suburbs also have a ton of other interesting landmarks that are not mentioned in the majority of tourist guides. For example, there are many original cottages in the outskirts of the city. If you are fond of creative modern architecture, head there in order to find the “car cottage”. This unusual house with wheels looks particularly stylish in the evening because of the unusual illumination. A photograph with the cottage on the background will be a true gem of any vacation album.
There are also many interesting and hidden places in the city itself. If you want to walk in picturesque districts and admire the panorama of Salzburg, head to Kapuzinerberg Mount. Here, on the top of the mountain, you will see an ancient monastery that is visited by hundreds of curious travelers daily. Visitors come and hurry to leave the monastery in order to see another landmark. However, if you choose to stay on the mountain a little longer, you will notice many amazing observation decks that are perfect for making great photos and see Salzburg in detail from above.

Right after your arrival in Salzburg, you will be certainly charmed by the historic splendor of the city. While walking in the city’s shops, it will be hard not to buy some cute vintage item. In Salzburg, travelers can also make unique vintage photographs that will be a fantastic and memorable gift. The process of making these photos is no less exciting than the result. Head to Photographische Werkstatt photo salon that is open on Festungsgasse Street. The design of the salon would better suit an art gallery or a museum as there are many magnificent photographs in the style of the past centuries. Skilled photographers will quickly find a suitable antique costume for you, put on professional makeup, and make attractive shots. The result is guaranteed to please you and leave many sweet memories as Photographische Werkstatt is well-known far beyond the borders of the city.
Restaurant Night Shot - Salzburg When talking about fabulous historic landmarks of Salzburg, it’s simply impossible to fail to mention Furst confectionery. It’s not that easy to find it on winding streets of Salzburg. The oldest confectionery in Salzburg is open on Brotgasse Street. The opening took place in 1884. Since that time, for more than a hundred years numerous visitors come to buy the signature Kugel sweets. Besides the iconic small and round shaped sweets, don’t forget to try the signature truffle cake. Visitors on a diet can order a cup of fragrant coffee instead. Of course, the sugar-free coffee.

If you cannot imagine a vacation without shopping, but prices in popular shopping centers of Salzburg are somewhat out of budget, head to the central railway station district. There are many shopping streets near the station where you will find many shops and stalls with affordable prices. It’s the best place to shop cheap and fairly quality clothes and shoes, books and photo albums about Salzburg.
