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

Salzburg by 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.
