Salzburg's "Old Town" (Altstadt) has internationally renowned baroque architecture and one of the best-preserved city centers north of the Alps. The city is dominated by its baroque towers and churches and the massive Hohensalzburg Fortress (or castle) atop the hill.
The city was the birthplace of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart born here on January 27, 1756.
It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
