Top 3 Touristic Places in Austria

Celebrating the premiere of the Austrian crime thriller Precipice, set in a beautiful small town of the country, we have selected three beautiful landmarks and sights you must visit at least once in life.

Mozart’s Birthplace in Salzburg
When you walk through Salzburg’s Getreidegasse, a quaint, cobble-stoned shopping street that is reminiscent of centuries past, you won’t be able to miss Mozart’s birthplace at no. 9. After all, it’s one of the most popular museums in the world nowadays, showcasing the original rooms and Mozart’s musical instruments.

Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna
The Habsburgs’ summer residence is Austria’s most popular tourist attraction. Schönbrunn Palace is one of Europe's most beautiful Baroque complexes and has been in the possession of the Habsburgs since 1569. The palace and garden complex created from 1696 onwards following the siege of Vienna was completely redesigned under Maria Theresa after 1743. Today, due to its historical significance, its unique layout and magnificent furnishings the palace is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Hohensalzburg Fortress in Salzburg

First built in 1077, Hohensalzburg Fortress stands high above the city of Salzburg, a short (but steep) walk from the city center. The biggest fully preserved castle in Central Europe, this emblem of Salzburg offers a 360-degree view of the city and its surroundings. Inside, you will find the Princes’ Chambers with furnishing that have not been changed since the early 1500s, as well as a museum showcasing ancient suits of armor and a historic marionette museum. The fortress is open year-round. Since 1892, not only can it be reached on foot, but also through the Fortress Funicular, which is located in the Festungsgasse.
