Salzburg, the capital (city) of the federal state of Salzburg, is situated on the River Salzach at the point where the river leaves the Alpine region. Salzburg has about 150.000 inhabitants and, due to its central geographical position it is an important centre of administration, culture and commerce. Founded in Roman times (first century AD) the town housed the seat of the archbishop and monastic settlements in its first millenium. In the year 1077 work began on the fortified castle called the "Festung", now the landmark of Salzburg. lt was mainly under the leadership of the Archbishops Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau and Paris Graf Lodron that Salzburg developed into a major Baroque city in the seventeenth century. Many of the outstanding buildings erected then (Mirabell, Hellbrunn, Leopoldskron and Klessheim Castles amongst others) are still extant today. Salzburg is easily accessible from all parts of central Europe and beyond. The city is the hub of an excellent motorway system linking the south with the north, the east with the west.

Salzburg has managed to preserve an extraordinarily rich urban fabric, developed over the period from the Middle Ages to the 19th century when it was a city-state ruled by a prince-archbishop. Its Flamboyant Gothic art attracted many craftsmen and artists before the city became even better known through the work of the Italian architects Vincenzo Scamozzi and Santini Solari, to whom the centre of Salzburg owes much of its Baroque appearance. This meeting-point of northern and southern Europe perhaps sparked the genius of Salzburg’s most famous son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, whose name has been associated with the city ever since.
