Just 3 kilometres from the sports grounds is Salzburg city centre. Here, you will find countless historic buildings, palaces and churches. A standout highlight is the city's symbol: the Hohensalzburg. This fortress stands on top of a mountain, providing wonderful views. With dimensions of 250 by 150 metres, it’s one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. Not really a history buff? Then go and shop to your heart's content in one of the lively shopping streets, such as Getreidegasse. If you need a break, there are plenty of lively restaurants and terraces to enjoy.
