Salzburg neighborhoods

Altstadt - "Old City"

The Altstadt is home to some of Salzburg’s most lovely structures, including plenty of baroque churches and centuries-old townhouses. Plenty of cafes and tourist shops line the streets, though the real show-stopper is the striking backdrop of mountains.

Located on the north side of town, Lehen is a quiet residential area filled with parks and bike trails. The area is of little touristic interest, though it provides the opportunity to see locals going about their daily lives. From Lehen, the rest of Salzburg is accessible by bus.
