The municipality of Kaprun is a popular and well-known holiday destination for sports, culinary delights and wellness. Zell am See in its idyllic location is just a short drive away. Here you can stroll in the enchanting pedestrian zone past delis, traditional costume shops and pastry shops. From the Esplanade you follow the lakeside promenade along the lakeshore. If you have plenty of time, you can walk around Lake Zell completely from here.
Salzburg is a world-famous city that is worth seeing in many ways! From Kaprun you can reach the Mozart city by car in less than two hours. The special flair and long history of Salzburg can be experienced particularly well in the famous Getreidegasse and on the spacious squares of the old town. Every year, the cathedral square is the venue for Hugo von Hoffmannsthal's Jedermann during the festival. Austria's oldest coffee house, Café Tomaselli, is located at the Old Market Square. And make sure you don't miss the colourful hustle and bustle at Rupertikirtag and Christkindlmarkt on Residenzplatz.
A stroll off the beaten tourist track is also worthwhile - in the lively Andräviertel, in the artistic Nonntal or the meandering alleys of the Kaiviertel. Cross one of the bridges from the old town to the other side of the Salzach - into the Linzergasse with its cafés, restaurants and shops, to the traditional Schrannenmarkt, which always takes place on Thursdays around the Andräkirche, or through the Mirabellgarten, from where you can admire the view of the Hohensalzburg Fortress.
Salzburg's alleys and mountains
Beside the Getreidegasse, the more hidden alleys of Salzburg are also worth seeing: In the Steingasse narrow houses nestle against each other, which were once built directly at the rock of the Kapuzinerberg. The Goldgasse owes its name to the goldsmith craftsmen who once lived here. In addition to the Kapuzinerberg, the Mönchsberg also defines Salzburg's cityscape. The Museum der Moderne is located here and can be reached easily by lift. Above the rooftops of Salzburg, one walks along winding paths in idyllic nature and enjoys magnificent views of the old town.
And since a single visit is not enough to explore all the treasures of the city of Salzburg, you should simply come again.
