Singing in Salzburg

A fortress on a hill, 17th-century cobbled streets, Mozart, the ultimate singalong: if Salzburg didn't exist, someone would have to invent it just to keep all the acolytes who visit each year happy. It's hard to say what's more popular, but you just have to see all the kitsch for sale to know that this is Sound of Music country. Faster than you can say 'Do-Re-Mi' you can be whisked into the gorgeous steep hills that are alive with tour groups year-round.
