It's all walkable
We found that much of what we wanted to see within Salzburg, within our limited time spent, was within walking distance. We spent a full day in the Old Town part of the city on the west bank of the river and stayed on the east side of the river, nearer the train station. The views from Hohensalzburg

Departure from Bus terminal Mirabellplatz/St.Andrew's Church
The lovely pegasus sculpture was designed by Kaspar Gras from Innsbruck (1661) and placed here in 1913 after it had been in several different locations. The 4 groups of figures around the fountain symbolize the 4 elements: Fire (Aeneas' flight from Troy), Air (Hercules' battle with Antaeus), Earth (Pluto, lord of the Underworld abducting Zeus' daughter Persephone) and Water (Paris carrying off Helen, precipitating the Trojan War).
Don't expect open minded citizens
It's not very easy to find friends in this city, but once you are in contact with the people here, it can be a start for a good friendship. Many people are a bit prejudicted against foreigners. Exceptions are people working in touristic sectors.
Just a couple tips
For luggage, just make sure you take good durable bags (you know how baggage handlers are). Shoes: Take brown or black leather shoes. Like I said before, from what I saw, Europeans don't wear tennis shoes unless playing a sport. Better not to stand out.
The fasions I saw were really no different, so just normal sweaters and kakis were perfect for me. Take you digital camera and an extra memory card. There are so many photo ops that you can quickly run out of room on your card. I take my laptop everywhere with me, so I tend to upload my pictrues to the computer evey couple days. This way, I can hop on the internet in a cyber cafe, and order prints that will be waiting for me when I get home.
