    Salzburg Things to Do

    Hohensalzburg, the home of the Archbishops of Salzburg for centuries, is still a draw, both for what's inside and the views from it. You can stroll around the grounds, enjoy the views from the ramparts, visit the Palace Museum, or tour the fortress itself (the latter must be done with an escorted tour, but there is no additional charge). To get...

    During our stay in Badgastein we rented bikes (at our hotel, but there is also a sports store near the train station where you can rent bikes) and went on a bike ride to Böckstein, south of Badgastein. It's a short but beautiful trip. Unlike the streets of Badgastein, there are no steep hills on the way to Böckstein.
