Salzburg is the fourth-largest city in Austria and the capital of the federal state of Salzburg.
Salzburg′s "Old Town" (Altstadt) is internationally renowned for its baroque architecture and is one of the best-preserved city centres north of the Alps. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The city has three universities and a large population of students. Tourists also frequent the city to tour the city's historic centre, many palaces, and the scenic Alpine surroundings. (The Historic Centre of the City of Salzburg, was declared a World Heritage Site in 1996) Salzburg lies on the banks of the Salzach River, at the northern boundary of the Alps. The mountains to Salzburg's south, contrast with the rolling plains to the north. The closest alpine peak, the 1,972‑metre-high Untersberg, is less than 16 kilometers (10 miles) from the city centre. The old town is dominated by its baroque towers and churches and the massive Festung Hohensalzburg. This area is surrounded by two smaller mountains, the Mönchsberg and Kapuzinerberg, which offer green relief within the city. The best way to get around Salzburg is on foot. There is a network of city buses, the Stadt Bus, with numbers from 1 to 8.
The composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born and raised in Salzburg and worked for the archbishops from 1769 to 1781. His house of birth and residence are tourist attractions. His family is buried in a small church graveyard in the old town, and there are many monuments to "Wolferl" in the city. Salzburg was the birthplace of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In the mid‑20th century, the city was the setting for parts of the musical play and film 'The Sound of Music'. Hohensalzburg Castle (German: Festung Hohensalzburg, literally "High Salzburg Fortress") sits atop the Festungsberg, a small hill in the Austrian city of Salzburg. Erected at the behest of the Prince-Archbishops of Salzburg with a length of 250 m (820 ft) and a width of 150 m (490 ft), it is one of the largest medieval castles in Europe.
