Uncovering Salzburg’s Hidden Gems

With so many attractions in Salzburg, it’s easy to burn out from seeing the must-see places. Luckily, there are more off-the-beaten-path areas and less-visited sites that offer a more authentic taste of the city. Whether you have a day off from sightseeing or just want to spend less on your accommodation, these lesser-known spots are perfect for some added exploration.

Arriving in Salzburg

The quaint village of Puschkin, just outside of Salzburg, is the ideal spot for a day trip. With charming shops, scenic canals and a picturesque town centre, it’s the perfect place to spend a day doing as the locals do.

The Puschkin Market is an exciting attraction and a must-visit on your trip. Not only is it one of Austria’s largest markets, it’s also completely open-air. With over 1,000 stalls spread out across the town centre and along the canals, there are various goods on offer – from fresh fruits and vegetables to handmade accessories and souvenirs. 

If you have time, check out the town’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Weißgerbergasse 27, another must-visit spot.

After lunch or dinner, stroll through the scenic canals of Puschkin and take in the beautiful town centre. Nearby, you will also find the Austrian Post Office’s Museum and a variety of shops selling everything from lace to hand-made jewellery.

See the famous filming location of “The Sound of Music”

Whether you’re a fan of the film or just want to experience a piece of cinematic history, this tour is a must. Trust me; it’s amazing to see these locations in real life!

The most popular filming location is the Schloss Leopoldskron, just a bus ride from central Salzburg. Whether you visit in the summer or winter, seeing this stunning baroque palace in all its glory is a magical experience.

Lake Wolfgangsee

The tour will also take you on a cruise across Lake Wolfgangsee. Enjoying the stunning views of the Austrian Alps while sipping on champagne is just one of the many perks of this two-hour boat tour. Don’t forget to look into the window of the boat’s tower to see the crew performing their singing act from “The Sound of Music”.

An excursion to Salzburg to visit the Schloss Leopoldskron and take a cruise across Lake Wolfgangsee will provide memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime. Whether it’s a couple adventure or shared with friends and family, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to see these locations in real life!
