Salzburg's storybook city centre is full of surprises. Its baroque churches, palaces and castles, narrow streets and hidden courtyards are all protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Of course, music plays a big role in the city's fame, not only as the birthplace of Mozart, but also as the film setting of the beloved The Sound of Music.
