One of the most popular excursion destinations in Salzburg is the Grossglockner High Alpine Road in the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park. This is where you will find Austria’s highest peak, the Grossglockner, at a height of 3798 m. The Celtic village at Dürrnberg near Hallein introduces you to a turbulent history. The reconstructed settlement once inhabited by Europe’s Iron Age people vividly illustrates the way the ancient Celts lived and worked. In addition to excavations and typical wooden houses, you can visit the brine room, which deals with the history of salt production.
Built in 1606, the Mirabell Palace, in front of which are the magnificent Mirabell Gardens, is one of Salzburg’s most important sightseeing attractions. The baroque sculptures, the marble hall, which is used today for weddings and concerts, and the palace chapel are reminiscent of past glories.
