Barcelona Highlights

AUSTRIAN FOOD
Highlighted by signature dishes of Schnitzel, Goulash and Tafelspitz, hearty dishes are abound. Strudel is also a favorite that can be in either the dessert form or as a main dish. Kaiserschmarrn are 'shredded' pancakes, lightly coated with powdered sugar and often served with berries, apple sauce or another side.

MOZARTKUGEL
Originating in Salzburg, Mozartkugel is a round chocolate ball filled with pistachio marzipan and nougat.

SALZBURG NOCKERL
A sweet soufflé served warm with powdered sugar, and often with a raspberry or cranberry sauce.

CONCERTS
It's no secret that Salzburg is centered around music, and being Mozart's hometown, classical music is everywhere. Year round you can find concerts at the Castle, St. Peter Restaurant, Mirabell Palace, Mozarteum and many other great venues throughout the city.

SOUND OF MUSIC
Salzburg is not only the filming location for The Sound of Music but also where the real Trapp family lived. From Mirabell Palace where "Do Re Mi" was filmed, Residenzplatz where Maria sings "I Have Confidence", St. Peter’s Cemetery for the fight scenes, Fesitval House where the Trapp family performs before their escape, to the famous gazebo at Hellbrunn Palace where "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" takes place, and the list goes on. You can take a Sound of Music Tour to appreciate the long list of filming locations.
