Before saying goodbye, we remind you that Salzburg can boast a UNESCO World Heritage Site historic center, a great passion for music, especially for the classical one (with Mozart as a main character in the city concerts), a deeply-rooted culture for beer (the first commercial breweries date back to the end of 1300) and sweets (in 1890, the master confectioner Paul Fürst created the famous Mozartkugel), and a dedicated attention for the accessible tourism (European Prize for cities accessible to disabled people 2012).
