Salzburg, the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The "Old Town" or "Altstadt" is one of the best preserved city centres north of the Alps with its internationally renowned Baroque Architecture. Salzburg is on the banks of the Salzach River at the northern boundary of the Alps. High above the roofs of Salzburg stands the medieval castle complex and modern fortress, Hohensalzburg Fortress.
