Things You Can Enjoy Doing with Kids in Salzburg and Nearby Locations

Salzburg is an enchanting city in itself and has so much to offer. One can simply get tangled in the most beautiful way possible with its beauty and aura. However, people look pretty skeptical when it comes to visiting the city with kids as many will consider it quite expanded in terms of being liked by kids, like Disney land.

As it says the map is not your territory, Salzburg has many places to visit and many activities to offer that will keep the interest of kids high and they will enjoy the trip as much as you will.

Some of the key attractions that you need to take your kids in Salzburg

Hohensalzburg fortress

Hohensalzburg fortress Salzburg

Taking a funicular trip up and down to the Hohensalzburg fortress, which sits on a mountain overlooking the town, is one of the nicest things to do in Salzburg.

The fortress is a simple method to please the family when visiting Salzburg with youngsters.

Despite being the biggest and best-preserved fortress in central Europe, most of the interior design has been lost to the ravages of time.

There will be no need to wander through room after room of artwork and furniture. Kids will get fascinated by both the marionette show and the torture museum.

Hangar 7 Aircraft Museum

Hangar 7 Aircraft Museum

The Hangar 7 Aircraft Museum will appeal to children of all ages. It will not, in reality, disappoint the grownups.

Dietrich Mateschitz, the guy who founded the energy drink, Red Bull, is a native of Salzburg. At the Salzburg Airport's Hangar 7 Aircraft Museum, he keeps his collection of aircraft, racing vehicles, and other big boy toys.

If you're searching for something different to do in Salzburg, this museum is a great option.

Silent Night Tour

Silent Night Tour

We went to Oberndorf and the Silent Night Chapel on our winter visit to Salzburg. We were pleased to learn about the renowned carol and witness the little church where it was originally played on this trip, which only runs on Christmas Eve.

Sound of Music tours is available throughout the year. Embark on a bus tour of the locations utilised in the film.

Just make sure your kids view the movie beforehand so they understand what they're witnessing.

Schloss Hellbrunn

Schloss Hellbrunn

Schloss Hellbrunn is one of the most entertaining historical sites in Salzburg for kids, thanks to its trick ponds. This mansion was designed by the same architect who designed Salzburg Cathedral in the early 17th century for one of the Prince-Archbishops of Salzburg.

The water fountains at Schloss Heilbrun are one of the nicest things to do in Salzburg on a hot day. This Prince-Archbishop had a childish sense of humour and plenty of cash to spend on his whims. There are grottos, fountains, and even a water-powered theatre on the grounds of the palace. You can visit this place with a Bike Tour of Salzburg City

Mirabell Palace and Gardens

Mirabell Palace and Gardens

One of the nicest sites to see in Salzburg is the Mirabell Palace and Gardens. In 1606 a Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg erected the castle and gardens for his girlfriend and baby-momma. I'd think she deserved the palace after producing 15 offspring for the Prince-Archbishop.

The local administration still uses the Mirabell Palace nowadays. Weddings can be held in the famed Marble Room (the Palace's old banquet hall). In the Marble Room, Mozart used to give performances.
