Music lovers will take a detour to Salzburg, the town where Mozart was born. Nicknamed the "Rome of the North", it displays its churches' and cathedrals' bell towers in a mountainous setting. To see it as a whole, you have to climb up to the top of the Hohensalzburg fortress, a richly decorated castle. In the old town, walk along the Greteidegasse, which is distinguished by its numerous signs in wrought iron. Although they are not from the same epoch, all have the same style. The branch of McDonald's does not deviate from the rule: it has a gorgeous one!
