Findings from research psychologist Richard Wiseman, author of The Luck Factor, who also asked a sample pool of volunteers to spend a month applying these four principles and found that 80% emerged “happier, more satisfied with their lives and, perhaps most important of all, luckier.”

- European Highlights - Salzburg, Austria
Salzburg is definitely one of the most picturesque cities in or near the alps. Its most remarkable landmark is the fortress Hohensalzburg which is located on a hill. The view there is amazing as you can see not only the whole city but also the beautiful and scenic alpine landscape which surrounds Salzburg.
The fortress can be reached either by foot or by using the cable car which starts near the impressive cathedral. (The cathedral is the huge church on the left of the bottom picture.) There are also several other churches which are worth a visit.
Other sights in the Old Town of Salzburg - which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage - are the Salzburg Residenz and the romantic Getreidegasse. The Residenz is a former palace and its extravagantely equipped rooms can be visited today. The Getreidegasse (german for Grain Lane) is a lovely, narrow lane with both traditional and international shops (left picture in the middle).
In the Getreidegasse you will also stumble upon Salzburg’s most famous citizen - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. You can visit both his birthplace in the Getreidegasse and his later residence which is also located in the Old Town.
Salzburg is still an important city concerning classical music as the Salzburg Festival still attracts many visitors every year. The Festival Halls can be visited throughout the whole year.
Outside the old town the Mirabell Palace with its pretty gardens is worth a visit (top picture: view from from the Mirabell Garden to the fortress)
The surroundings of Salzburg also offer several possibilities to spend your time. You can either climb a mountain or use the cable car or enjoy your time at a lake or a small town like St. Wolfgang, Hallstatt and Mondsee. Furthermore the German border is only a few kilometeres from Salzburg, so trips to Königssee or Berchtesgaden are possible.
