Salzburg - 'The Rome of the North'?

Jump to last reply

Listening to Rick Steves last night on the tube and he called Salzburg the Rome of the North.

Well I love Salzburg and it is certainly an ABC town - another bloody church at every turn but in no way would I ever call it a Rome of anything.

That said Salzburg to me is one of Europe's cutest cities - a Baroque wonder all harmoniously gone for baroque. I really like Salzburg and feel it is one place not to miss if in the area.

Yet lots of folks diss Salzburg as over hyped.

What do you feel about Salzburg?
