The Mönchsberg: Named after the Benedictine monks of St Peter's Abbey at the northern foot of the mountain, Mönchsberg Mountain sits 507 meters above sea level and is one of the five mountains in Salzburg. The Mönchsberg plateau offers a small-scale change of forests and meadows and therefore is a popular local recreation area for both locals and visitors alike. There are also several castles on the Mönchsberg including The Johannesschlössl, The archiepiscopal Marketenderschlössl, Schloss Mönchstein, and The Kupelwieserschlössl. And to top it all off, climbers get a breathtaking view over Salzburg.

Palace Hellbrunn: This early Baroque villa was built in 1613 –19 and was named for the "clear spring" that supplied it. Aside from housing the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg, the palace is also famous for its water games in the grounds, which are a popular tourist attraction in the summer months. These games were conceived by Markus Sittikus, a man with a keen sense of humour, as a series of practical jokes to be performed on guests. Notable features include stone seats around a stone dining table through which a water conduit sprays water into the seat of the guests when the mechanism is activated, and hidden fountains that surprise and spray guests while they take part on the tour. At all of these games there is always a spot which is never wet — that where the Archbishop stood or sat.

Schloss Leopoldskron: Located in Leopoldskron-Moos, a southern district of the city of Salzburg, is a decorative palace and national historic monument known to bring visitors for its historic beauty and claim to fame. The palace, and its surrounding seven acre park, is located on the serene lake Leopoldskroner Weiher and has been home to Salzburg Global Seminar since 1947. A little later, in 1964, the film The Sound of Music, was produced in Salzburg with the grounds adjacent to those of Schloss Leopoldskron as one of the main exterior locations. In fact, 10 outdoor scenes were filmed there portraying the von Trapp home. The setting for the two main love scenes, one between Liesl and Rolf (featuring the song Sixteen Going on Seventeen) and the other between Maria and the Captain (Something Good) was the glass gazebo originally situated in the gardens of the palace.
