Salzburg Nightlife

Being a university town and a city of music and culture par excellence, Salzburg has a bustling nightlife with a decent number of bars, clubs and live music venues. This may not be immediately apparent to first-time visitors, since the city's heritage preservation laws prohibit conspicuous advertising.
