Salzburg is a really nice city, historically and because of the sights. First thing probably everybody knows, it's the birthplace of Mozart, the famous composer. Because of that fact it's also the place where you can find the sweets 'Mozart Kugeln'. The things you should look at are the castle Salzburg on top of the city. Another attraction are also the many Coffe houses, restaurants where many Austrian go to, just for drinking a cup of coffe and enjoy the view, for example on the river Salzach, which runs directly through the town.
At least there are many things you can do, also shopping, but you should visit the city by yourself and see it!
