Residence Bellevue has a perfect west-facing position and is an ideal holiday location in both the summer and the winter to discover the surroundings of the Zeller Zee. In the summer you can make a cruise and enjoy the beautiful environment and the water. In the winter you can make, when the Zeller See is frozen, ice-skating tours on natural ice. A visit to Salzburg is also definitely worth your while as this region has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1997.
The UNESCO World Heritage treaty has been in place since 1972. This treaty is intended to be able to better preserve cultural and natural heritage, of unique and universal value for mankind, for future generations. Countries that have signed this treaty have agreed to commit to identification, protection, preservation, accessibility and to transfer cultural heritage within their country borders to generations to come.
Salzburg has succeeded in preserving its especially rich urban form. In the time that Salzburg was a city state, from the Middle Ages up to the 19th century, the city structure has developed itself. Plenty of flamboyant Gothic art could be found but the city became even better known later because of the Italian architects Vincenzo Scamozzi and Santini Solari.
Salzburg is the point where the Italian and German culture meet. Because of this ‘encounter’, a beautiful city in Baroque style has arisen in which a lot of history can still be found. The skyline of Salzburg is characterised by the abundance of towers and domes. The cathedral, the Franciscan monastery, the abbey of St. Peter and the Domplatz complete this skyline.
