Discover the fascinating Salzburg – tips of our hotel

Salzburg UNESCO world cultural heritage site – a austrian city spanning the traditional and the modern

Salzburg is rightly considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Strolling through the winding alleys of the old city you can find traces of the Medieval, Romantic, Renaissance, Baroque and elegant Classical town houses. And high above the city, the Hohensalzburg fortress sits on its throne, one of the best-kept medieval castles in Europe, which offers visitors a panorama view of the city.

Alongside all the impressive history, Salzburg also has a modern side: New theatre and dance performances, the unique Hangar-7 work of art at Salzburg Airport and the "Museum der Moderne" set a contemporary and fresh tone.

Lonely Planet chooses Salzburg as top city 2020

The publisher of travel guides Lonely Planet chose Salzburg as the number one city to visit in 2020. They based their decision on the 100-year anniversary of the Salzburg Festival, the baroque old town (UNESCO world heritage), the vast amount of exhibitions, readings, plays and concerts and of course the 900-year-old clifftop fortress and the panoramic views.
