Typical Austrian café. Serves great breakfast, fantastic pastries, and has a wonderful terrace. Go for the Esterhazy Schnitte.
A most untypical restaurant with changing concepts every few months. The owners are not only lovely but awarded chefs. Get the pulpo, prawns, cut of the day, and all dishes from the dessert bar. After that, it's the gin bar which is one-of-a-kind and has over 100 different types of gin with 20 tonics and many add-ons.
The most traditional coffee house in Salzburg with a great terrace and a lovely inside. We recommend going there in the afternoon and sitting outside to enjoy some sun, a great view, coffee, and their Apfelstrudel.
Very tiny and stylish café. A must for all coffee lovers as they import and roast their own blends. Get a “kikiriki” or “Green-Yellow-Red” breakfast and one of their daily pastries. They take no reservations but usually you can have an espresso at the bar while waiting for the next free table.
This is where you start walking up to Schloss Mönchstein, the castle.
An ancient castle from the 1300's which was transformed into a privately owned hotel. It's open to the public and serves drinks and coffee with a wonderful view of the city.
Attached to the Museum of Modern Art, M32 is a great restaurant. Even though it's a touristy place, it is a must to get a coffee or a drink on the terrace and inhale the beautiful view over Salzburg. Breakfast is very good too, and they also offer a combination ticket with the museum.
A great activity on weekends depending on the art shows on display.
A hot spot during the Salzburg Festival. We love this restaurant as the food is great, the service is fun, and it's located in one of the busiest streets in Salzburg. Try and get a table outside, especially during summer. Carpaccio, octopus with rucola, risotto, and Heidelbeerdatschi are our favourite dishes.
We come here for different interior accessories and last-minute birthday presents. The ground floor always offers a variety of things you need for your home.
A great fashion store located in the Getreidegasse. You’ll find everything you need.
An interior shop / café / bookstore and a great place to hang out. Get inspired and buy lots of cool stuff. Also make sure to visit the flower shop on the other side of the street.
It sounds a bit morbid but a stroll through Saint Peter’s cemetery is really beautiful and well worth a visit. It's probably the most beautiful cemetery in the world. Please be quiet when entering.
The castle of Hellbrunn and the surrounding park offer a great space to chill out and relax. You can stroll around in the park, hike up to the Monatsschlössel (normal shoes are ok), and visit the famous “Trick Fountains”. It's a fantastic spot to take pictures and pass the time.
The top of Salzburg is the most picturesque place! Go there for sunset and you won’t be disappointed, we promise! There's a bus that goes up to the top if you don't want to hike.
A tiny bar with an immaculate variety of drinks and perfect service. Drop in for a cocktail or a long drink. The barkeep will know what you like.
Get an electro-boat and cruise on the lake.
Breathtaking views over the whole area and worth a visit if you get outside of Salzburg.
A beautiful castle with a surrounding lake. Perfect for walks and if you can make it into the garden at the castle, there is a great swing.
A lovely small wine bar, run by a cute couple. They have a fantastic wine assortment. We love to get “orange wine” and their tasty antipasti platter.
Shop for clothes and accessories in a relaxed atmosphere with a cup of coffee in your hands in a bright and spacious store.
The coolest and best looking sunglasses.
A 1-hour drive from Salzburg and the perfect location for a day trip out of the city.
The perfect hike for an amazing view on Lake Fuschl.
Our thoughts about Salzburg
Salzburg is a very classy, super Austrian, Mozart-esque town with a lot of heritage. The divide between city and nature is practically non-existent and life in general is very laid back. It’s small, cozy, and offers us the highest quality of living. The combination of all these factors makes us love our hometown. Plus, there’s an airport to get away quickly.
