Salzburg and Surroundings

Discover Salzburg and the surrounding area Excursion destinations for connoisseurs and slow travelers. A stroll through the Getreidegasse is best done in the early morning. Then you can enjoy the traditional shops of the city in peace. Treat yourself to a coffee in one of the Salzburg coffee houses. We can recommend the Café Tomaselli near the cathedral or the Café Bazar on the other bank of the Salzach. The cathedral quarter with its museums is worth a visit. Just like the cathedral. A tip: visit the Salzburg Heimatwerk and have a Salzburg dirndl tailored to you. The Hohensalzburg Fortress is worth seeing. The easiest way to get there is by elevator. Also nearby is the Sankt Peter cemetery, where the graves tell stories of people from Salzburg.



The area around Salzburg also offers interesting excursion destinations. Check out the open air museum. There you can walk through Salzburg's farming villages on foot. Drive out to Anthering and hike to the mill, where flour is still ground today. Enjoy the fish specialties at Grüll. Maybe you would like to try white caviar there? Take a trip to Obernberg, the place where the Christmas song "Silent Night, Holy Night" was premiered? There is a lot to discover in and around Salzburg Austria. Take your time and enjoy your stay.
