A weekend in Salzburg...
You spend a city trip to Salzburg and don't know what you want to see and do during this time? Here you will find a few inspirations on how your stay in Salzburg will definitely become a highlight!
#1 Sightseeing yes, stress no
Autumn is the perfect time to explore Salzburg and to visit one or the other sights.
For example, Mirabell Castle or Hellbrunn Castle with its impressive garden architecture are the perfect scenery for a long walk or simply to enjoy the sun and relax.
Hohensalzburg Fortress is Salzburg's most famous landmark and definitely worth a visit. You can reach the top either on foot or by train. Every Sunday at 11.45 the tower musicians play on the trumpet tower.
During a walk through the old town there is no way past the famous Getreidegasse, the heart of Salzburg's city centre. Besides some shopping possibilities and restaurants there is also Mozart's birthplace and you can do sightseeing almost incidentally while shopping.
#2 Culinary delights
After a nice autumn walk it is time for a refreshment!
If you are more interested in traditional Austrian specialities instead of all the international offers, you will certainly find what you are looking for at the "Wilder Mann" guesthouse. The traditional restaurant is located in the middle of the Getreidegasse and spoils its guests with down-to-earth homemade food such as Schweinsbraten, Salzburger Beuscherl with knödel, homemade sweets and much more!
Only 5 minutes away is one of the most famous coffee houses in Austria - Café Tomaselli. Besides first class coffee there are also numerous old Austrian homemade desserts like apple strudel, Guglhupf and Co. which you should not miss.
Alternatively you can visit the Republic Café. On weekends, musicians regularly perform live and entertain their guests in a cool and urban atmosphere while enjoying a relaxing cup of coffee.
#3 Drinking a glass of wine
After a day full of new impressions it is time to end the evening with a glass of wine! The Weinstöckl is ideal for this. Almost exclusively Austrian wines are served.
