Magical nature and culture in the world city of Salzburg
With Vienna, Salzburg is the most visited city of culture in Austria. Mozart, the Salzburg Festival (Festspiele) and Salzburg's many sights are the main reasons why so many visitors make their way to the city year after year. The beauty of this city which nestles by the Alps has been shaped by its culture, its artists and its history, and its picturesque location in the midst of lakes and mountains also makes a big contribution to the city's unique atmosphere. You should certainly look forward to spending a few days in Salzburg.
Whether it is cycling, climbing, swimming or skiing: Salzburg's proximity to nature makes any number of superb sports opportunities possible - including in the city itself. Almost no other city of this size offers so many areas of greenery, open spaces, walking and cycling paths. And as peaceful islands in an urban work of art, Salzburg's city mountains are an invitation for excursions, for hiking, and for cycling.
Salzburg has also been crowned Austria's most cycling friendly city and this hasn't gone unnoticed at the Eco-Suite Hotel, the green city hotel in Salzburg, which offers its guests bikes to hire as well as E-bikes on which they can explore the city. The city centre is around 10 minutes away via the Salzach cycle path behind the hotel.
A city of cultural possibilities
As a unique flagship event for this region of culture, the Salzburg Festival (Salzburger Festspiele) draws celebrities and lovers of culture to the festival district every summer. A variety of artistic and cultural distractions are also on offer during the rest of the year: from Salzburg's many museums, galleries and exhibitions, to classical concerts, to younger and more avant-garde art, the calendar of events is packed.
From fun, to shopping, to nightlife
The widest range of gourmet restaurants in a single Austrian province, as well international cuisine, typical coffee houses, traditional inns and shaded beer gardens all ensure that no gastronomic desire goes unfulfilled in Salzburg.
Those who love shopping will feel at home at the Europark shopping centre, the Designer Outlet and in the many shops in the old town.
