Hundreds of people flock to the city during summer to attend the famous Salzburg Festival, a prominent music festival first established in 1920. The yearly performance of Hofmannsthal's Jedermann on the steps of Salzburg Cathedral is a highlight.

Guest Testimonial

We had the most fabulous holiday.The Schloss Fuschl (especially in the fine weather) was as near to perfect as one could suppose.Our room was totally charming (they upgraded us to a suite) and the restaurant was absolutely world-class.

Hotel Sacher Salzburg is located in the heart of Mozart's city overlooking the Baroque Old Town and Hohensalzburg Fortress. The hotel's ideal central location, at the edge of the River Salzach, makes exploring Salzburg easy; the hotel is just steps from Mozart's Wohnhaus and St Sebastian's Church.

113 elegantly appointed rooms and suites have resplendent marble bathrooms and views overlooking the old town or river. The room categories range from standard rooms to luxurious suites with original oil paintings, quaint antiques and crystal chandeliers giving each room a unique character and atmosphere. We particularly love the Superior Junior Suites for their abundance of space and under floor heating.

When it comes to dining, Hotel Sacher offers three delectable restaurants: international and local specialities are served in the restaurant Roter Salon, award-winning chef Manfred Stüfler commands the gourmet restaurant Zirbelzimmer and rustic burgers are the house specialty at laid-back Salzachgrill. Café Sacher, a typical Austrian coffee house serves the signature Sacher-Torte as well as delicious home-made pastries. Following dinner, retreat to Sacher Bar's outdoor terrace to enjoy sunset river views and cocktails.

Best time to be there

Spring is particularly pretty throughout Europe as the temperate climate awakens the flora of the region. Wet winters result in green springs and the mountains and plains come alive with blossom and flowers. This region enjoys pleasant warm summers and inland regions can be very hot in July and August, coinciding with the busiest periods. May, June and September are recommended due to the pleasant temperatures, though with fewer crowds. Eastern Europe tends to experience very cold winters, especially in inland areas. This is a pretty time to visit and many Eastern and Central European cities and towns hold traditional Christmas Fairs complete with decorated trees and festive entertainment.
