Ideal hotel location in Salzburg's Old Town
What’s known as Mozart’s city has a lot more to offer than just a celebrated son. With the Alps to the south and rolling hills to the north, Salzburg is geographically stunning. It is also lauded as a capital of baroque architecture and the setting for the world-famous Sound of Music.
Salzburg's Old Town, named a UNESCO world heritage site in 1997, is especially captivating when explored by Fiaker, or horse cab. What was once Salzburg’s main form of transportation is now a romantic ride through history, and an excellent way to view the variety of building styles that are true architectural accomplishments.
The hotel is ideally located in Salzburg's old town and guests of the Hotel Goldener Hirsch have the best of the city at the tips of their toes. Just outside of the hotel is the distinguished Getreidegasse road. A city throughway since Roman times, it is home to world-renowned boutiques. For those interested in history, Mozart’s birthplace is a mere minute away and the famous Festival Hall is just across the street. The Hohensalzburg Fortress can be reached on foot in 10 minutes.
