Where to stay in Salzburg

There’s no better area to stay in the city where Mozart was born than the historical city center, a World Heritage Site. Salzburg's hub offers comfortable accommodations nestled between a rich array of sights. The Salzach River cuts directly through town, dividing the city into east and west. Look for accommodations in the Altstadt, tucked in between the river and the city’s mountain, Monchsberg. For budget-minded travelers, try a centrally located youth hostel or small hotel. If price isn’t an issue, splurge on Austrian luxury in an upscale hotel.

  • We thought this was going to be a train, but it is an elevator and it takes you up to some fabulous views overlooking the city.  more »
  • If it were not for the Salzburg Card, which included that ELEVATOR ride, I wouldn't pay. Instead, I would either walk up or walk on.  more »
  • Great way to the top. Keep your coupon from the fortress for discount on this lift. Great to hike at the top.  more »

  • A quick life ride up let's you see the whole of Salzburg from near the skies. Beautiful views
  • Great views and lift itself was modern and efficient. Unfortunately the rest of the construction is not child friendly and if you've got prams and kids you can't avoid lugging them up and down concrete stairs to get in and out.
  • Must see in Salzburg. You will get very nice view of the whole city, including the castle!
  • Nice but not included in town day ticket!
  • Easily accessible look-out point. The views are spectacular as you can see the Salzburg fortress from here. There is restaurant close by and if you dine there, you can get a free elevator ticket down.
