Mozart. UNESCO World Heritage Site. Design. Architecture. Fortress. Museum of Modernity. Festival. Baroque City. Gastronomy. Dumplings. Mountain Panorama. Winter Sports. Universities. Or in a word: Salzburg. Austria's fourth largest city has many things that have made it unique, famous and a popular tourist destination. Rarely has a metropolis been able to create an identity from its historical, architectural and cultural heritage that can be felt everywhere in the cityscape and yet leaves room for much modernity and a colourful urban life. The students of Salzburg's four universities contribute significantly to this. But there is a second trump card: the province of Salzburg. Just outside the borders of the city of 140,000 inhabitants are pretty, independent towns that also invite you to visit: Bergheim to the north of Salzburg lies on the Way of St. James - the pilgrimage basilica of Maria Plain is now surrounded by the Plainberg nature reserve. The idyllic Anif directly south of Salzburg exudes charming rural charm. The fountains at Hellbronn Castle are well worth seeing, and the zoo there is particularly appealing to children. Gröding, within walking distance of Salzburg, offers many leisure and sports activities - the cable car ride up to the 1973-metre-high Untersberg is particularly rewarding. In the typically Austrian village of Hallwang you can experience rural idyll as well as in Anthering, which is only seven kilometres to the north and has the reputation of a nature village.
More than in almost any other travel region in Austria, it is worth choosing a hotel in Salzburger Land as your base from which to visit the towns and sights. The Romantik Hotels & Restaurants have the appropriate charm - small, lovingly furnished houses in historic or architecturally unusual buildings. First-class comfort and courteous service are a matter of course, the family style and hospitable cordiality unusual. And all by itself, your hotel in Salzburger Land becomes the business card of this diverse destination: you feel the special flair of this lively area, get to know the magic of its cuisine already in the hotel's own restaurant, and are pampered all around. And the hosts in your hotel in Salzburger Land know which sights, events and activities will make your holiday a special experience.
Take plenty of time for your holiday in Salzburger Land: every year there are 4,000 cultural events in Salzburg alone; museums and galleries, churches and buildings worth seeing are a dime a dozen, and in summer and winter hiking trails, cycle paths and mountain bike trails or pistes and cross-country ski runs invite you to get active. The Salzburger Land is a region for discoveries - especially culinary ones. You certainly know Nockerln (dumplings) and the Mozartkugeln invented by pastry chef Paul Fürst in 1890. But you want to know what Schottsuppe, Lungauer Schöpsernes or Baldl'n are? How Tennengauer beer meat, spinach doughnuts and Eachtling with chanterelle stuffing taste and why vegetarians can also eat Hasenöhrl? Find out - on your holiday in Salzburger Land.
