Around town with the Hop-on Hop-off Bus

Dreaming about a short break to Salzburg, Austria? Be sure to plan in a tour of the city – ideally on the Hop-on-Hop-off Bus. This is perhaps the easiest way to get an impression of Salzburg. 

As the name suggests, you can hop off the bus at any sight – and hop back on somewhere else. In summer, you can get the best views of the city of Mozart from the open-top bus.

Exploring Salzburg on a city break: by carriage, rickshaw or e-bike

So, the question is: would you like to tour Salzburg on a classic carriage ride, or are you looking for something a bit different?

What about a rickshaw tour of Salzburg on your weekend break? Your driver-cum-tour guide will fill you in on the squares, churches and alleys you pass. And if that’s a little too adventurous for your taste, you can hire e-bikes at the hotel and see the city at your own pace.

Time for some shopping

A 3-night Salzburg city break without shopping? No way! Start your Shopping.TIME at the Altstadthotel Wolf-Dietrich – your hotel for short breaks to Austria – and explore the Linzergasse and its boutiques.

Crossing the Staatsbrücke bridge, you’ll land in Salzburg’s most famous shopping street, the Getreidegasse. Here you can browse boutiques, souvenir shops, international brands, perfumeries, shoe stores, jewellers and confectionery shops.

Time for museums and culture

Calling all culture lovers: be sure to check out one of Salzburg’s numerous museums on your city break in Salzburg. The Cathedral Museum, the Residenz and the Museum der Moderne are particularly worth seeing. And no weekend break in Salzburg is complete without a visit to the Hohensalzburg Fortress. This World Heritage Site is best reached via funicular train. Ready for your Culture.TIME in Salzburg?
