Tips for your culture break to Salzburg


Hardly any other city offers as many museums as Salzburg. They are all worth a visit, time and again. Here is a brief overview of some of the museums you will find here:

  • DomQuartier Salzburg
  • Haus der Natur
  • Mozart’s Birthplace & Residence
  • Museum der Moderne art museum on the Mönchsberg
  • Salzburg Museum
  • Neue Residenz
  • Fortress Museum
  • Hangar-7 Aviation Museum
Hohensalzburg Fortress

The Hohensalzburg Fortress is the largest completely preserved castle complex in Central Europe and the symbol of the city of Mozart.

Get amazing views! Take in the vistas of the Baroque Old Town below, and then explore the imposing 11th century castle complex from the inside! If you have time, treat yourself to a tour of the princely chambers, the torture chamber and other well-preserved rooms. Ascend the Festungsberg hill either via Austria’s oldest cable car or a short but steep walk with fabulous panoramic views.

Salzburger Landestheater

Opera, musicals, theatre and ballet! Just a 10-minute walk from the Altstadthotel, you’ll find the dazzling Salzburg Landestheater.

The home of cultural delights. With around 400 performances a season, the Salzburg Landestheater is one of the best cultural institutions of the city. Ask us for a calendar of events.

Marionette Theater

This special place is not only for children. Adults will be amazed, too. Amazed by what you ask? By puppet shows where nimble hands guide marionettes from a height of two metres.

See something special! Because of the special technique used, the Salzburg Marionette Theater was included in the list of intangible UNESCO Cultural Heritage Sites. Fairytales, musicals and operas are performed here.

Palace concerts

The Baroque Mirabell Palace is just a stone’s throw from the Altstadthotel Wolf-Dietrich. This UNESCO World Heritage Site wows visitors with its gardens, and concerts are held in the events hall.

Ask us for a calendar of events! We will also be happy to reserve tickets for you.
