Tips for your Salzburg Music Festival Trip

Salzburg sightseeing by horse-drawn carriage

During the festival season, horse-drawn carriages are at their peak. A carriage ride through Salzburg is simply romantic. Find a carriage at Residenzplatz near the cathedral and get ready for your tour of the city.

Would you like to book a carriage ride for a special occasion? We’ve got some interesting ideas and will be happy to help!

Take in 360° views of the Baroque Old Town

We recommend paying a visit to the Hohensalzburg Fortress for the best views of the city. Take time for a tour and soak up the one-of-a-kind architecture.

Did you know? The Hohensalzburg Fotress is the largest completely preserved castle in Central Europe.

Enjoy Salzburg’s unique quality of life

If you’re looking for a bit of relaxation on your Festival holiday, Salzburg has plenty of parks and green spaces perfect for a little break. Look forward to time outdoors as you let the sounds of Mozart ring in your ears.

Stroll through Mirabell Palace & Garden

The Baroque Mirabell Palace is just a short walk from the Altstadthotel Wolf-Dietrich Salzburg Festival hotel. Take a tour and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the parks and fountains. After all, Salzburg time is Culture.TIME.

Explore Mozart’s birth house

A must-see! Mozart seems so close here where there is so much to hear, see and experience. The Mozart family once called the Getreidegasse home, and his birthplace is full of fascinating information.

At the Altstadthotel, we have mountain e-bikes and city e-bikes for hire. More than 180 kilometres of cycling trails await you in the city and its surroundings – perfect for tours along the Salzach River, through parks and our area’s beautiful landscapes.
