Don’t be fooled by the understated exterior. Once through the bulky old door, guests of Hotel Goldener Hirsch are transported into a classic Austrian wonderland. Original antiques, handmade furniture and opulent rag rugs bring its 15th century heritage to life.
Located in Getreidegasse, Salzburg’s most famous – and beautiful – shopping street, the hotel is across from the Festival Hall, and minutes from many major sights, including Mozart’s birthplace. Each of its 70 rooms and five suites boasts different décor but the same genuine Salzburg warmth and style. No wonder a long list of artists, like pianist Arthur Rubenstein, have been loyal guests.
The hotel’s two authentic Austrian restaurants and renowned bar are Salzburg’s top pre- and post-theatre haunts. Try the bar’s most famous cocktail, ‘Rendezvous with Suzanne’, as you relax in its airy, covered inner courtyard.
