Hotel Goldener Hirsch
Despite its quaint exterior, the Goldener Hirsch caters to an upper-crust crowd. This
ancient inn is a place where you can dine in your tuxedo before heading for the nearby
Festival concert halls.
Salzburg's best-known 19th Century luxury hotel, long known as the "Österreichischer Hof," is
now owned by the management of Vienna's Hotel Sacher. It offers spectacular
views of the Altstadt and the Hohensalzburg Fortress from its location on the
right bank of the River Salzach.
Schloss Fuschl Resort & Spa
This castle hotel and resort was built as a hunting lodge in 1450. It's hidden in a private
85-acre park on Lake Fuschl, 20 minutes by car from Salzburg. The hotel has a
9-hole golf course, tennis courts, boat rentals, and fishing.
A garden setting atop the Mönchsberg, twice-weekly chamber concerts, a wedding chapel, a
fine restaurant, and 17 luxurious bedrooms appeal to well-heeled tourists with a taste for
the romantic. (A few rooms fall into the "moderate" range.)
This long-established hotel overlooks the Mirabell Gardens. It has an indoor
pool and is connected to the Paracelsus Spa. Non-smoking and
handicapped-accessible rooms are available.
