The perfect place to start
Hotel Heffterhof’s location makes it the ideal place from which to explore the city of Salzburg or the surrounding region. This leafy suburb here is just a stone’s throw from Salzburg’s old town, so you can soon reach the heart of the action. As a UNESCO World Heritage site, the historical town of Salzburg can offer a wide range of sightseeing opportunities and items of cultural interest. There are lots of outdoor sports options in the region – in the mountains, in and on the water, and in the skies. Moreover, the scenic Salzkammergut region is just a short trip away and offers myriad beautiful places and views.
A stay in this, one of Austria’s most beautiful states, wouldn’t be complete without a walk around the historical ‘old town’ of Salzburg – not surprisingly, a UNESCO world heritage site.
The list of sights worth seeing in Salzburg is long: The house Mozart was born in, the place he later lived, many old churches and the cathedral, Hanger 7, Mirabell gardens, Linzergasse – an old lane with countless cafés and ice cream parlours, Museum der Moderne – and more. Enjoy a shopping spree in the old town, one of the city’s shopping centres or the outlet centre on the edge of the city.
The Heffterhof team can also give you tips on some of Salzburg’s better-kept secrets.
