Insider tips for Salzburg from Hotel Rosenvilla
Walking over the city hills of Salzburg & a lot of pleasure
Walk with a view
My tip for a perfect day in town: start off the morning with a nice walk! Climbing up on Kapuzinerberg is worth it in two ways: on the one hand, it is home to the historical Capucines cloister, which evolved from a medieval fortress also known as the “Trompetenschlösschen”; on the other hand, one has a fantastic panoramic view from up the mountain that offers just the perfect atmosphere for a short break.
Something for every taste: Lunch at Zirkelwirt
The beautiful Old Town of Salzburg is also just the right place for a short lunch break. How about a stop in Pfeiffergasse nearby famous Mozartplatz, for instance? Everybody gets his money’s worth at Zirkelwirt. The great menu contains delicacies from all over the world – from originally Austrian specialties to Mediterranean and international dishes. When the sun is shining, guests can enjoy the beautiful and shadowy garden.
Charming coffee break in the afternoon
My recommendation for the afternoon is Café 220°. The way there alone is worth the visit: The Café is located at Chiemseegasse 5, right in the center of the picturesque Kaiviertel in the southern Old Town. Those who would like to experience Salzburg’s very special charm is perfectly right here – between winding alleys and baroque houses, the Café’s specialties taste even better. The excellent coffee creations are famous far beyond the borders of Salzburg: A fine selection of first-class coffees from the world’s best producing regions is awaiting guests here. Café 220° is open from Tuesday to Saturday.
Cozy and classy dining
The best place for me to enjoy a perfect dinner is the restaurant “Esszimmer”. The restaurant lives up to its name – each guest immediately feels at home in this cozy and – at the same time – classy atmosphere However, the restaurant makes a fine difference by providing an excellent service, a great wine menu and high-quality meals that make you sense the culinary competence on the first bite.
A good glass of wine to round off the day
Being a real wine connoisseur, I suggest rounding off this beautiful day properly. To do so, there is no better place than the “Wein & Co. Bar“ at Platzl. The selection of wines is just immense: choose your very personal favorite wine from about 2000 different bottles – the bar’s employees will be happy to help you! Consequently, you can just relax and enjoy yourself with a good glass of wine. Those who would like to enjoy their favorite wines at home as well can buy it in the adjacent shop. My very personal tip: All glasses of wines are available at half price each Sunday!
