Area & Activities

The Old Town, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, is especially captivating when explored by Fiaker, or horse cab. What was once Salzburg’s main form of transportation is now a romantic ride through history, and an excellent way to view the variety of building styles that are true architectural accomplishments.

Ideally located, guests of the Hotel Goldener Hirsch have the best of the city at the tips of their toes. Just outside of the hotel is the distinguished Getreidegasse road. A city throughway since Roman times, it is home to world-renowned boutiques. For those interested in history, Mozart’s birthplace is a mere minute away and the famous Festival Hall is just across the street. The Hohensalzburg Fortress can be reached on foot in ten minutes and is Europe’s largest castle complex, located in the centre of Salzburg.

Exploring the city’s center provides a glimpse at the Middle Ages, Romanesque, Baroque, and Renaissance periods, as well as an understanding of the discreet native burghers’ houses that date back to the monarchy. A stroll along the Salzach, Salzburg’s picturesque river just two minutes from the hotel, is a romantic way to end the day, providing insight as to why this city inspired so many creative works including the Cathedral, the Franciscan Church, St. Peter’s Monastery, and the Collegiate Church.

Our concierge at Hotel Goldener Hirsch will be happy to assist in arranging any of these outings for you.
