Holidays in Salzburg

Fall in love with the storybook setting on holidays in Salzburg - with its alpine backdrop, refined palatial residences and delightful old town. Discover a unique allure and nostalgia that never fails to charm.

Surrounded by mountains, overlooked by the enchanting Hohensalzburg Fortress and separated by the Salzach River – there is certainly more to Salzburg than meets the eye. Feel the spirit of days gone by as you stroll through Getreidegasse, with its wrought iron signs and interesting mix of shops. Then look beyond the grandeur and beauty of this postcard worthy city and find incredible culinary trails, a growing arts scene and a musical heritage, that runs through its veins.

Salzburg Christmas market breaks.

Salzburg Christmas market breaks

Salzburg’s stunning historic centre looks fantastic at the best of times, but at Christmas it becomes almost Disneyesque. The beautiful Cathedral Square comes alive with traditional wooden stalls, illuminated by thousands of twinkling lights and an unforgettable atmosphere. You can buy high quality gifts, with everything from handcrafted decorations and tree ornaments to winter fashions and jewellery. Make sure to try the delicious Christmas cookies with a glass of glühwein or hot chocolate to warm yourself in the winter chill. The chic NH Salzburg City, a modern hotel across the river, next to the captivating Mirabelle Park, is a great place to rest your weary feet for the night.
