One day in Salzburg


Have you always wanted to visit Salzburg, the city of Mozart, but don’t know exactly what you want to see and experience during your stay? Why don’t we start with a good breakfast? At our Cocoon Hotel Salzburg, you can help yourself to our breakfast buffet early in the morning and recharge your batteries for the day ahead with a good cup of coffee. From there, you can explore the beautiful city and discover all its beauties. Continue on foot in the direction of the old town, or more precisely to Getreidegasse. After around 20 pleasant minutes, you will arrive in the heart of Salzburg, which attracts many visitors with its unique charm and Mozart’s birthplace. Here you can visit Mozart’s birthplace, explore the cathedral square and browse through the various shops. Now it’s time for a break with coffee and cake. There are various cafés you can visit. How about a slice of cake in Austria’s oldest coffee house, Café Tomaselli? Or a particularly good cup of coffee in the charming ambience of Café Bazar on the other side of the Salzach? Well energised, we now continue on to THE landmark of Salzburg: Hohensalzburg Fortress. The fortress railway, which runs every 10 minutes, takes you to the top of the fortress in just one minute – or for the more athletic among you, you can reach your destination on foot in 20 minutes. Once at the top, you can either take a guided tour to learn about the history of the castle or go on a discovery tour on your own. As the evening slowly approaches, you’re probably wondering where you can enjoy a delicious meal. Don’t worry, we have a few recommendations for you. How about a traditional snack in Austria’s largest beer hall? Here you can get your beer straight from the wooden barrels in your stone mug and find the right food to go with it in the various stalls of the “Schmankerlgang”, which are arranged in the style of a traditional market hall. There is something for every taste, from crispy radish, meat loaf or pretzels to Steckerlfisch. To round off the day, enjoy a good drink in our Cocoon Bar and a successful day draws to a close.
