UNESCO World Heritage Site and cultural city located on the Salzach River

Salzburg's attractions are some of the best known and most beautiful in the world. In 1997, UNESCO named this beautiful city on the Salzach a World Heritage Site. The birthplace of Mozart is always worth a visit.

Salzburg is only an hour's drive from Lämmerhof Hotel. Park your car at the gates of Salzburg city centre: at the Neutor Tunnel you will always find space in the parking garage located just a few steps away from the sights in Salzburg Old Town. Or use the Park and Ride car park south of Salzburg. This can be easily accessed when arriving from the south.

Through the Getreidegasse in summer and winter

Many romantic streets run through Salzburg's Old Town, but the most famous is undoubtedly the Getreidegasse. Forged gilded signs outside the local shops really highlight the special charm of the Old Town. Visit Mozart's birth place or make a shopping tour through the classy boutiques of the old town of Salzburg.

Especially in advent season the capital of Salzburg is a special place to visit. When the days become shorter and the streets and houses are decorated with shiny lights you should visit the Salzburger Christkindlmarkt. In front of the Salzburger Dom and on the Residenzplatz you can try delicious christmas bakery products, sweet punch and handmade decoration for your Christmas tree.
