Our places to stay in Salzburgerland include several in or near the old city of Salzburg, synonymous with Mozart and its annual music and arts festival. Roughly triangular in shape, the province has much more to offer than just Salzburg. All around are mountains and lakes: in the extreme south is the Grossglockner peak, Austria’s highest, and a little to the north is Honigkogel, near Zell am See, not so high, but claiming to be the geographical centre of Europe.
We have found especially charming places to stay on the cluster of lakes to the north of Salzburg, but throughout the province of Salburgerland there is an interesting range to choose from: guesthouses (gasthofe), restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out.
