Make holiday rental accommodation or an apartment in Salzburg, Austria your home away from home

Salzburg, Austria is one of the most attractive and popular cities in the whole of Europe. The city of Mozart is renowned around the world for the sheer number of attractions in Salzburg, the amazing number of things to do in Salzburg and the famous Salzburg Christmas markets. Travelling independently and staying in private, self catering Salzburg accommodation means that you can really tailor your holiday to include the things that interest you most, and see the attractions in Salzburg that really fuel your imagination, rather than having an itinerary designed for you by travel agents.

Things to do in Salzburg, Austria

There are some magnificent attractions in Salzburg, Austria, many of which can be found by following the tourist crowds which herd around the most popular sites, including the Salzburg Cathedral, St Peter’s Monastery, Mozart Square and the most fashionable shopping street, Getreidegasse. Whilst these are well worth exploring, evenings are the best times, as many of the crowds will have dispersed. There are some wonderful, less known attractions in Salzburg too. Hellbrunn Castle, the Augustiner Brewery, the Festspielhauser festival hall and the world’s oldest zoo, the Zoo Hellbrunn are well worth visiting from any self catering Salzburg accommodation, and will be less crowded than the more famous sites.

The Salzburg region is hugely popular all year round. During the summer months, the Salzburg Festival brings people from around the world to enjoy music (especially Mozart), theatre and fine foods, whilst during the winter, the Salzburg Christmas Markets have bought the city to the forefront of Christmas holiday destinations, with many tourists spending Christmas Day in Salzburg to experience the truly festive events.

There are a huge number of attractions in Salzburg’s surrounding regions, perfect for anyone spending a few weeks in Salzburg accommodation. The beautiful lake region of Salkammergut are an outdoor wonderland for walking and riding from Salzburg accommodation, especially if you can take in the forgotten castle of Burg Mauterndorf or the bizarre Eisriesenwelt Ice Caves Werfen, the longest ice caves in the world. There are also a great range of golf courses in the immediate surroundings of Salzburg, open to anyone staying in a Salzburg apartment that can provide a handicap certificate.

During the winter, Salzburg becomes a true winter wonderland. Aside from the Salzburg Christmas Markets, Christmas Day in Salzburg can be spent relaxing in one of the hot water spas and natural springs which gurgle from the surrounding mountains, or testing the slopes of one of the many ski resorts within half an hour of Salzburg apartments. The Salzburg Snow Shuttle is a bus service operating from December until March, taking those in Salzburg accommodation to the Salzburg ski resorts.

Wonderful accommodation, we could not have asked for more and that view is what you see -stunning. Ideal location and only a 10 minute walk into the centre of everything. We were visiting the Christmas markets and did a few additional tours. I would recommend the Sound of Music Tour - very funny and gives you a good opportunity to have a tour round the local area. We also did a Lakes and Mountains tour but maybe November is not the best time to do this as there was a lot of fog! Hellbrun Palace was lovely and easy to reach by bus. Overall an enjoyable stay and would definitely stay in the apartment again.

On arrival, after some admin. stuff, Aurelia explained all the places to visit. The property itself was as it was in the pictures. Immaculately clean with all amenities. It was wam (had to turn down the thermostat) and very comfortable. The heated floor in the bathroom was such a bonus. The property was just across the border from Austria. So we were able to have breakfast in Germany and then nipped acroos the border to have lunch. There are lots of places to eat and prices are reasonable. The property has a nice mountain vista around it. You could almost re-enact the Sound of Music part where Julie Andrews runs up the hill and start singing. You can drive to Salzburg and leave the car in one of the many park and ride places. We left ours near the zoo and cost about 3 euros to park all day. Alternatively, you can catch a bus (return fare 6 Euros). They are very punctual. The famous mountain pass (Grossglockner) is about 30 minutes drive away. Unfortunately, they are open only in May so was not able to go. Hoping to return in the summer to try this out. In conclusion, the property was a delight to stay in and I would recommend it to anyone who just wants to chill out or explore the many picturesque places around it. William
