A glorious city easily accessible from all main European locations, Salzburg is a wonderful destination in the heart of Austria. Bustling with history and still unspoilt by tourism, the city offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy an unforgettable urban break as a family with a myriad of monuments, magnificent buildings and countless romantic corners for the most intrepid travellers. Those who prefer to enjoy a bit of old European flavour will not be disappointed, as the city of Salzburg is home to one of the most enchanting old quarters to be found in Austria amongst quiet cobbled lanes and medieval buildings. Salzburg offers many lively fiestas throughout the year, all of which are family-friendly, such as the city festival in summer where you can enjoy exquisite music as well as traditional gastronomy.
Renting holiday accommodation in Salzburg
With Salzburg being rather popular with visitors, your best bet is to rent holiday accommodation. A holiday apartment will give you the freedom to plan your visit the way you want it and the luxury of having your own space. Salzburg welcoming local community will be delighted to learn that you’ve chosen their stunning city for your holiday. A hotel is not such an attractive option when you can enjoy your very own holiday apartment in which you can put your feet up after a long day out and about strolling down the old quarter, exploring enchanting palaces and discovering incredible museums.
Where to stay in Salzburg
Only the locals will be able to tell you where to find the most delicious restaurant to sample the juiciest Austrian cuisine, or the quaintest cafe away from the tourist trail to enjoy the finest coffee and most scrumptious sachertorte in town, a mouth-watering chocolate cake. And of course, having your very own holiday rental means that you can always do a load of laundry before heading out the next day to visit that enchanting little park that your neighbour mentioned over a glass of wine. Why would you choose to stay in an overpriced soulless hotel when you can enjoy so much more space and privacy in a holiday rental? HouseTrip offers an excellent selection of holiday accommodation in the form of charming houses in the suburbs and modern apartments throughout Salzburg’s historical centre. A home away from home, renting holiday accommodation with HouseTrip is the surest way to enjoy the best that this stunning city has to offer in the most authentic way.
Salzburg with the family
Start your tour by exploring Hohensalzburg Castle, the mighty fortress that presides over the city before heading towards the old quarter to visit Mozart’s childhood home. For lunch, find a table at one of the many squares to recharge your batteries with a hearty meal and indulge in some people-watching before visiting the Dome, a magnificent Baroque cathedral. Don’t forget to take the Sound of Music tour, a charming outing to the famous movie’s filming locations that is ideal to enjoy with children and will delight the youngest in the family. Salzburg hosts many markets that sell mouth-watering fresh produce, making a self-catering rental a wonderful option to ensure that you sample the best gastronomy to be found in the region; the perfect way to enjoy the comforts of your own home during your family holiday.
