Weather in Salzburg

Salzburg is at its glorious best in the summer; despite the fact it can rain, flowers are in full bloom and the temperatures are pleasantly warm. But this is also the time when the city is thronging with tourists. It pays to visit in the shoulder season when the city is less crowded - go in September, October, March or April, and the temperatures are still relatively comfortable during the day. November usually marks the first snowfall in the city. Average temperatures fall to a chilly -6°C (20°F) and some attractions shut down for the winter, which lasts until February. For ski lovers, however, there are plenty of resorts to choose from within an hour or two of the city.

Hotel Stein

One of the hottest hotels in town is, without doubt, Hotel Stein. Commanding terrific views of the river and reached by bridge from the Old Town, it combines sexy modernity with classic style. Boasting a history dating back to 1399, its rooms range from the glamorous to the super-chic.

Yoho

Among the cheapest digs in town, Yoho is perhaps the most unique lodging in Salzburg. The rooms are comfortable and boast impressive mountain views, while the bar is always busy with young backpackers. What’s more, The Sound of Music is screened every day at 7pm in the TV room – take that as you will.

Hotel Goldener Hirsch

The hotel of choice for celebrities and royalty over the years, the Goldener Hirsch (the Golden Stag) is a Salzburg institution. Highly exclusive yet exuding genuine hospitality, the hotel has a unique old-world atmosphere combining the rustic with the luxurious. The hotel boasts two superb restaurants and a wonderfully decorated bar.

Wolf-Dietrich Hotel

The Wolf-Dietrich Hotel comprises the Altstadthotel and the Residenz, two houses that face each other near the city centre. In addition to being very comfortable, it is also healthy and environmentally friendly, being powered only by green electricity, serving organic food in the restaurant and incorporating feng shui into the design.

Haus Wartenberg

Housed in a 400-year-old building, and furnished with antiques and homey bric-a-brac, Haus Wartenberg exudes plenty of character and charm. Rooms are snug and cosy rather than spacious, but that only adds to the warmth of the place. It's within walking distance of Salzburg's Old Town.

Hotel Bristol

Looming over the river this stately property preserves the feel of a classic 19th-century hotel. First built in 1619 it opened for guests in the late 1800s and was the first hotel to have electricity in the city – earning it the name 'Electric Hotel'. It has hosted everyone from monarchs to Sigmund Freud. Today expect a blend of traditional atmosphere with contemporary service.
