    Inspired by Salzburg’s rich musical heritage, Goldgasse Hotel has opened in the city’s exclusive Goldgasse neighbourhood, where small arts and crafts shops intermingle with charming cafés and bakeries. Housed in a 700-year-old building, the newly refurbished 16 -room hotel and restaurant brings a warm, cosy residence with playful contemporary touches, perfect for those seeking pared-back luxury in a prime location. Situated right in the heart of Salzburg’s historic quarter, otherwise known as ‘Mozartcity’, Goldgasse Hotel is within walking distance from beautiful squares, gardens, festival halls, Salzburg Cathedral, the Hohensalzburg Fortress and Mozart’s birthplace.

    With a personal, attentive service at its heart, Goldgasse feels more like a private home. A warm welcome by the concierge replaces the traditional hotel lobby, providing guests with one point of contact for every request and need, whether it’s to arrange in-room breakfast or a private visit to a museum.

    Refreshed throughout and with a new name playing tribute to its location, the boutique hotel takes inspiration from the iconic Salzburg Festival.

    The 13th century building, used by coppersmiths from 1573 and later converted into a hotel, has been honoured and restored, with many historical features now uncovered and left intact, including frescoes, original timber, stucco and old stone floors.

    Traditional materials such as Salzburg oak, porcelain tiles and glass have been revisited and complimented with lively colour accents to create a comfortable, timeless place to relax in.

    Named after a different Opera, each of the spacious 16 guestrooms and suites offer a contemporary interpretation of a tenor’s home, with oversized wardrobes and walls used as a canvas to depict some of the most representative Operas of the Salzburg Festival.

    For added drama and romance, the Jedermann suite offers breath-taking views of Salzburg’s cityscape from a private roof terrace.
