Prost, cheers and to your health in Salzburg

There are things which we, the people of Salzburg, are very proud of. On the one hand there are disciplines like skiing, wearing dirndl or hosting festivals. On the other hand, there are also completely different, less known reasons to be able to brag a bit. You would like an example?

In the quite contemplative city of Mozart, there is a considerable concentration of really recommendable cocktail bars, local restaurants and co. The Salzburg people know how to spend their evening over a drink or two in a nice atmosphere. I'm talking here after many years of personal experience. :)

And since I have tested every single restaurant several times, they all carry my personal seal of approval, so to speak!

Anyone who wants to enjoy the luxury which Salzburg also offers in the evening should treat themselves to a cocktail in one of these bars. Here it is difficult to decide between all the unusual and exclusive creations. It's best to simply order several drinks.

Between after-work and clubbing

I also have tips which are ideal for after-working or to end the day with a few drinks. Maybe the first stop of an exuberant party night is in one of the restaurants? If you meet in the summer for drinks in the garden of Flip or Monkey's, you never know. ;)

In any case, all the restaurants are located in the middle of the old town and also ideal for a drink after a city stroll!

Where the beer tastes best

Here you will probably find the highest density of Salzburg’s true locals - probably because these places are nearly all well-hidden. Nowhere is the beer cooler and the white wine “spritzer” more refreshing. My personal insider tip is the Andi Hofer Weinstube - definitely order a "Luxuskanderl" order. But don’t tell anyone ;)
