Surroundings & Offers

Set among some of Salzburg’s most exclusive buildings, the Radisson Blu Hotel Altstadt is the perfect point of departure for exploring all of the biggest sights that Mozart’s home town has to offer. Located in the heart of the city on the banks of the Salzach, visitors can either get their bearings during a gentle stroll along the river, or take the plunge and head straight for the historic city centre.

Only 300m to Mozart's Birthplace

The hotel is just a few minutes’ walk from the Salzburg Festival venues, Getreidegasse and Mozart’s birthplace. Experience the place where the musical genius made his first forays into the world of classical music more than 250 years ago.

UNESCO World Heritage

You will soon see that Salzburg has a seemingly endless stream of impressive landmarks. Salzburg Cathedral, Hohensalzburg Castle and Schloss Mirabell are all just a short distance from the Radisson Blu Hotel Altstadt. Wherever you turn, the history of this cathedral city comes to life, so it hardly comes as a surprise to learn that Salzburg’s historic old town was added to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list in 1996.

And if you would like to experience Salzburg from a different perspective, a walk up the Mönchsberg hill or a trip to the weekly Schrannenmarkt opens up some unforgettable vistas and a whole new way of looking at the city.

One thing will become immediately obvious to you the moment you arrive – the Radisson Blu Hotel Altstadt is the only place to get a truly authentic feel for Salzburg’s historic charm.
