... a lot of time to explore, because the next morning it was off to Salzburg! For some reason we found it very easy to get lost around Salzburg, but we've eventually found our bearings thanks to the GPS known as Casey. Seriously, never trust me. I'm no good even with a map. I will get us lost. So we arrived yesterday for our two night stay, and we are in a hotel that's pretty nice. I finally got a pedicure, thank god. The guy at reception recommended ...
... to be a 4 hour long tour of the Alps that ended up being 30 minutes spent looking at a lake. The sad part was we found out the world's largest ice cave was there that we could have gone into had we known. Oh well, it is something to go back and see again! We still had fun! We are now in our hotel packing and going to bed early to leave here at 7 am to head to Germany! I hope it isn't too crazy there with Germany being in the World Cup ...
... were better then Versailles in Paris. Then we went shopping in this district where all of the shop signs are made of beautiful iron, even McDonalds! I got lovely pieces of clothing. I'm glad I packed light! Then we toured the castle here, but after seeing so many gorgeous castles in Paris and Rome, it wasn't very impressive. They had a lot of torture tools on display and a torture room or tour. Ur I ...
... First up was the Hohensalzburg Fortress built high above the township on Monchsburg. To get up to the top we took a zippy little funicular stuffed with as many tourists as it could hold and then some. Luckily only a 30 second ride up to the top and some gorgeous panoramic views were waiting for us. It is so easy to see all the ways in which this town links with it being the film location for The Sound of Music with the Abbey also atop this ...
... beautifully decorated and painted. Using just our sense of direction, we found various paths that we hoped would take us back to the site, and by sheer chance we emerged right opposite the entrance!
A good while was spent cleaning up our bikes as the mud (and cow pats...) had stuck fairly well, but they dried off in the sun while we had a well-earned drink. A very enjoyable ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Auersperg Salzburg
This was an excellent hotel for us when we stayed in April, 2004, over the Easter weekend. The somewhat small room was compensated for by lovely common areas of the hotel, including a luxurious and very welcome sauna-steam bath area with a roof garden and wintergarten style lounge. Service is great, the cleanliness and upkeep are impeccable and the staff are helpful -- although not as helpful or professional in our case as we would have wished for such a high end establishment. Still, it was a comfortable, three-day stay, and we would return without hesitation.
Nice hotel, a little out of the way
For our first trip to Salzburg, we booked this hotel after reading great reviews. We weren't disappointed - the hotel is indeed clean, safe, elegant, top notch really. The staff was pleasant and helped us book tours etc. I had booked the room through Expedia and had no troubles at all there either. The hotel is a bit further from Old City as I would have liked, but it was within walking distance to the train station and in a nice quiet neighborhood. Would recommend and would stay there again.
Luxury for reasonable price!
We are fussy people. This hotel is excellent. Excellent location, excellent rooms, excellent breakfast, excellent staff, free internet service, etc., etc., etc. The staff at Hotel Auersperg were friendly, efficient and very helpful. The room and hotel were immaculate. The breakfast was out of this world! Home-made jams and so much excellent food in a lovely setting. We ordered coffee to our room a couple of mornings and they had it delivered within 2 minutes both mornings! A huge bath to soak together in! Chocolates on your pillows! Quiet hotel so good sleeping! Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel!
Comfort all the way
We have just come back from our second stay and this hotel is just so comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble and they seem to have got all eventualities covered. The breakfast is second to none, the location is good and the atmosphere is
We stayed two nights this October. The hotel is very classy, clean and well located. A bonus was the fact that they have a computer workstation available for guests to use to check email - FREE!
Breakfast was outstanding. The staff helpful and were happy to make tour reservations for us.
It was difficult to find based on the directions from the website - and a "GOLDEN TULIP" sign is so tiny, you need a microscope to see it.
Highly recommend this hotel.
We spent 3 nights here in April 2003. It was a nice hotel, offering many nice amenities. Our room overlooked the garden and the size was average for a European hotel. The staff was helpful when asking for information. The location is a couple of blocks from the main Tourist/shopping area, but everything is within easy walking distance. We gave it 3 "stars" but it should be 3 1/2. Also, for a good restaurant/bar with local ambience, don't miss Die Weisse, just a block or so away.
We spent a long weekend at this hotel at the beginning of February 2003.We have stayed in many hotels all over the wolrd and I can honestly say that this is one of the best.The rooms are beautifully furnished with period furniture and classic colours. The breaksfast each morning was a buffet from a very wide range of hot and cold choices - far too much to attempt to try everything!The staff were extremely helpful.All together well worth it's four star status.
Having read a poor review of this hotel, I was unsure what to expect during my stay. Having now returned I do not understand how anyone can come to a bad conclusion with this hotel. It is immaculately presented, the suite I reserved was first class as was the pleasant service experienced from the staff. The food was superb and the fitness suite always available and not crowded.
I highly reccommend this hotel for its friendly atmosphere, location, luxury and value for money.
My Partner and I stayed here over Xmas 2002 and we were expecting something really nice because of the price and reputation, however, this hotel is a real bum deal.
This is exactly what I wanted in Salzburg. It was very close to the old city and within walking distance of everything. The breakfast was great and the staff was accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
