Travel Blogs from Salzburg
So these are a few of my favourite things... I was so excited for Austria, because I knew we would get to do the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, where they filmed the musical back in 1964. But first, we went to Vienna. We were only in Vienna for one night, so we headed out for dinner and had these amazing schnitzels, maybe the best schnitzels out there. They were thin, and the coating tasted similar to KFC almost, but less greasy. Such a good ...
... brief view of this gorgeous lake and mountains mom and I got dropped off in the National Park's administration building for an hour to watch a video of what the Alps look like instead of actually going to go see them. The video was like Dad just turned on Netflix, so mom and I found coffee instead until the guide picked us back up. The guide herself was a little crazy but mom and I made the best of the day by laughing about everything. It ...
... go in them. I have no desire to see anything like that. The best part of the night was a concert we went to in the castle tonight where 3 violinists and a cellist played Mozart and other famous composers. A pianist played one beautiful piece with the group as well. We had second row seats that were perfect! The concert was held in a beautiful room in the palace from the 1400's. A perfect end to the ...
... are different here than in Swiss. I am so glad I went on the 8 hour train ride from Interlaken to Salzburg otherwise I would have missed the beauty of Austria since Salzburg is more in the north. The train went through, around, up, down, and over the Alps and I looked outside the window like a kid. There were many times when we went through a tunnel and suddenly would exit and be in a valley filled with lush green pastures and quaint (and typical) Austrian ...
... delighted to find a tarmac road leading back down to Lofer, but Hubby decided we should ride down the tracks through the forest, so we set off.
My intrepidity (is that a real word?) got less and less as we descended – first through a field of bullocks who eyed me very suspiciously, then the forest path got more and more narrow with bigger and bigger cow-pats/tree roots/big stones and then steps! We ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Wolf-Dietrich Salzburg
This hotel is so perfectly located that I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to simply be able to enjoy the sights of the city without the hassles of driving and parking.
Hotel staff was friendly, helpful and spoke English very well. There is a pool, which is a rare find, but we were so busy, we didn't have time for a swim! Our room was more than adequate for the five of us, beds were comfy and the decor was very nice. An added bonus was the deliciously varied continental breakfast with coffee on the patio and the offering of coffee and cake in the afternoon. A lovely touch!
The price was completely reasonable considering the amazing location, the number of people in our family and the additional food. This is a hotel that will help make your stay in Salzburg even more memorable!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Wolf-Dietrich Salzburg
We had a Greart time at this hotel we stayed June13 for 5 nights 2004. The location is the best, close to everything. It is only about 7 euro taxi ride from the train station. Desk very helpful room great clean and large. We had the superior room, with a great balcony and view. Breakfast was good. A food store around the corner and a laundry mat 1 block away. Restaurants every were. Old town only a 7 minute walk. We will be back.

Excellent location, hotel, staff
This was the perfect hotel for Salzburg. Quiet street, beautifully furnished rooms, most attentive staff and excellent access to old Salzburg. If you are traveling to Salzburg, this is the hotel to stay at.
Great location, friendly staff, but a few problems
I spent three days at the Wolfe Dietrich Hotel. Despite the fact that the staff was warm and welcoming, I feel this hotel left much to be desired. The room was small and cramped, as was the bathroom. The breakfast buffet was well stocked. There is no comfortable lobby area or bar. I enjoyed my stay--loved the location--but I would probably look for accomodations elsewhere in Salzburg for a hotel with nicer, more comfortable and spacious rooms.
We've just returned from a three night stay in Salzburg and can recommend the Wolf Dietrich. We stayed in the main hotel (not the residenz) and had a quiet rear room (#21). The room was lovely, plenty of space and well decorated with nice firm beds. However, when it rains the constant dripping from the gutters on the roof next door was not pleasant unless you closed the windows. Our friends has room 31, one floor up with a little balcony whci didn't have this problem. Breakfast was a smorgasbord of meats,cereals, fruits and so forth including toast. One of the best we had. The staff were very helpful with restaurant recommendations and chit-chat and they also have a free internet. (not that I want to spend my holiday sending e-mails!). The hotel is a 10 minute walk across the bridge from the old town and the tourist district, but not far enough away to make it a problem as Salzburg is really quite small anyway.
Very Friendly and Helpful Staff
Very nice accommodations, terrific location, and very, very helpful and friendly staff (Truly superb!). We received assistance with restaurant recommendations (they were wonderful) as well as with reservations to the Marionette Theatre. This is THE place we will stay when we return to Salzburg!
Recently returned from a three night stay at the Wolf-Dietrich. The place doesn't look anything special from the outside, but we found it friendly and charming inside. We were very happy with the "family room", which was nice and large for 2 adults & 2 kids (unlike some other "family rooms" we've experienced elsewhere). There was even an attached "sitting room" that wasn't officially part of our room but we which used frequently; it had a few boxes with some kids' toys, books and videos -- a nice bonus. There's a small indoor pool with sauna. The staff was very helpful, suggesting things to do and see in Salzburg, and humored our not-always-quiet kids at breakfast. Minor negatives: Despite the name, the hotel is not actually in the Old City -- it's maybe 10 minutes walk away on the right (new) bank. And the parking is an add'l EUR 11/night in a garage several blocks away. But all in all I would stay there again and don't hesitate to recommend it.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Wolf Dietrich over Valentines weekend 2003. We found Salzburg the most romantic city, covered in snow it was amazing. The hotel located ideally a few streets down from the river - a 10 minute walk from the town centre, a nice enough stroll of an evening. We were originally attracted to the hotel because it had recently been renovated and they had two specialised 'themed' Mozart rooms. We couldnt beilieve the room, it was covered in lights from floor to ceiling, had a state of the art projectiled TV screen, with stereo, and Video player. In addition, even the curtains and lighting were electronic and controlled by remote control. I would recommend staying at the hotel just for that bedroom! On the downside, the hotel 'restaurant' was very small and did not offer anything amazing, breakfast was very standard although it was a nice change not to have the usual english fry up - in fact all of the ingredients they used were organic if you like that kind of thing. I would recommend the Wolf -Dietrich.
THE place to stay in salzburg
We should like to heartily recommend the Alstadthotel Wolf-Dietrich in Salzburg. We were spending a few days on a city-break and really appreciated the warm welcome, helpfulness and reliability of all the staff with whom we came into contact.
The comfort and cleanliness of the bedroom and all public areas was second-to-none, and the substantial buffet continental breakfast on offer was excellent.
Finally, the location of the hotel meant very easy access to all areas of interest in the city.
We should love to stay there again.
Beautiful room, excellent service. Very friendly. Good location.
Parking was extra charge, not indicated in ad that said garage, but parking charge is customary most places. Good location.
Charming and friendly
We liked this charming and cozy hotel with easy access to shopping and restaurants. A 10 minute walk put us right in the center of town and was easily accesible by foot. The bathroom was good size and the breakfast had plenty of variety. The free internet access is scheduled during the day and there is only one computer to use for the guests. It wasn't too big of a problem as people were courteous with their usage. The hotel has some interesting rooms which shouldn't be missed. They are on noticble as you exit the elevator on each floor and are fun.
