... city of Salzburg is like eating a decadent strudel with light vanilla custard ... It's such a classic ! Strewn with fountains, the colours of the city are pastels, light pinks and yellows. While the backdrop is rolling mountains and castle walls. Salzburg is definitely a dessert !!!! The old town is made of tight little baroque style streets and you can totally understand why Mozart became the musician he was considering the inspirational city he was born ...
... reached the base of it; no wonder it was never able to have been taken over by force! Also, once on top, it feels like you're in another small village. Apparently when the city would be attacked, the people would take refuge in the fort and live life normally, complete with running water. We were also able to take a tour explaining the history of the fort as well as seeing some incredible views of the city below ...
... it has amazing views of the alps. Before the tour. we went to a cemetery in the city which has mozart's sister buried there. They also have 'catacombs' in the cliff. They are incorrectly called catacombs because no one was buried inside. It was a little eerie inside.bit was pretty much a few caves in the rock that were used as churches. After the tour finished we bought some strawberries from a market stall and weaves our way through arcades to the ...
... the countryside too, which we weren’t expecting.
On the way back to Salzburg I called Grandma because this is one of her favourite cities. It was lovely to talk to her, but after I hung up, Joanna pointed out that it would have been 11pm, not 11am. Whoops, sorry Grandma!
Joanna and I went back to the shoe shop and I bought my favourite pair from yesterday. We saw some live models in an underwear shop window! It was so off-putting, and I felt ...
... embedded into the ground. It reminded me of a cemetery. Why would you "plant" artificial flowers? What's wrong with real ones? Anyways on our way there, there was this poster of this guy picking his nose. I took a pic because it reminded me of Tumataiapo and the photo that Terekino took of him picking his nose. Except in this case, it''s an adult and he's getting paid for it. He's literally digging for gold. Lame, I know but amusing nevertheless. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Stein Salzburg
This Hotel is in a great location, possibly the best you could ask for in Salzburg!
My husband and I spent one night at this hotel on a driving trip through Austria. Overall this hotel is overpriced and short on amenities for Austria. There is no area to park your car when checking in and we parked in a garage two blocks away. We were told when checking in that the hotel had an agreement with a garage (the same distance away as ours) that was 7 euros a night less. We decided to leave our car where it was--so not off to a great start. Our room was pretty small and had been recently refurbished. The bathroom was very nice, with marble flooring, nice fixtures, etc. The furnishings in the room were modern however the drapes and flooring were old and worn and had obviously not been included in the recent update. We toured the city and came back for a drink on the rooftop bar. The view is just lovely and we were able to enjoy it as the sun was setting. There was a nice selection of cocktails, wines and beer. Our waiter was the only sore point. I speak German fairly well and we were able to communicate our orders without problems. However, I sensed that he didn't want to wait on us and we were one of the tables he was least attentive to. I attribute this to either the fact that we are American or that we are late 30's and early 40's. Most of the clientele for this hotel are under 30.
Wir waren für ein paar Nächte im Hotel Stein und waren ziemlich beeindruckt.
We visited Hotel Stein for a couple of nights and were quite impressed by it. It's not your typical 'bath cap and soap baskets next to the sink' hotel and if that's what you're expecting you may be dissapointed.
We vistited the "Steinterrasse Bar" last Friday and I just need to confirm the below situation even I didn't stay IN the hotel! It looked empty from outside (maybe 2 rooms with lights), all visitors seem just to want to join the "Steinterrasse Bar" party. The 2 hotel lifts are - as the complete interior design - from the 50ies or even older (lift sometimes suppose to stuck between 1st and 2dn floor we were told). No security, everybody can walk everywhere everytime in/out the building. At the reception there was a young guy (maybe 20 or so?) who gave me business card of the "hotel". Homepage shows picture movie and a link email address. ...
Woiuldn't stay at the Stein
We arrived late evening: NO staff on duty - not in restaurant or in reception. Lobby in darkness; people wandering in off the street to go to the terrace bar: no checks and no security. It took an hour to contact anyone, and the receptionist - called in from home - was rude and surly.
The corridors were dark and not clean, and were crowded with non-guests - wandering freely. Our rooms had a smell of cabbage.
By now in was midnight: luckily the nearby Hotel Sacher had vacant rooms and we stayed there for one night before booking into the excellent Hotel Bristol for the rest of our stay in Salzburg.
The Kulthotel Stein reminded me of my younger days in staying in youth hostels.
Meal with a view at Stein Hotel
Visited the Stein Hotel for lunch on the top floor Terrase Restaurant in April 2004. Most fabulous place for lunch in Salzburg. 360 degree views of the Altstadt from bar and restaurant, with indoor and outdoor dining. In addition, the daily menu is a bargain. Readers looking for a nice hotel along the Danube in Salzburg should know that the hotel is being totally refurbished and currently only about six rooms are available. The rennovations will be complete some time in 2005 and rooms will be 150 to over 200 Euros.
Stein Hotel is GREAT
I was a music student in Salzburg for many years.Years later my wife & i went back for a Christmas in Salzburg, and stayed at the Stein. It is a weird old place dating back to the middle ages, the floors are all uneven, the elevator a 40's vintage model, and the desk clerk was a drunk, and the place was cold as hell, and the shower facilities were inconvenient.NEVERTHELESS!We had a great time. Out room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, they found a TV for us, and the view out over the Salzach and the Altstadt was stupendous. There were few other guests in the hotel, and the location is the best.It is a charming, quaint and unique place. I understand that in summer they serve meals on the roof. The views must be spectacular.
