... were beautiful. It’s where Maria and the children out of The Sound of Music sing Do-Re-Mi. We were in a rush though because we had to get back to the staion to catch our train to Zurich, Switzerland in 25minutes. That was a mad rush. About 4 and half hours later, we arrived into Zurich. It’s not what we expected at all. We’re going to leave here early tomorrow because hopefully Chur will be nicer.

... years ago. I visited the beautiful St Peters Church graveyard that was featured in the Sound of Music and I found it to be a quite haven among the bustle of tourists. I wandered the narrow streets of the old town and only looked at Mozart's birthplace house where he was born on January 27, 1756. It is now a museum but as I had previously visited it I didn't bother paying to go inside. Salzburg hasn't changed much from what I remember as all the ...
... the heavier German food which is heavy-handed and more stodgy. I have noticed that a lot of Germans are over-weight but in this area particularly there are some fitness fanatics who cycle and hike and are amazingly fit without an ounce of fat. Oddly, today our hotel was closed and after one girl prepared breakfast for us and made the beds there was nobody here and we had to use our room key to get in and out of the front door - very strange. Apparently this happens every ...
... musician, had a reputation for being rather difficult and demanding, while his mother was loved and well regarded for her peacemaking abilities. She had seven babies between 1749 and 1757, Mozart being the youngest. Can you imagine! Mozart and his sister Anna were the only two to survive. Back in Mozart's time, that was fairly common. Mozart and his sister were both ...
... in the movie), the gazebo, Mirabell Gardens and across the beautiful scenery of Austria. The tour guide was great and told us so much more about the movie that we didnt know. And of course there was lots of singing on the bus - the best part!
Well, actually, the best part may have been when I bought my very first Austrian beer stein in Mondsee :)!!
After the tour we were back in the car and on our ...

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.
