Winter in the city of Mozart: ‘tis the season to be jolly
There’s hardly a city that presents itself more fairytale-like than snow-sprinkled Salzburg with its mountain-top fortress and all the stately buildings. The city’s landmark mountains covered in snow and, at the centre of it all, the narrow little alleys in their festive clothing – draped in Christmas lights.
During Advent season, the city along Salzach river brims with Christmas spirit. How about noshing on some roasted almonds after your stroll through the old town or an aromatic mulled wine at one of the Christmas markets? If that doesn’t get you in the mood for happy holidays ... Especially, if you can warm up at the wellness area afterwards and reminisce about the amazing day you had.
One thing’s for sure: Salzburg is well worth a visit, no matter the season! You can hardly wait for a varied city trip to the Mozart metropolis? The team at reception will be happy to advise you or prepare a customised offer for you.
