During Hotel Sacher Salzburg’s recent renovation, owner Elisabeth Gürtler lovingly oversaw the design of each and every guestroom, combining historic art, antiques and silk-lined walls with state-of-the-art technology to offer the modern traveler a welcoming oasis. The cozy new Sacher Bar, with its private Salzach-Terrace and updated Wintergarden lounge, is a trendy local hot spot. Set in the heart of Mozart’s city, this landmark hotel is just across the River Salzach from Old Town. For a traditional Salzburg setting, dine at the Zirbelzimmer restaurant, or for a signature burger, stop in at the Salzachgrill.
