Good reasons for Salzburg

Salzburg is a safe and beautiful city. Although it is not large, Salzburg offers excellent infrastructure. There are lots of good reasons that make it easy to choose Salzburg.

Good reason no.1: Safety

Salzburg is a small city at home in the world. Austria is a neutral, sovereign state at the heart of the European Union. Low crime rates combined with extreme political stability, both domestically and in foreign affairs, make Austria a very safe place to be. Strikes are also very rare in Austria.

Salzburg Congress belongs to Tourismus Salzburg GmbH (TSG) which is owned 100% by the municipal authorities of Salzburg. The business has existed for many years and the close relationship with the managers of tourist infrastructure, and our status as Salzburg’s ‘official congress centre’ enable us to cooperate with municipal bodies on a wide variety of projects. The strict legal directives to which Salzburg Congress is subjected in Salzburg Province ensure compliance with very tight safety norms. Planning certainty is guaranteed.

Good reason no.2: Salzburg’s world-wide fame

The city of Salzburg is a world-famous brand in terms of tourism. The city owes its fame, to a significant degree, to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the Salzburg Festival, its old baroque-style town, ‘The Sound of Music’ and several other people of world repute.

The city remains a magnet for nostalgic lovers of classical music, for romantics and for connoisseurs. The city environment offers a fascinating mix of historical architecture punctuated by examples of modernity, and the venue also benefits aesthetically from this contrast.

Austria is well known for its standards of service provision.

Good reason no.3: Central location

Salzburg Congress is situated in the centre of the town, just a few minutes’ walk from the historical quarter.

Guests at Salzburg Congress meet in the heart of the city of Salzburg. The large full-surface window facades provide a clear view of Schloss Mirabell palace and the adjacent garden, of Mönchsberg Hill – home of the Museum der Moderne, and across to the roofs of the old town – which has now been a UNESCO world heritage site for the last 20 years. The River Salzach is just five minutes’ walk away, and another five minutes take guests into the Getreidegasse – to Mozart’s birthplace, the cathedral square and the Residenz palace. There are lots of great places to shop and stroll here, and several marvellous old coffee shops.

Geographically, the city of Salzburg is right at the centre of Austria. It is close to the German border and boasts highly-developed, well-integrated traffic and transport links.

Good reason no.4: A large range of hotels

There is a large and comprehensive range of hotels in all categories in Salzburg and the surrounding villages.

As home of the Salzburg Festival, the city can provide a considerable selection of 3, 4 and 5-star hotels, including international hotels such as the Sheraton, Ramada, NH Hotels, Mercure and Best Western. There are also several boutique, old town and design hotels, as well as privately-owned hotel accommodation – all of which provide charming accommodation alternatives.

There are around 1,200 hotel rooms in the immediate vicinity of the Salzburg Congress building, all of which are within walking distance.
