Imagine, old buildings left and right, mountains all around you, and a turquoise river in the middle… Welcome to Salzburg! Although it became just recently my home, I bloody love this city so much. It has just such a special charm to it, the mixture between nature and those old buildings is just magical. One the one hand you have everything you need in the city, on the other hand you can go hiking for hours within 10km. But one thing I love the most about Salzburg is the love of the people of Salzburg for their coffee. Every Saturday and Sunday you can go through the city and see the people enjoying their coffees with their loved ones. I am not used to that from home, but I love to see that. Something I am also not used to, from home are those old traditional Austrian coffeehouses. With high ceilings, big magazines and big comfy seats, homemade cakes and tea mugs with lovely patterns and details. Today I am going to present my favourite coffeeshops in Salzburg to you. Maybe one day I will see some of you enjoying your coffees there.
“THE CAFÉ FOR ARTISTS, POETS AND THINKERS IN THE FESTIVAL CITY OF SALZBURG”
The Café Bazar is a historic place with many stories to tell. In the heart of the City of Mozart, Salzburg, its unique charm attracts guest from Salzburg and the world over. Not only the view of the historic city centre of Salzburg from the patio of the cafe is a unique experience: the delicious breakfast served all day; the Austrian specialities; and the huge variety of sweet temptations and coffee specialities combine to make a visit to the Café Bazar a unique experience.
Experience Austrian Café Culture at its highest level in the City center of Salzburg – one of the most beautiful cities of the world.
This is one of those traditional Austrian “Kaffeehaus” as we call them in Austria. With the high ceilings, stucco, magazines and the smell of coffee. Directly located at the Salzach, besides the Hotel Sacher, it is the perfect location to relax after a walk or some shopping in the city.
“At the m32 restaurant at the Mönchsberg, guests can not only enjoy delicious cuisine, but also spectacular panoramic views of the magnificent baroque buildings of Salzburg’s old town. The restaurant is run by chef Sepp Schellhorn, winner of 2 toques by Gault Millau for his hotel and restaurant Seehof in Goldegg. During the day the restaurant caters for the needs of museum visitors and tourists, in the evenings the restaurant and bar offer first-class dining.”
If you ever visit Salzburg in Summer or Spring and the weather is gorgeous, you have to visit the “M32”. It is located on top of the Mönchsberg, next to the “Museum der Moderne” and the view over Salzburg is just incredible. I have to say the café is not the cheapest (Cappuccino 4,10 Euro), but as a special treat it is really nice. You can go up there by feet or just take the elevator, which costs up and down 3,60 Euro. After having coffee or even breakfast, you can walk from the Museum to the fortress (1,2km), which is also really nice. From time to time you will have an incredible look over the city of Salzburg.
When thinking of Ludwig, you will normally think of Burgers, because that´s what Ludwig is famous for, but in my opinion, it should be also famous for coffee, because it is absolutely amazing. Furthermore it is located next to Linzergasse, so that you can enjoy a marvellous cappuccino in front of the café after some exhausting shopping. Especially when the weather is nice, this is one location to be.
Let me know if you have any coffee recommendations for Salzburg. I would love to check them out!
