Explore the city on foot

Situated right in the centre of Salzburg, only around 800 metres from the station, the new Hyperion Hotel Salzburg will open in 2022. Housed in the listed Palais Faber, this sophisticated accommodation 5-star establishment in Salzburg is located directly opposite the Salzburg Conventional Centre, one of Austria's most cutting-edge event venues, and almost directly adjacent to Mirabell Palace, with its famous gardens. 

The historic centre on the other side of the Salzach river, which is a World Heritage Site, can be reached on foot in five to ten minutes. The journey from the airport to the Hyperion Hotel Salzburg takes around 20 minutes by taxi or half an hour by bus. The thermal baths of Bad Reichenhall and Bad Vigaun, offering a range of wellness options in the Salz region, are around 20km away.

Mirabell Palace

Mirabell Palace sits just a few steps away from the hotel, on the other side of the street. The entire baroque complex, which features outbuildings and gardens, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The marble-lined state hall is still used today as a venue for concerts and weddings. The magnificent Georg Raphael Donner Staircase, extending from the ground floor to the second floor, and the palace chapel, featuring a ceiling painted by Bartolomeo Altomonte, are also worth seeing.

The baroque Mirabelle Garden, which belongs to the castle, is particularly renowned and includes the large parterre, the Heckentheater - which is still in use today, the water bastion, and the rose garden. The orangery and the palm house also date back to the 18th century.

Salzburg Cathedral, with its mighty dome and two towers, is a monumental building from the early baroque period. The magnificent marble main façade is certainly worth seeing, as is the bronze baptismal font dating back to 1311, which was used to baptise Mozart. The remains of the two previous buildings can still be seen in the crypt. The cathedral square, which includes St. Mary's Column, is a quintessential part of the city, and the annual venue for the "Jedermann" at the Salzburg Festival and the pre-Christmas Christkindlmarkt. 

The so-called DomQuartier (which is included in a single entry ticket) encompasses the entire former centre of the Prince-bishop's power: the Cathedral and the Cathedral Museum, the Old Residence with the Residence Gallery, and St. Peter's Monastery with its museum and other exhibitions. Visitors with an interest in culture can get to the DomQuartier from the Hyperion Hotel Salzburg in fifteen minutes on foot and should factor in a little time to explore the cathedral and its "quarters"!

Original records in Mozart's birthplace

One of the most beautiful streets in the old town is called Getreidegasse and features characteristic, arcaded passageways where visitors can expect to find pubs, traditional businesses, shops, and galleries. Alongside fashion, traditional costumes, and jewellery, antiques and souvenirs are also on offer. Ornate house portals, playful guild signs, and windows that become smaller from the first floor are typical of these buildings. A unique attraction is House no. 9 - Mozart's birthplace

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born here in 1756 and spent his childhood and youth in the house in Getreidegasse. The museum includes the living quarters on the 3rd floor, a reconstructed 18th century bourgeois flat, musical instruments, and numerous original documents. From the Hyperion Hotel Salzburg, it can be reached in about ten minutes on foot.

The Hohensalzburg Fortress towers majestically above the old town on the Festungsberg hill. Its oldest sections date back to the 11th century. The 16th century saw the creation of the magnificent princely rooms and the Reißzug, the oldest surviving funicular railway in the world. With an outer ring reinforced by artillery bastions, the castle has a total area of over 14,000 square metres, making it one of the largest castles in Europe. 

After admiring its impressive exterior, visitors can also visit the salt warehouse, the torture chamber, and the battlements as well as the prince's chambers, the fortress museum, the Rainer Regiment Museum and the puppet museum. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from the Hyperion Hotel Salzburg to the Festungsberg hill. For the ascent, it is worth taking advantage of the fortress railway.

Abbey on top of the Fortress Hill

As early as 711/712, the Benedictine Abbey of Nonnberg was founded by Saint Rupert on a terrace of the Festungsberg hill. The oldest Christian convent in the world, its uninterrupted use continues to this day. Together with the late Gothic abbey church, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It holds an important collection of medieval manuscripts, Gothic paintings, and figures. 

In addition to a library and an archive, the nuns living in the monastery also run a ceramics workshop, the Erentrudishof organic farm, and a guest house. It takes about 25 minutes to get here from the Hyperion Hotel Salzburg on foot or fifteen minutes by car.
