HYPERION Hotel Salzburg

Old town of Salzburg at sunrise

Ideally located in the historic center

The HYPERION Hotel Salzburg opened in 2022 in the heart of Salzburg city center, just 800 meters from the train station. Housed in the listed Palais Faber, your sophisticated 5-star accommodation in Salzburg is located directly opposite the Kongresshaus Salzburg, one of Austria's most modern event venues, and almost directly next to Mirabell Palace with its famous gardens.

The historic center on the other side of the Salzach, a World Heritage Site, is just a five to ten minute walk away. From the airport, it takes around 20 minutes by cab or half an hour by bus to the HYPERION Hotel Salzburg. The thermal spas of Bad Reichenhall or Bad Vigaun, with all the wellness facilities the salt region has to offer, are around 20 kilometers away.

All sights can be explored on foot

Just a few steps away from the HYPERION Hotel Salzburg, on the other side of the street, is Mirabell Palace. The entire baroque complex with its outbuildings and gardens is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The marble-lined ceremonial hall still serves as a concert and wedding hall today. Also worth seeing are the magnificent Georg Raphael Donner staircase from the first floor to the second floor and the palace chapel with a ceiling painting by Bartolomeo Altomonte.

The baroque Mirabelle plum garden belonging to the palace is particularly famous, including the large parterre, the hedge theater, which is still performed today, the water bastion and the rose garden. The orangery and the palm house also date back to the 18th century.

Salzburg's place of worship

Salzburg Cathedral with its mighty dome and two towers is a monumental building from the early Baroque period. The magnificent main façade made of marble is just as worth seeing as the bronze baptismal font from 1311, in which Mozart was baptized. The remains of the two previous buildings can still be seen in the crypt. The cathedral square with the Marian column is part of the overall picture and is the annual venue for the "Jedermann" play at the Salzburg Festival and the pre-Christmas Christmas market.

The entire former center of prince-archbishops' power belongs to the so-called DomQuartier - and is included under one entrance ticket: the cathedral and the Cathedral Museum, the Old Residence with the Residence Gallery, St. Peter's Monastery with its museum and other exhibitions. Those interested in culture can walk here from the HYPERION Hotel Salzburg in a quarter of an hour and should plan a little time for the cathedral and its "quarters"!

Small alley with shops


One of the most beautiful streets in the old town is the Getreidegasse with its characteristic arcaded through-houses, where you will find inns, traditional businesses, stores and galleries. In addition to fashion, traditional costumes and jewelry, antiques and souvenirs are also on sale.

Decorated house portals, playful guild signs and windows that get smaller from the second floor upwards are typical of the buildings.

Hohensalzburg Fortress

Hohensalzburg Fortress sits majestically on the fortress hill above the old town. Its oldest parts date back to the 11th century. In the 16th century, the magnificent royal rooms and the Reißzug, the oldest preserved funicular railroad in the world, were built. With the outer ring fortified by artillery bastions, the castle has a total built-up area of over 14,000 square meters, making it one of the largest castles in Europe.

In addition to the impressive outer complex, you can also visit the salt magazine, the torture chamber or the battlements as well as the royal rooms, the Fortress Museum, the Rainer Regiment Museum and the Marionette Museum. It is around 20 minutes on foot from the HYPERION Hotel Salzburg to the Festungsberg. You can easily use the fortress train to get up.

UNESCO World Heritage Site

Nonnberg Benedictine Abbey

The Benedictine abbey of Nonnberg was founded by St. Rupert on a terrace of the fortress hill back in 711/712. The oldest Christian women's monastery in the world with an uninterrupted tradition to this day is a UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the late Gothic collegiate church. It has an important collection of medieval manuscripts, Gothic paintings and figures.

In addition to the library and archive, the nuns living in the monastery also run a ceramics workshop, the Erentrudishof farm with organic farming and a guest house. From the HYPERION Hotel Salzburg, it takes around 25 minutes on foot or a quarter of an hour by car.
