The birthplace of Mozart & home of Red Bull - Salzburg is a gem in the Alps.

Snowflake

A city of contrasts, Salzburg combines its ancient past with contemporary architecture. Its Mozart museums contrast with the Red Bull exhibition and dining experience to the south of the city, whilst its genteel pedestrian zones are a far cry from the adventure sports on the water and mountains at the fringes of the city.

With a river sweeping through the heart of the city, Salzburg has riverside walkways beneath its historic, hill-top fortifications. The Old Town of Salzburg is gushing with history and cultural pomp and the city extends outward through affluent suburbs towards the mountainous Alps - Salzburg scenery is jaw-dropping.

And for group and gala dinners the Stiegel Brewery offers fantastic dining experiences for large groups with a traditional fayre of kraut, potatoes and meat dishes, seasonal beers and live music / dancing. The beer halls create a wonderful and truly authentic Austrian atmosphere. The Augustiner Braustuebl is an alternative beer hall experience with hearty food and domed room atmosphere. Both beer halls are great venues for group and team events.

Austrian gastronomy is so much more than sauerkraut, dumplings and pork and for corporate meeting and incentive event groups there are some excellent modern culinary experiences to enjoy. Ikarus at the Red Bull exhibition Hangar 7 hosts group and corporate events under its canopy where they are served contemporary and fusion cuisine, crafted by a rotating team of award-winning chefs. More traditional, high-end restaurants in Salzburg include the Restaurant Esszimmer and the Restaurant Brunnauer.
