Join me on a walking-excursion through Salzburg -  approx.. 4 km from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. - no stress! MORNING After breakfast at the BerglandHotel we walk through Linzergasse - half way down this lane then up the ascending narrow road to the monastery on Kapuzinerberg. Next to the monastery enjoy the panoramic view from the Hettwer-Bastei. This sight upon the roofs and churches gives you an ideal perspective of the city’s dimension and the perfect photo towards the churches and the fortress. A short descent down the “Imbergstiege” passing one of the hidden jewels of town – the “St. Johann am Imberg” church – you reach Steingasse with its medieval atmosphere. In former times everybody arriving from the south had to pass through this alley. Nowadays in the evenings locals meet there at trendy small bars and restaurants. Along the Steingasse at first opportunity turn right down to the river across the bridge (Mozartsteg) to the left bank. On Mozartplatz turn left onto Sebastian- Stief-Gasse and reach Papagenoplatz. Most houses at this square provide small treasures to be discovered. A flower store with creative compositions, several smaller establishments, artists in their workshops, furniture and handcraft from India with a background of strange smells and sounds. Opposite enjoy a small “TRAMEZZINI” (snack) at FASTIES to recharge your energy-level. Continuing your walk - on your left a shop with African art - finally the very short Chiemseegasse with its many bars and restaurants. At the end turn right onto Kaigasse and Mozartplatz. The Mozart-monument in its center was inaugurated in 1842 a few months after the death of Mozart's widow Constanze in the presence of their two sons.   There is the Tourist Information Office at this square (Nr.5) which provides tickets for all main events in town, opposite the “Salzburg Museum” is worth visiting its exquisite exhibitions .   But our main focus is the neighboring square “RESIDENZPLATZ” and the “Salzburg Cathedral / Dom”. Don’t miss entering the Dom (free entrance). Across the “Residenzplatz” with the baroque fountain, we pass through the bows to reach the main portal of the Dom. Built between 1614 and 1628 (badly damaged during WWar II), completely restored in 1959. This impressive building, the huge interior, accommodates 10.000 people. It is one of the first early baroque churches north of the Alps created by the Italian Architect Santino Solari. Among the treasures are the baptismal font (from 1311), where also W.A. Mozart was baptized and a wonderful organ. In the crypt you see the foundations of the medieval cathedral and the remains of the Roman Church. The Sunday masses are often accompanied by Mozart’s spiritual compositions. Salzburg’s Genius loci is considered by many to be the world’s greatest composer and there is a year-round program of musical events in  town. He played a variety of instruments by sight and ear and started composing at an early age of 4 ½ yrs. - his comprehensive church-music work often was heard the first time at the Dom (here place and his music offer a perfect merge of authenticity). With the entrance opposite the Dom don’t miss the “DOMQUARTIER”. The triumphant architectural landmark was built 1595-1619. See the impressive baroque interiors on an audio-guided tour that leads through rooms with stucco, marble and amazing painted ceilings. This long corridor has served as an archbishop´s gallery and was a special feature of these times. Because of its north-facing windows, the images obtained uniform light without direct irradiation. Leave the DOMQUARTIER in direction to the DOMPLATZ at the right side and walk to the adjoining Kapitelplatz. At the corner of Kapitelplatz take your time visiting the bakery of St.Peter – bread made by the monks of St.Peter is worth tasting! The old mill operated by the water from the Almkanal still works since hundreds of years. Further on the small lane gets you to the entrance of the “Festungsbahn”/railway up to the fortress. But you turn right to enter the cemetery with its flower-bedecked graves of St. Peter. It is one of the oldest cemeteries worldwide. Take time to see the monument of Mozarts’s beloved sister “Nannerl”, the grave of Composer Michael Haydn or the grave of “Dom-Architect” Santino Solari before leaving to visit the Stiftskirche St. Peter (Church). Built between 1131 and 1147 and later altered to its present rococo appearance. Past ancient grave inscriptions, the entrance to the “catacombs” is located in the Mönchsbergwand. Steep steps in the rock, few but special views of the city, two magnificent chapels beaten in the rock are impressive testimonies of early Christianity. After leaving the cemetery and the church be aware that the monastery of St.Peter founded around 700 A.D. has an uninterrupted existence and belongs to the oldest Monk’s Associations.   A short distance from St.Peter’s you will reach Sigmund-Haffner- Gasse with its Franziskaner Kirche (Franciscan Church). A peaceful and lovely building dedicated to the Virgin that was Salzburg’s parish church until 1635. With its Romanesque details its dimness set off by the airy Gothic choir built in the 15 th  century it is one of my favourite churches in town.   Along the Sigmund Haffner Gasse you find a number of galleries and a well- stocked bookstore “HÖLLRIEGL”. Next to the bookstore at the left pass the Ritzerbogen to reach “Universitätsplatz” with its magnificent Collegiate Church. Mozart´s birthplace can be seen as well from this side. He was born in a modest middle-class apartement on Jan. 27, 1756. Today it is run as a simple museum containing family portraits as well as furniture of the period presenting the live of those days. The Collegiate Church (worth entering!) opposite is one of the baroque masterpieces north of the Alps and built by Bernhard Fischer-von- Erlach, the most famous baroque architect of the time. As it was in former times, the square still is the daily “supplier” for fresh fruit and vegetables every morning (exp. Sundays). Enjoy the variety of fresh fruit, various sausages, cheese or a sandwich, the choice is suitable for all tastes. At the left side of the church walk into “Wiener-Philharmoniker-Gasse”. After a few minutes you reach Max-Reinhardt-Platz with the Festival Halls and the Universitätsaula. The “Max-Reinhardt-Platz” houses another jewel (a contemporary art work) of the outstanding German artist Anselm Kiefer “A.E.I.O.U”. The unpretentious grey cottage in which Kiefer´s work is located, is unfortunately completely unsuitable for this square but the work of Anselm Kiefer inside is absolutely worth seeing. I guess you might be hungry by now. Have late lunch in one of the cafes and taverns close by. Salzburg is an extremely good place with cosmopolitan cuisine and restaurants, inns, taverns and cafes. At Max-Reinhard-Platz/corner Wr. Philharmoniker-Gasse the tavern “Triangel” offers a good range of Austrian/Italien specialities. There are many more places to enjoy – ask the receptionist at the BerglandHotel and find out the places we like most and others we do not recommend. The printed “Home-Restaurant-Guide” awaits you at the front-desk of the BerglandHotel. Many restaurants have summertime beer-gardens. AFTERNOON Now it is time for a few minute’s walk past the „Pferdeschwemme" (literally “horse-pool”). This is a frescoed fountain-pool where horses were led down sloping ramps in order to be washed. In the direction of “Gstättengasse” an elevator build into the mountain leads up to the Museum of Modern Art. The large terrace at the museum up the mountain offers a bright view to the entire historic old town. While heading home leave time to enjoy the stores along Getreidegasse and the alleys leading off it. There is a good cluster of stores as well on the left bank of the river (Linzergasse) – which I find even more appealing. From there the BerglandHotel is a 20 minute’s walk – you may choose your tour either along the “Griesgasse” and find the old-venerable STERNBRÄU, an old tavern with different decorated rooms from modern lounges to typical Austrian interiors. Heading home enjoy the small bridge with the many lockers hanging on its handrows left and right. At the end of the bridge you already see the next square - Makartplatz – with the famous Mirabell Gardens on the left. Cultivated by the city gardeners this garden is a refuge for the citizens who enjoy the first spring warmth or the late autumn on the benches along the castle’s walls. This wall is at the same time also the “outer skin” of the world-renowned Mozarteum Music University with its associated event rooms. On the Makartplatz and the leading Schwarzstrasse, there are several venues such as the Landestheater (Provincial Theatre), whose building is connected directly to the “Kammerspiele” Theatre, the Marionette Theatre and the International Foundation Mozarteum with its two concert halls. At “Makartplatz” is the location where the Mozart-family lived in the later years. On the upper side of the square see the Dreifaltigkeitskirche (Trinity Church) and walk to the right. The alley leads again into Linzergasse (the beginning of your tour in the morning). In the middle of Linzergasse at its left you should not miss a short glance of “St. Sebastian Friedhof” (Cemetery). Mozarts father Leopold and Mozarts widow Constanze found their resting place here. The mausoleum of Salzburg´s famous Archbishop Wolf Dietrich can be seen, or the tomb of the physician, alchemist and philosopher Theophrastus Bombastus von Hoheim (called Paracelsus). He died in Salzburg in 1541 and his knowledge and work still ranks among the foundations of medical knowledge nowadays. In less than 10 walking minutes wander back the atmospheric street to the BerglandHotel for a little rest. EVENING Culinary and cultural choices are subject to constant change. Our recommendations will be updated  and dependant on our guests preferences and appealing price-quality ratio. Get a small printed information on restaurants and cultural events at our reception with emphasis on the area around the hotel. Wishing you a remarkable Salzburg-day - Salzburg offers constantly something new, exciting and worth being discovered.
