The Andräviertel is definitely one of our favourite neighbourhoods in Salzburg. Due to its manifoldness, one can easily spend a leisurely afternoon strolling through the streets in the style of the Wilhelminian period. It’s with good reason that the Andräviertel is also known as the Paris of Salzburg. The district offers both famous monuments and attractions off the beaten track.
In recent years, Salzburg’s most famous shopping street, Getreidegasse, has found a worthy competitor in Linzergasse. Here, small boutiques line up with hip cafés and ice cream parlours. A bit hidden you can find the St. Sebastian’s cemetery, where famous sons and daughters of the city have their final resting place. A few steps further there is the ascent to the Kapuzinerberg. Climbing the stairs is well worth it because from the top you have a wonderful view of the old town.
At the end of Linzergasse turn right and in a few minutes walk you will reach Markatplatz, which in spring is lined with beautifully blooming magnolias and where you can also marvel at the Dreifaltigkeitskirche (Trinity Church). From here you can already spot the entrance to the Mirabellgarten next to the Salzburg Landestheater (State Theater). Highlights in the baroque garden include the Heckentheater ( small theatre in a labyrinth) and the Zwergelgarten (Dwarf Garden).
Strolling along Salzburg’s boulevard
Salzburg’s only boulevard starts at the foot of the Rosenhügel. With its countless cafés and bars, Franz-Josephs-Strasse is the perfect place to replenish your energy reserves with coffee and cake. On sunny days, the people of Salzburg love to let the sun shine on their faces here. We especially like to stop at Café Fingerlos or Café Wernbacher, these two coffee shops enjoy almost cult status.
Salzburg’s weekly market and speciality store
“Schranne” is Salzburg’s most famous farmers’ market. Every Thursday you can taste your way through regional delicacies there. On the other days of the week, we can recommend a visit to Da Paola at Kleiner Grünmarkt – also located in the Andräviertel. The Italian speciality store offers everything your antipasti heart desires and much more. How about a picnic? You can get the bread for it at the bakery Bäcker Unterbäck next door. Our complete guide to Salzburg’s most famous markets can be found here.
Shopping in Wolf-Dietrich-Straße
Away from the hustle and bustle of Linzergasse, you will find very special spots to browse in Wolf-Dietrich-Strasse. The small stores and cafés located here are run with a passion for detail and a lot of heart and soul. A favourite of ours is Zerum. There you will find sustainably and fairly produced clothing and accessories. In the spacious store with friendly service, you immediately feel in good hands. Here, fair doesn’t mean eco-look, but space for real gems. It’s worth a visit!
And in the evening? The best way to end the day is with a cocktail or Spritz at Restaurant Mühlbacher located in Mozart. Did you know that all guests of Heym Collections enjoy an aperitivo on the house? We are looking forward to seeing you!
