Hotel Goldener Hirsch

Hotel Goldener Hirsch is an iconic and much-loved Luxury Collection Hotel in Salzburg with a history dating back to 1407. In the old part of Salzburg, Mozart's birthplace, the hotel attracts musicians and global visitors into the 21st century.


The hotel is in the heart of Altstadt, the historic old city. This city was awarded the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. Moreover, the front entrance to the resort property is on Getreidegasse. This is just a few steps away from the house where Mozart was born and brought up, preserved as a museum. Today, the street is a pedestrian zone and a busy shopping and tourist area.

Getreidegasse Sights

Boutiques have gifts and souvenirs, handmade traditional costumes (Trachten), leather goods, and perfumes. The high narrow buildings still display decorative wrought-iron guild signs and continue down quaint alleyways with cafés, restaurants, and delightful courtyards.

Many other notable sights are within moments of the hotel. These include Salzburg Cathedral, several beautiful churches, and the Mirabell Gardens. Moreover, the Festival Hall is just across from the hotel, and the Hohensalzburg Fortress is a 10-minute walk.

The area is also famous for hosting summer festivals and the film locations of 'The Sound of Music. Additionally, the Salzburg International Airport (SZG) serves the city. It connects to the hotel via shuttle, taxi, bus, or pre-ordered limousine service.

Style and Hospitality

This is a boutique hotel with the warm and welcoming ambiance of an authentic Austrian hunting chalet. Rather neatly, the name Hirsch translates as 'deer.' Additionally, the family motifs are found throughout the hotel, along with hunting trophies and prints.

The décor also employs a lot of carved wood and rich, colorful fabrics. This goes along with plush seating, arches, molded ceilings, and subtle lighting to enhance the theme. Besides, the staff, in traditional dress, provide the very best in Austrian hospitality.


Hotel Goldener Hirsch has been welcoming visitors for centuries. Still, it has been thoroughly and tastefully updated to provide many modern amenities. Full business services, internet, and Wi-Fi are available. The hotel also has 2 famous gourmet restaurants and a popular bar. Plus, there is in-room dining, modern bathrooms, and concierge services.

Moreover, accessibility features are sensitively introduced in all areas of the hotel. Children are also received very warmly, and pets are welcomed as family members.


There are 70 guest rooms spread over 3 historic 15th-century buildings. Moreover, each has a simple bright traditional Austrian country style. The comfortable plush seating, Ottoman couches, and bedspreads in strawberry pink/white or summer blue/white striped fabrics are also adorable.

Additionally, Fleckerlteppich woven rugs scatter across floors. There are also many beautifully carved and decorated wooden handmade pieces of furniture. Besides, hand-painted antique bed frames were salvaged from old farms after World War 2.

Modern amenities carefully blend into this rustic-chic style and feature cable/satellite/internet TV. There are also CD players, mini-bars, air conditioning, and coffee/tea-making equipment.

Furthermore, big comfortable beds come in single/double/king or twin options. These go along with downy pillows and covers. Additionally, luxury bathrooms have separate showers and tubs. Bathrooms also have marble-topped double vanities, terry robes, slippers, and a range of bath toiletries. Accessible rooms are also available.


These add more living space and are particularly well-appointed. Besides, some have their own entrance hall and kitchen area. More of the hand-painted fabrics are in pink, cornflower, and red stripes. Also, bright woven traditional rugs feature here.

Other benefits are charming street or courtyards views and 24-hour room service. There are also vanity tables, writing desks, and soundproofing. Furthermore, fine paintings adorn the walls. Bathrooms are particularly lavish with woods, red marble, and porcelain.

Restaurant Goldener Hirsch

This area has a handsome setting with subtle lighting and vaulted ceilings. Additionally, fine paintings of hunting scenes form the backdrop for the hotel's internationally acclaimed fine dining restaurant. Under the direction of talented chef Daniel Mild, the award-winning restaurant serves inspired variations of traditional Austrian cuisine and international classics.

Once a farrier's, the restaurant today is one of the most famous in Austria. It attracts United States Embassy officials, international celebrities, diplomats, and socialites. Musicians too, come here and dine.

While dining, you can look out at Herbert von Karajan Square. This place is named after the famous conductor who dined at Goldener Hirsch. Moreover, staff uniforms, seating, and tableware are Austrian green and white, embellished with the family 'deer' motif. A fine wine cellar complements the menus. Besides, signature cocktails are available at the bar.

Restaurant Herzl

This is a famous local meeting place in the city. Particularly popular at festival time, it becomes a hub for musicians and actors following in the footsteps of the famous faces in photos lining the walls.

This is a lovely diner. It has a lot of rose pink and white balanced by dark wood. Moreover, staff dress in traditional costumes. Plus, menus emphasize healthy contemporary interpretations of regional fare.

Fresh daily local seasonal produce underpins Herzl cuisine. A garden is also there for al fresco dining in fine weather.

Fitness and Exercise

Unlike some 5-star hotels, the Hotel Goldener Hirsch does not have a spa or fitness center. However, you can easily find these facilities in health-conscious Salzburg. The hotel also concentrates on outdoor pursuits like hiking and biking. Furthermore, the concierge services can advise on trails and any equipment required.

Meetings and Events

The Hotel Goldener Hirsch has excellent facilities for business or private events as well as weddings and celebrations. The Library and several salons preserve the character of the old hotel. However, they conceal all modern technologies like climate control to make every meeting successful.

Additionally, the Pink Salon is the daily venue for breakfasts. However, guests can easily adapt it for private meetings and dining or even dancing or cocktail parties. Top-notch planning, catering, and service are also standard for all events and occasions.
