Self-catering holiday rentals in Salzburg for your home stay

A holiday in Salzburg offers the perfect balance between a city break and a getaway in the countryside. The Austrian city is located in the shadow of the Alps, which provide an ideal setting for hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter, but is also packed with historic attractions. In fact, part of the centre has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its range of stunning architecture, which dates from the middle Ages to the 19th Century. One of the landmarks within walking distance of the holiday apartments in central Salzburg is Mozart's Birthplace. The beautifully-preserved house where the composer was born in 1756 has been transformed into an exhibition about his life, complete with a display of the instruments he used when writing symphonies. You won't be able to miss the Hohensalzburg Fortress towering over the Old Town, although you will need to take a ride on a funicular railway to reach the vast medieval castle, which is now a fascinating museum that tells the story of the lavish lifestyles of the city's prince-archbishops. Salzburg has a number of palaces to visit, the best of which is Hellbrunn. It was designed by the renowned Italian architect Santini Solari for Prince-Archbishop Markus Sittikus von Hohenems in 1612 and features opulent apartments, a grand ballroom and beautiful gardens, complete with the famous Wasserspiele trick fountains. Another great example of Solari's work is the Baroque-style Salzburg Cathedral, where you can see the font where Mozart was baptised, a stunning dome and a magnificent organ. Exploring on foot will lead you to a host of other historic attractions, along with a selection of museums and galleries. The Museum of Modern Art has a world-class collection that features works by Max Ernst, George Condo and Helmut Newton, while the Museum of Natural History and Technology includes both a vast aquarium and interactive science exhibits designed for children. If you wish to enjoy the idyllic Austrian countryside, you may prefer to book a holiday cottage in Salzburg state. You can look forward to hiking and climbing in the mountains or boating on the lakes in the beautiful surroundings of the Salzkammergut area, if you travel between April and October. The region is also a fantastic choice of holiday destination for cyclists, as there are many quiet roads and off-road trails that lead to stunning scenery. Among the best of them is the Tauern Cycle Path, which includes the city of Salzburg, the banks of the River Salzach, the spectacular Krimml Waterfalls and the Liechtenstein Gorge on its route. Come the winter, the terrain is ideal for snow sports, with some of Austria's best ski resorts in the local area.

Best time to enjoy Salzburg

The summer school holidays are a great time for a family break in Salzburg, as the weather is pleasantly warm, making exploring the countryside and sightseeing in the city a real pleasure. Travel at this time and you will also have the opportunity to enjoy the Salzburg Festival, which runs from mid-July to early September each year. It is one of Europe's largest arts festivals and, with a huge variety of plays, operas and classical music performances on the programme, there is certain to be something to interest you. For a cultural short break in Salzburg, May is a good choice as there is a mini version of the festival each Whitsunday week. Austria is famed for its Christmas markets and there is no better place to experience them than Salzburg. There is a huge market in Cathedral Square from late November to December 24th, with traditional festive food, arts and crafts, and lots of ideas for unusual presents on sale. There is a second market at Mirabell Palace, as well as a celebration of seasonal music and food at Hellbrunn Palace. The Advent festivities are far from the only reason to take a winter holiday in Salzburg state. There is heavy snow in the mountains from mid-December to late March and, with more than 100 ski resorts within two hours of the city's airport, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the conditions. Book a holiday chalet in Zell am See and you can look forward to great skiing, with 80 km of piste to tackle, as well as stunning views over Lake Zell. Families may prefer Filzmoos, as there are many nursery slopes and facilities for children.
