A restaurant with vaulted ceilings, corners that aren't quite at a 90-degree angle, and dark wooden beams overhead: Step into history in Salzburg's oldest inn, dating back all the way to the 14th century. Centrally located in the trendy museum district of Mozart's city, it has been lovingly restored and expanded into an art hotel. It boasts a prime location in the heart of the historic centre, which was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, and sits only a short walk from Mozart’s birthplace. Today, the historic walls of the inn pop with modern design and contemporary art, making for a creative haven for the widely-travelled and the well-read. The hotel even has its own magazine, which you can peruse over a cup of coffee - or a glass of wine.
As a guest of Arthotel Blaue Gans, enjoy a complimentary visit to the Museum of Modern Art on Mönchsberg mountain with fantastic views over Salzburg. Then take a walk to the fortress and experience the city's history.
"The Blaue Gans is a delightful hotel with helpful staff and individually designed rooms with interesting art in abundance. It is supposedly the oldest hotel in town and in continuous operation as a hotel for over 500 years. You will be located on the main pedestrian street, the Getreidegasse, with many shops and restaurants in easy walking distance. You can visit all the sites like the Mozart home and birthplace, the Dom and the fortress within easy walking distance. The attached restaurant offers a great breakfast and is a good choice for dinner too."

"The hotel is peppered with original artworks, which will delight or dismay, depending on your particular tastes. I will say this – for my tastes, the hotel’s art collection exceeded that on display at the city’s Museum der Moderne."
