Hotel Goldgasse, an Intimate affair with Austria’s history
The Hotel Goldgasse Salzburg prides itself as a boutique hotel that seeks to offer its guests an intimate experience with the rich history that has seeped into the walls and tiles of the hotel. Yet what, exactly, gives the hotel its distinctive appeal?
Salzburg’s Aldstadt or Old Town is an icon of Baroque architecture and is considered one of the most well-preserved cities in the region – which is why it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site almost twenty years ago. This on top of Mozart is one of the city’s most recognizable sons, with his influence living on in virtually every aspect of the city.
This connection with the past is one aspect of the Hotel Goldgasse that it strives to live up to. Historic stucco, frescoes reminiscent of the past, antique stone floors – the décor of its sixteen rooms reflects its commitment to honour the rich history of Salzburg while incorporating modern comforts into the whole experience. Even the location of Hotel Goldgasse contains a deep history, with the original building serving as a coppersmiths’ shop as far back as 1573.
