Our Salzburg Gay Travel Guide, Austria

Salzburg Gay Travel Guide Austria: The month of May was the time for us to travel to Salzburg, the fourth biggest city of AustriaThe city of Salzburg is located just by the German border and is parted by the river Salzach into a north-eastern and south-western part of town. The Austrian city with its Salzburg fortress and it’s well preserved Baroque city center that was listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 was for us a simply beautiful especially because of its surrounding mountain ranges of the Alpes and the traditionally strong connection to nature.  The majority of you will know Salzburg from the story of the American musical drama film “The Sound of Music” about the Trapp Family that was filmed in Salzburg in 1965 starring Julie Andrews. And of course, we have to mention the music genius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as Salzburg was his birthplace in 1756 and place for his creative work for the first part of his life.

We traveled to Salzburg by flying directly to Munich with KLM and taking a train from there to Salzburg. Already the train ride was a stunning experience through picturesque Bavarian villages, wide meadows with cows and the raising hight of the Alpine mountains. The central station of Salzburg is located right in the center. From here we just walked about 10 minutes to reach our accommodation, the 4-star Imlauer Hotel Pitter Salzburg. The first thing to do was a gay guided tour of the most important parts of the city Salzburg and familiarizing with the customs of the local LGBT community with our tour guide Roman. The next days can be described as a gay-friendly mix of nature and culture with hiking on the Kapuzinerberg to the Franziskischlössel, feasting delicious local cuisine and beer, multiple churches, museums, and concerts as well as our one-day biking adventure to Hellbrunn. We are happy and proud to tell you how gay-friendly and open-minded we experienced Salzburg. Especially the positive feedback from members of the LGBT community can be seen as a positive sign for a growing acceptance within the Austrian society.
