Salzburg – the birthplace of Mozart is with a view of the Alps.
Salzburg is the fourth largest city in Austria. It is famous for its architecture, which drives from the old Baroque years of Europe, and its very well-preserved old centre. Its position, which is north of the Alps, gives it a remarkable character as a preferred winter holiday destination and a favourite location for history and nature lovers alike. Famous people born in Salzburg include the world-renown composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as well as the 2012 Guinness world-records holder Felix Baumgartner.

There are many opportunities and reasons to visit Salzburg. One of them is the city’s very own Centre, acknowledged as a World Heritage Site in 1996. Naturally, the Salzburg Cathedral, the Hohensalzbrug castle and the many abbeys in the region are also unmissable. On top of the architectural and historical sites, the city also provides its guests with opportunities to visit the world famous Salzburg Festival and the local Easter festival, both frequented by tens of thousands of people every year.
Found very near the city centre, the Meininger 3-star hotel is the perfect fit for everyone who is staying in the city of Salzburg. Be it on a budget or business, this hotel provides quality service and respect for their clients. If you’ve ever thought that the cliché “the customer is always right” was outdated, then you will be pleasantly surprised by the Meininger staff. While it’s not located in the city centre, although its name suggests so, the hotel is not further than a 15-minute walk from the old town. If you’re not into short walks, then you can always catch the various buses that will take you straight to the centre.
Prices in the Meininger City Center hotel range from 20 to 65 euro per night including a dormitory option (divided by gender) as well as superior double rooms for personal use. The hotel also shares the famous Austrian view of the Alps.
Here is what the guests have to say about it:
1. “The hotel far exceeded my standard. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great too.”
2. “A youth hostel with a hotel feel. Very clean, modern and unless you bumped into a large group of youths, you would think it was a regular hotel. Prices are low for what you get. Breakfast buffet is not worth the money, but is worth the convenience. The staff will answer any question and all speak fluent English. Easy to reach the sites by bus.”
