Shopping in Salzburg

Shopping in Salzburg

If you read my previous blog post, you already know that I didn’t go to Salzburg for shopping. But I ended up doing it… I guess you’ve read that we had a full day schedule during the press trip, but we also had a few hours free to do whatever we wanted. That was after lunch time at Steinterrasse. In my free time, I chose to go for shopping alone in Getreidegasse and around this area. Three were the shops that caught my attention and I’d like to explain why in this blog post. 

Shopping in Salzburg

Damn Plastic – Münzgasse 2

After paying a visit at this store, you will definitely feel inspired to make little differences and more sustainable choices in your life. This store is a good start to a more sustainable plastic free life. I am glad that a store like this exists.

Salzburg schenkt anders –  Waagplatz 6

I am someone who travels a lot and stopped buying souvenirs from every city many years ago. Buying souvenirs is impossible for me. I travel too much and I don’t like the idea of jamming my little apartment with useless things from all over the world. 

Salzburg schenkt anders is one more store in the heart of Salzburg that sells sustainable and regional, yet tasteful products that you can buy as a souvenir. I loved their T-shirts. From here, I could imagine myself buying a souvenir as a memento of my time in Salzburg. 

Golden Soul – Kaigasse 22

Your soul is golden. That is the motto of this store…What’s not to love in this concept store? I could buy everything here. You have to pay a visit… and take some photos in it, because the store is very instagrammable! 

Mia shoes – Getreidegasse 2

I saw a lovely pair of fuchsia summer sandals in the vitrine, but unfortunately they didn’t have my size. I ended up buying a pink pair of Birkenstock sandals for the beach.

Visit Salzburg

Visit Salzburg

I’ve been to Salzburg several times in the past, but this time, this trip certainly felt more special. The invitation to spend four days in this beautiful city came from Salzburg Tourismus, the Official Tourism board. Under the motto “Salzburg. Neu entdeckt” I got invited to discover the city again, to see it with fresh new eyes, from a new perspective.

The promising program that the Tourism board sent me over via email and all the unwanted isolation I’ve been through the last few months due to Covid-19, were enough reasons for me to just pack my luggage, jump in that train from Vienna and set off on this adventure.

In this blog post, I’d like to share with you a few activities that were part of our program with the hope that they will help you to organize your trip to Salzburg.

Activities / what to do 

Visit Grünmarkt, the vibrant open-air market that is set in a large plaza. Walk around and see the local venders. There are plenty of choices for local meat, cheese, flowers, and baked goods.

Visit the the Benedictine Nonnberg Convent and listen to the Gregorian chant. Here the nuns sing Gregorian Chorals every morning in the sanctuary.

Where to stay / Hotels in Salzburg 

I stayed two times at Schloss Leopoldkron and one time at the Sacher hotel. Both hotels are top notch. However, keep in mind that they are located in different parts of the city. Sacher hotel is located right in the heart of the city, while Schloss Leopoldskron is a little bit further, surrounded by 17 acres of manicured grounds and nestled by a small, idyllic lake. I love them both, so it’s hard for me to choose…
