hotel stein.

Monday, January 30, 2012

when i get emails from people asking, “i’m making a trip to austria soon – what should i do in salzburg?”, it’s hard for me to answer because there are 100 thoughts bouncing around in my head.  you’ve gotta go to linzergasse and be sure to stroll down getreidegasse and then stop by o’malley’s and don’t forget mirabell gardens and augustiner’s super fun and the salzach is just gorgeous and the fortress is magnificent and cafe mozart’s nice and reyna is my favorite and, whatever you do, don’t stay here!, i want to scream. 

well, the other day it occurred to me that i’ve failed to mention one of salzburg’s best kept secrets: hotel stein.

lounging on the hotel stein roof while sipping tea and watching the sunset is one of my happy places.

fun fact: in the cooler months, they provide cozy fleece blankets to bundle up with, whereas in the 90 degree summer heat, you can bask in the glory of the fortress beneath an umbrella (while eating huge bowls of ice cream).

OMG, you had me at Hotel Stein. When I studied in Salzburg, this became our go to place after a night out on the town or if we wanted to shed our college garb and glam it up for a night. I have a friend who's husband is stationed in Landstuhl & they were visiting Salzburg for the first time & asked for my recommendation. Naturally, I told her about Hotel Stein. after meeting new friends at the Augustinerbräu, they all went to the rooftop for drinks and the spectacular view. They loved it and she couldn't thank me enough for this recommendation. Ich liebe Hotel Stein!

Any place that gives out blankets to help fight off the cold weather is A-OK in my book.
