How to get here

By car:
Our hotel does not have a car park. If you arrive by car, we therefore recommend that our guests park in the Mönchsberggarage (=Altstadtgarage Mitte Parkhaus B, Hildmannplatz 1, 5020 Salzburg). From there, choose the exit “Altstadt/Toscaninihof” and you will come out of the garage right next to our house. You get a 30% discount ticket with check-out at the reception.


By train or bus:

The best way to reach us from the railway station is by bus no. 1.

The best way to reach us from the airport is by bus no. 10

(on Sundays and public holidays also bus lines 2+1).

The following applies to both:

Get off at “Herbert-v.-Karajan-Platz”. Walk towards the fortress, along the Festspielhaus, then turn right into the Toscaninihof and left into the inner courtyard. You will find our entrance in the left-hand corner.
