What does 'Romantic' mean to you? Does it suggest an intimate space where you and your beloved can lose yourselves in each others' eyes? Or is it an historic site brimming with reminders of the long-ago past? Perhaps it's a small slice of natural paradise, far away from the every-day world. Whatever your definition, you'll find someplace special in our list of Salzburg's most romantic restaurants.
Tucked away in a tower of Hotel Schloss Mönchstein, on a mountain overlooking Salzburg, The World's Smallest Restaurant is also Salzburg's most romantic place to dine. This tiny eight square-metre dining room is perfect for just the two of you, though it will seat up to four. It makes the perfect place to pose the question or to celebrate a special anniversary.
Romance of a different nature can be found in the 1,200-year-old St Peter Stiftskeller. Once the inn of Salzburg's Benedictine abbey, today its cosy cellar rooms exude the romance of the past. Upstairs, the past comes alive as musicians in period dress perform Mozart during dinner concerts.
For those who seek the romance of nature, a trip to Angusta Grill in St Gilgan holds delightful promise. St Gilgan, birthplace of Mozart's mother, sits on the edge of beautiful Wolfgangsee, one of the region's magnificent Alpine lakes. Or, closer to Salzburg, Schlosswirt zu Anif offers exquisite fine dining with breathtaking views of nearby Untersberg.
For the romance of glamour, not to say fame, Restaurant Goldener Hirsh can't be beat. Located on historic Getreidegasse, the Goldener Hirsh is where the glitterati gather after performances during the Salzburg Festival. From Elizabeth Taylor to the Rothchilds, the Prince of Wales to Pavarotti, the Gettys and Picasso, this restaurant has served some of the most celebrated people in the world.
Coming full circle back to intimate dining rooms, Flavour, on the river's Right Bank, is a cosy wine bar and restaurant carved from the base of Kapizunerberg. Softly lit and charmingly decorated, it's offers romantic ambience, pleasant service and imaginative food.
