Low-key elegance, aristocratic tradition and passion for excellence combine to make the Goldener Hirsch unique in Salzburg. Located amid the glittering splendour of Getreidegasse, the hotel is closely associated with the Countess Harriet Walderdorff who personally oversaw the restoration and decoration of the medieval townhouses it occupies. The presence of an inn on the site was mentioned as early as 1564. In more recent times, its guests have included such luminaries as Leotyne Price, Paulette Goddard, Artur Rubinstein and conductor Herbert von Karajan. Across from the Festival Hall, the hotel and its fine restaurants are closely associated with the Salzburg Festival. Its rooms are comfortable and furnished in tastefully understated farmhouse style.
