Blaue Gans

Urban gourmet-hideaway at the heart of Salzburg

Tucked away between Getreidegasse and Karajan-Platz epicures will find a true insider tip here. Blaue Gans is Salzburg’s oldest inn and at the same time it also is the city’s first and only arthotel. Design, individuality, and around 120 works of art have been characterising the place since its careful renovation at the hands of owner Andreas Gfrerer. As a refuge for gourmets the Blaue Gans offers excellent cuisine – served under the historic vaulted ceiling of the restaurant or at the modern brasserie-bar with its cool urban flair.


A meeting place for all those with a relaxed attitude towards life, who come here for good drinks and the laid-back atmosphere – and the food! Snacks and delicious finger food are served all day, so are multiple-course menus for anyone who’s really hungry. Perfect for a time-out from shopping! And the outdoor area at the foot of the spectacular rock face of Mönchsberg is a wonderful spot and perfect to indulge and lose track of time.
