City experience

Breakfast in Salzburg? Like an emperor ... or more like a prince-archbishop? In the city of Mozart this is possible in several coffee houses, hotels and rooftop bars. We have the best tips for the fluffiest milk foam, the most exquisite salmon and the softest breakfast egg! Breathtaking views of the panorama of Salzburg's old town and the fortress included!

The stone terrace: an oasis of calm

With a growling stomach I get into the elevator of the completely renovated Hotel Stein - my goal: the restaurant “Steinterrasse” on the 7th floor. A neatly dressed young man with a half grin on his lips guides me to a table in the front row. When I look at the panorama, I almost spit away. Face to face with the fortress, the cathedral, the town hall and the church of St. Peter, I sink into the gray-mottled chairs. A quick look at the clear breakfast menu shows that there is everything a breakfast heart desires. The delicious food and the fantastic view convince me all along the line. My conclusion: I will definitely be back!

Breakfast: daily from 9 a.m.

The Imlauer Sky Bar & Restaurant: Breakfast like God in France

The "IMLAUER Hotel Pitter" is located in the center of Salzburg's old town on the right, directly opposite the congress center. The terrace on the 6th floor is quite inconspicuous from below, although there is said to be one of the best breakfast offers in Salzburg up there. I would like to see for myself and take the elevator up to gourmet heaven on a sunny Friday morning. Once at the top, the waiter assigns me a table that has already been set with a view of the fortress. Take a deep breath, let go, enjoy - that is my motto today! And implementation is not difficult with this unique view and the lovingly put together breakfast packages. Whether the “gourmet breakfast” for two, the “vitality breakfast” or the “IMLAUER Sky breakfast” with crispy croissants and a cappuccino to “melt away”, every breakfast is served in a pretty cake stand. A pleasure all along the line: for the eye, the stomach and the soul!

Breakfast: daily, 9 a.m.-11.30 a.m.

The Café Bazar: hotspot for all coffee house lovers

It's half past seven in the morning. I stroll along the Salzach in the direction of the Café Bazar. If you love real coffee house culture, you've come to the right place. Here you can hear a rustling newspaper, opposite at the counter two businessmen are talking about the latest developments on the stock exchange. I could sit on the shady terrace for hours, sipping delicious coffee and admiring the fairytale silhouette of Salzburg's old town. In order to taste as much as possible from the extensive breakfast menu, I order the “Bazar sweet” with croissant and jam and the “Bazar sauer” with pretzel sticks and eggs in a glass. And while I am stirring my hot chocolate with whipped cream, lost in thought, the city of Mozart slowly comes to life. I was just about to make my way home with a heavy heart when the waiter stands in front of me with a smile: "May I have some more prosecco, young lady?"

Breakfast: Monday-Friday from 7.30 a.m., Sundays and public holidays from 9.00 a.m. (all day)

The restaurant m32: enjoyment at award-winning level

We recommend the "Restaurant m32" to all those who would like to reward themselves with a wonderful breakfast after a short hike on the Mönchsberg. After a short ascent via the Müllner Church, I reach the breakfast Eldorado. A table at the very end of the terrace is crying out for me to sit down. The last efforts of the ascent are gone when I spot the breathtaking panorama of Salzburg's old town and the Hohensalzburg fortress. Almost too good to be true! While a few birds are playing a singspiel in the distance, I study the menu. The “mountain breakfast” fits perfectly with the altitude and my feeling up here, free and completely detached from the pulsating city life. I am not disappointed: The Salzburg bacon with fresh horseradish, the burratino with herb tomatoes and the coffee with fresh mountain farmer's milk beam me straight into a summery holiday feeling! And after the first-class culinary delight, I visit the Museum der Moderne in the same building. There is hardly a more perfect combination of enjoyment, nature and culture!

Breakfast: Tuesday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Saturday, Sunday and public holidays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
