In the 15th century, the founders of our hotel supplied Venice with silver and raw materials. In return, they brought wine, olives, capers, anchovies, almonds and much more back to Salzburg from “La Serenissima”. Our dishes follow in the footsteps of history and combine High Tauern produce with the lightness of the South, lending them that special Salzburg taste.
Enjoy the dishes created by our chef Michael Scheiber throughout the day, from 12 noon to 10 p.m..
Here, where you are transported back to the good old days, you will feel snug and cocooned. Although the centuries-old walls boasting original wooden panelling and murals have seen plenty in their day, they don’t give anything away. Only those who listen intently will hear them whispering, “This is a good place for you!”.
Our brasserie is a relaxed place brimming with openness and curiosity. Sitting there you could be in Berlin, Paris or New York, yet it exudes pure Salzburg ambience. Laid-back mood, trendy drinks and jazzy music make it a good place for good people. You know, people who take an easy-going attitude to life. In addition to the full assortment of meals offered by the restaurant, we gladly serve snacks and finger food all day long, just as you please.
Feel free to stop by for a Negroni, then we’ll see what the evening holds in store for you.
With the Mönchsberg and the Pferdeschwemme (ancient horse well) forming a spectacular backdrop, you will be immersed in a Mediterranean oasis. Surrounded by olive trees, figs, oranges and oleander, you can soak up that unique summer feeling. A gentle breeze carries the relaxed jazzy sound from our outdoor bar to your table while we serve you perfectly mixed Campari drinks and light dishes. Pure holiday vibe, even for those who have come here for a business meeting.
Our Wine Archive (Weinarchiv) used to be a jazz cellar with vaults that are centuries old. It now stores our precious stock of wines. We gladly open it up in times of high demand or for groups of up to 60 people looking for a cheerful get-together. If you want to keep to yourselves but with other people, we recommend “La Tavolata” which means something like: “Let’s all have a great time together at these long tables.”

ABOUT THE BLAUE GANS
“As an art hotel and restaurant, the Blaue Gans is the ideal partner on the culinary scene. Like the Salzburg Festival itself, it is a trendsetter whilst also cherishing tradition. In the splendid, ancient vaulted dining room, surrounded by contemporary art, or in the enticing outdoor dining area, you can truly enjoy homemade treats. For a long time, I’ve been hooked on the “Schotter-Schnitzel”, which is a Wiener Schnitzel that has already been cut into strips.”
“The art-minded Gfrerer “collects” artists, art lovers and Festival guests the way other people collect fresh herbs and mushrooms on the adjacent Mönchsberg. The restaurant is one of the town’s most beautiful establishments, and distinguishes itself with down-to-earth casual dining.”
“A traditional hotel doesn’t necessarily have to remain old-fashioned. Here, plenty of things have been extensively refurbished, and now the restaurant is one of the prime locations for a modern yet authentic experience. The offal dishes in particular are outstanding.”
“The Blaue Gans is a cultural institution on the world-renowned Getreidegasse.”
