Salzburg: Perfect day

Hunting for traditional products in Salzburg

City Guide
Paulina Szmydke,

Start your Salzburg shopping day at the unique Café Fürst on Alter Markt. It was here, in 1890, that chocolatier Paul Fürst created his famous Mozartkugeln pralines. The coffee shop sticks meticulously to the original recipe

Select an Austrian gem from Köchert’s elegant jewellery collection, which you will find close by on Neuer Markt. This jeweller was Empress Elisabeth’s favourite in the 19th century

Stop at Augarten for its world-famous porcelain. Some 300 years of tradition reside in its timeless classics, such as the Maria Theresia dinner service, created for the Empress to decorate her imperial hunting lodge

Snack on one of the innovative dishes served in cones at Carpe Diem Finest Fingerfood on Getreidegasse. Go for the pumpkin cone with tuna, ginger and avocado salad, or try the delicious beef tartare with potato purée and rocket salad

Behind one of the most elegant historical façades on Alter Markt, you will find Steindl, a women’s fashion store which has kept its stylish 1900 décor. The family-run boutique stocks some pretty, modern livery by the Habsburg label

Sperl has been synonymous with exclusive gloves, lingerie and accessories here since 1564. Chic women still don’t miss a chance to stop at the Rathausplatz shop, for a piece from the latest La Perla collection

Gehmacher’s home interiors is just a few steps away. Plunge into a universe of perfectly styled boudoirs, chalets and parlours. This specialist has been around since 1786.

Let Forstenlechner on Mozart Platz show you a different take on the Austrian dirndl and lederhosen. You will find it remarkable how traditional costume can fit in with a modern-day wardrobe

Feel regal while dining at Schloss Mönchstein on Mönchsberg. The castle’s own restaurant has an enticing selection of Austrian specialities. Start with a duck breast on apricots and goose-liver sauce, and treat yourself to the semi-liquid chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and spicy oranges
