For many people Salzburg is Austria’s most beautiful city and can even trump Vienna for charm and culture. Even Austrian’s think it is “more Austrian” than Vienna, so if the locals think that, who are we to argue. The city has so much to offer in the form of music, restaurants, sightseeing and shopping, plus it sits in the heart of Europe, making access easy by any form of transport, and is surrounded by some of the most stunning countryside.

  1. Salzburg’s Aldstadt
    Salzburg’s Old Town is famous for its Baroque architecture and it is one of the best-preserved examples north of the Alps and was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The city has three universities, so as you can imagine it has all the buzz and culture that comes with a student population and the setting here makes it comparable to Oxford or Cambridge. It’s also a small city, so it is easy to get around and the Alpine scenery that is its backdrop is an added attraction.
  2. It’s the birthplace of Mozart
    As the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Salzburg has flourished as a European centre for music and music festivals. Naturally, there is a Mozart museum and if you’re a fan of “The Sound of Music”, this city played a role in the film and you’ll be able to do the tour of all the main places used in this eternally popular film.
  3. It’s close to the Eastern Alps

    Many expatriates who plan to live in Salzburg are no doubt further attracted to the city for its close proximity to the breathtaking Central Eastern Alps, and the potential for adrenalin-fuelled weekends on the slopes. There are numerous ski resorts in the area that can be reached in under an hour from the city centre, meaning that skiing and snowboarding can be your new sports of choice.

  4. It’s not far from Munich or Vienna
    With Germany just a short distance away from Salzburg you can easily visit Munich. Trains run from the city centre every hour and the journey only takes 90 minutes. Alternatively, if you want to experience the hustle and bustle of Austria’s capital, you can, for example, travel by rail to Vienna in under 3 hours.
  5. There’s plenty of work in Salzburg
    Anyone from EU, EEA and Switzerland can work in Austria without the need for a work permit. After Vienna, it has the biggest job market in Austria with many small and medium sized companies based there. Jobs in the tourism industry are plentiful, and because of its location near the German border, Salzburg is also a hub for automobile companies, many of which have their registered head offices in the city. Furthermore, the city’s location at the heart of Western Europe makes it a popular choice for the European headquarters of many international companies. The Salzburg W.A Mozart Airport is just a 15-minute drive from the city centre and offers flights to destinations throughout Europe, perfect for those who travel regularly for business.

Coffee houses and Vienna, Austria’s capital go hand in hand. In the 19th century they were the meeting places for important writers, artists, musicians and philosophers, but now there is a growing trend to more modern versions of the traditional coffee house, although the historical ones still remain for those who want to enjoy a sense of the past. We’ve put together a list of 5 places to drink coffee in Vienna.

Drinking coffee in Vienna…

Cafe Schwarzenberg

Cafe Schwarzenberg is famed for being the oldest café on the Ringstrasse. It is frequented by business people who enjoy reading a newspaper over a coffee and strudel after work. As well as the many dainty desserts and hot drinks on offer, there is a spread of Austrian dishes on the menu.

Süssmund Kaffeebar

Süssmund Kaffeebar is a micro-roastery that was founded in 2014 by Nikolaus Hartman. Based in the Old Post Office it is a hip, stripped-down venue with an elegant layout. The coffee is ethically sourced, with the company paying close attention to the processing and cooperation with farmers.

Cafe Prueckel

Cafe Prueckel has been at the heart of the Viennese coffee house movement for over 100 years. The beautifully decorated 1950s-style café, with its tuxedo-clad waiters, was added to the UNESCO Cultural Heritage list in November 2011.

Cafe Central

Cafe Central opened in 1876 and customers like Trotsky, Freud and Stefan Zweig have taken their coffee here. The menu includes a broad selection of classic Viennese dishes, traditional coffee specialities and sweet treats from the in-house patisserie. This really is a bit of history with coffee.


Zweitbester is another contemporary coffee house. There are no ghosts of the past here. Furnished in an industrial style, with open-brick walls, gray concrete floors and simple seating, it is still comfortable and totally unique. The dishes are fresh and created using organic vegetables, regional meats and bread from an organic bakery. There are daily specials on the menu and brunch served until 2pm on the weekends.

First off, let’s just say that you don’t have to be a skier to love living in the Austrian Alps. Certainly, many of the properties for sale in the stunning alpine areas are near to ski slopes; some of them even have a ski slope running fairly near the front door, and this puts off people who would rather stick to skiing as a spectator sport. So, if you can leave preconceptions about Austria aside, let’s look at why it is a fantastic place to own a holiday home.

  1. In the famous Tyrol region, which is about 400 miles from the capital Vienna, there is a host of activities, ranging from culinary schools to creative arts classes, top class wellness spas, thermal waters and lots of luxury shopping, as well as a host of museums in Innsbruck the capital of Western Austria.
  2. Drink at height. In Sölden, a tiny village of 5,000 people, you can take a gondola lift to IceQ. This is a glass-enclosed, cube-shaped building cantilevered at nearly 10,000 feet above sea level. The views from the glass-walled outdoor terrace are as spectacular as you imagine and the menu includes traditional Austrian and modern international dishes, plus wine and cocktails.
  3. The Aqua Dome in Langenfeld is home to some famous thermal waters that are always open, no matter how cold it is outside. The spa has 12 pools and there is a restaurant plus hotel accommodation on site as well. You can have cocktails served by the thermal pools and swim under a starry sky, as it is open until midnight.
  4. Enjoy the bling! If you know anyone who likes Swarovski Crystal then they will definitely want to visit Swarovski Crystal Worlds at its Waters HQ. There is no mere factory tour here – the visit will take you through a series of art installations with many surprises and hidden twists and turns. The building is amazing as well, with its grass-covered roof and waterfall. Of course, there is also a shop selling everything that Swarovski has ever created.
  5. Austria in general is finding increasing favour with expats for its laid back lifestyle and as a place where people can find a great work-life balance. Austrians take their leisure time seriously and finishing early on Friday to enjoy an Aperol spritzer is the norm here. Food products are generally of a high quality and organic produce is easy to find. It’s also a great country for outdoor exercise: apart from the skiing, alpine hiking and getting out on a bicycle are among the activities that expats relish here.
