Tucked down a back street in Salzburg’s old town, Hotel Goldgasse represents a modern take on its historic neighbourhood. As you enter, copper decor references the building’s past life as a coppersmith’s workshop. The rooms have a contemporary feel with photographs of opera scenes printed onto the walls, a well-stocked SMEG mini fridge and a really comfy bed. After settling in for the evening, I ventured back downstairs to eat. The hotel restaurant Gasthof Goldgasse is a real treat, where dishes reflected a farm-to-table approach and a twist on Austrian culinary traditions. It’s a very meat-centric menu, though if that doesn’t suit, the chefs are more than accommodating. Breakfast is also served in the restaurant, and a plate of eggs served sunny side up, proved the perfect start to the day.
