Quick Notes on the City and Hotel Location

Salzburg is a beautiful, quaint town with a river splitting the old town from the new. While a smallish town with a population of about 150,000 it is a central tourist destination primarily for it being the birthplace and early home of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Somehow it has successfully eluded the typical tourist trap sideshows that tend to overrun cities such as this and instead has created a dynamic and bustling old town with numerous alleys and nooks, each occupied by a restaurant or shop worthy of investigation. Although there is the occasional homeless person, the town is well-known for maintaining a high level of public safety.

It is my hope and expectation that many, or all, of you will capitalize on the opportunity, in the evening hours after the conference, to explore and imbibe the spirit of this wonderful city. To this end, while the hotels near the congress center are beneficial for facile passage to the morning Plenary sessions, having a hotel south of the congress center, or even in the old town itself, will provide both the opportunity for a pleasurable walk down the river path to the congress center in the morning (no more than 10-20 min), and an easy return following your old town explorations in the evening.

Please note that you may be able to book rooms at these hotels without using the service provided by the Salzburg Tourism Board. But make sure to take note if the prices include breakfast and taxes -- all the prices provided by the Tourism Board do. And you most likely will want to take advantage of the morning breakfast offered at your hotel. If you are not familiar with the Austrian morning fare, it is both comprehensive and healthy.
