PITTERKELLER – SALZBURG’S MOST AUTHENTIC BEER CELLAR
The PitterKeller, Salzburg’s oldest beer cellar, is a popular meeting point for locals and guests to the city. Students, families, friends or work colleagues all like to meet here – and have been doing so for almost the last 100 years. the traditional and cosy atmosphere makes time fly by. It is particularly easy to fill an empty stomach on regional snacks. Cool, fresh beer can also quench your thirst on a hot day in a peaceful beer garden. The best place to relax is in the shade of a chestnut tree. It doesn’t always have to be tasty roast pork – a fresh, crisp salad with strips of turkey is a bit lighter but just as delicious. And if you are not that hungry a traditional snack board is just enough.Website

Residenz zu Salzburg
19 June 2019
The Salzburg Residenz Palace is a true gem in the midst of Salzburg old town. It merges unique architecture and almost extravagantly furnished venues, which make the former palace complex of the Salzburg sovereigns one of the most magnificent event locations today.
TWO HUNDRED YEARS OF ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY
The first documented reference to the Residenz dates back to 1232. Archbishop Conrad I started the construction of the Bishop’s Palace after the end of the investiture conflict. Several renovations took place between 1519 and 1586, and the Residenz obtained today’s appearance under Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau (1587–1612).
At the beginning of the 17th century, the south wing with the large staircase and the Carabinieri Hall, a wing that connects to the Franciscan church and a large court area were built. Wolf Dietrich’s successors expanded and embellished the complex until the end of the 18th century. The Residenz was used by the Archbishops as a residence as well as for representation purposes.
Living and representing
Anyone who visits the Residenz today follows the same route through the rooms that envoys of foreign princes, statesmen and diplomats had to walk through for an audience with the Archbishop: They were taken from the Carabinieri Hall through the rooms of increasing pomp and splendor of the Knight’s Hall, the Conference Hall and the Antecamera up to the Audience Hall, which concludes the grandeur of the official reception rooms. The Prince Archbishops’ private chambers consisted of the study, the casket room, the bedroom with the private chapel, the Beautiful Gallery, the Throne Room, the White Hall, the Green Room and the Imperial Hall.
Usability of the piano nobile
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart regularly performed in person for the regents in the splendid rooms of the Residenz. The violin concert KV 219 in A major, for instance, was performed for the first time on 20 December 1775 in the Conference Hall.
The Residenz today is owned by the region of Salzburg: The splendid rooms of the piano nobile are still used for representation purposes and events today. The venues can also be hired as a magnificent setting for events of any kind.Website
