Salzburg at the top
A special place to experience Salzburg is the rooftop bar “hu:goes14” on the 14th floor of the arte Hotel at Salzburg’s main train station. There you have – with a drink – a fantastic panoramic view of the city by day and night, you are in Salzburg at the top.
At the end of October 2020, on a wonderful late summer day, Gigi LaPajette showed Sven and Jasim the magnificent scenic backdrop of Salzburg from the Rooftop Bar. You look out over the city and the mountains behind it. And at details of city life. Toy-sized people, cars, trains and more. The arte Hotel is part of the Perrons, a builing-complex along platform 1 of Salzburg’s main train station that opened about a year ago.
The Perron is also home to the Salzburg branch of Fit Inn. For visitors who don’t want to miss out on their workout even on vacation. Well-equipped and with a view of the tracks of Salzburg’s main train station, individual admissions without membership are possible here daily from 6 am. to 12 am., even for tourists. Since recently, day memberships are no longer possible here. Even when asked, we have not yet been able to make sense of it. We will ask the head office in Vienna.
You don’t have to be a hotel guest to visit the Rooftop Bar of the arte Hotel Salzburg. Anyone can take the elevator from the hotel lobby to the top and admire Salzburg from above while having a drink. The breakfast room with a view is on the 15th floor. On the 16th is the visitable roof terrace with a stationary telescope.
To the Salzburg Pride 2022 – Salzburg from above!
The arte Hotel Salzburg will be the official Pride hotel this year. For international guests from near and far. In the evening, experience Salzburg at night from above in the Rooftop Bar with a drink between events. Or breakfast on the 15th floor with a great view of everything that awaits you that day. Or sunbathe on the newly furnished roof terrace with bar on the 16th floor. It’s good fun. For Pride Week from 29.08. to 4.09., the arte Hotel offers a 10% discount on the respective room category with the keyword “LGBT in Salzburg”.
Until then, we can enjoy the view over Salzburg with the pictures from the photo shoot with Gigi, Sven and Jasim last late summer.
A Pride Week with mostly very well-attended events on queer topics in the city, a pride parade with more participants than ever before and a brilliant Pride Night at the ARGEkultur – with an exceptional drag show and a brilliant DJ set-up in the basement. Happy people, and lots of them: That was the Salzburg Pride 2022. [Read more]
From 22 October, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg is showing the first comprehensive solo exhibition by African photographer Samuel Fosso. Fosso knows how to document gender-crossing roles and clichés in self-portraits that are of personal and political significance and playfully cross attributions of gender, ethnic origin and social class.
