Gay Guide Salzburg

Salzburg through rose-colored glasses ...

Even if the picturesque streets of Salzburg's historic city center seem to be filled with heterosexual baroque and Mozart fans at first glance, there's more to it than meets the eye. If you take a closer look on the streets and squares, in the parks, cafés and bars you'll discover an active gay and lesbian scene among the city's 150,000 residents. Whether at the Mozartwinkel café, claiming the "world's best sticky nut buns," at the stylish-swank Carpe Diem or on the rooftop terrace of the art deco Stein Hotel on the other side of the Salzach: the city's gays are absolutely integrated and easily mingle with the hetero world.

Evenings can be spent at one of the numerous restaurants, located between the city's a hot gay bar, the Princess in Priesterhausgasse. Those moving from one bar to the other simply have to strut past – there's no better place to see and be seen! If you've come for a big gay evening event, check the dates for one of the HOSI (Homosexual Initiative) festivals. The event is held four times a year at the ARGEKultur culture center, keeping the entire Salzburg scene on its feet until the early morning – including after hours ...
