Casino Salzburg at Schloss Klessheim is a marvelous experience for everyone. In the resplendent rooms of this baroque gem, a wide selection of games, unique architecture as well as exceptional cuisine invite guests to relax and enjoy.
History of Casino Salzburg
It was back in 1935 that Salzburg became one attraction richer: Casino Salzburg at Schloss Mirabell opened its doors. Aficionados of “games of chance” from near and far were infected by the magic of the gaming tables, so much so that the casino soon relocated to the larger premises of Café Restaurant Winkler on the Mönchsberg. In 1993, the gambling opportunities were expanded and the casino moved on a transitional basis to Schloss Klessheim. However, because the “temporary” venue captivated guests to such a degree, the powers-that-be ultimately decided to leave the casino right where it was.
Klessheim “pleasure palace” enthralls visitors even as they approach. Passing perfectly trimmed hedgerows, you make your way through the unique gardens, past the magnificent Triton Fountain and pedestals decorated with recumbent stags, to the actual entrance. Salzburg owes Schloss Klessheim to Archbishop Johann Ernst Graf Thun and his architect Fischer von Erlach. Aside from inspiration drawn from Versaille, he was also influenced by the Italian school. The spaciousness of the building combined with baroque elements adds to the casino’s appeal to locals and visitors alike.
The casino restored to its former glory
After extensive remodeling efforts, since 2016 the casino has greeted guests in renewed splendor. The various gaming areas have been freshly renovated, while the casino lounge along with the Weekend Casino and events bar on the ground floor have been completely redesigned. The expanded restaurant provides ample room for relaxation, also enticing diners with excellent cuisine. Those who are here purely to gamble won’t be disappointed in the slightest: 6 American Roulette tables, 6 Blackjack tables, 2 Easy Hold'em poker tables, 7 regular poker tables, 1 Macau Baccarat table, 29 Easy Roulette tables and 232 slot machines invite guests to hit the jackpot.
