Who we are

Hotel Scherer has existed since 1850 and has always been family owned. Originally operated as a guesthouse, the hotel business was started in 1970 after a fundamental renovation. Since then, our hotel has been remodeled and expanded several times; the last major renovation took place in 2020. Our classic city hotel is ideally located: situated on a quiet side street, yet very central. This makes the Hotel Scherer your ideal starting point for your stay in Salzburg. From here you can explore the world-famous sights and cultural life of our city – or take excursions into the surrounding countryside, which is characterized by many natural beauties. Competent advice and personal service are very important to us. We are committed to meeting our guests with sincere cordiality every day. In this sense, we wish you a wonderful stay in Salzburg and in our house. Family Scherer & Team

The hotel is only a few metres from the Tauernradweg or Mozartradweg Salzachpromenaden-Radweg. It is the only hotel in the city that is so close to the cycle path and the banks of the Salzach and at the same time has such a good location to the city centre.

The distance to the pedestrian zone is about 1km to a maximum of 1.2km. It is less than 10 minutes by bike along the Salzach.

  • Service and help in case of technical problems can be found immediately around the corner 50 metres from the hotel + Ideal accommodation also for racing bikes and e-bikes
