Café Tomaselli in the heart of Salzburg's Altstadt is one of the most renowned European coffee houses. No other café in Austria can look back on such a long history. The Tomaselli is still family-owned and stylishly represents more than 300 years of Austrian coffee house tradition. The historical ambience, the unique location on the Alter Markt, just a few steps away from the Salzburg Cathedral and the Getreidegasse, and the tempting selection of coffee specialities and homemade pastries make up the charm of the house. Long-established Salzburg families, businessmen, students, artists and tourists can all be found here. During the festival season you can meet numerous actors and opera stars as well as the international festival celebrities. In those days, personalities such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Max Reinhardt and Herbert von Karajan visited the café.
