Hi, we spent Christmas in Salzburg a couple of years ago. We booked at St. Peter Stifskellar for Christmas day lunch and it was wonderful. We were able to contact them via email info@haslauer.at, you will need to make a reservation.

You will need to book Christmas eve dinner as well as not restaurants are open. The Salzburg Tourist office www.salzburg.info keep lists of restuarants that are open during this period. If you contact them and they don't have the list for this year ready yet, get them to emailed you last years list. We did this and were then able to contact restuarants direct to see what was planned.

Good luck and enjoy Salzburg at Christas, it is fantastic.

We also enjoyed the St. Peter Stifskellar on Christmas Day but you do need reservations. Christmas Eve might be more difficult. Are you staying at a hotel that has a restauran? Christmas Eve is when the Austrians celebrate Christmas so it's much harder to find something open then. You could eat a large meal at noon and then buy snacks and drinks to just have on your own if you can't find anything.

We've had Christmas Eve dinner/celebrations at both the Hotel Sacher and the Hotel Bristol. You can't go wrong with either one. Great food and nice Christmas ambiance.

The Salzburg Tourist Office www.salzburg.info has now released a comprehensive list of venues for Christmas Eve as well as New Years Eve. BTW Hotel Bristol is already fully booked for CE and St Peters Stiftskellar is not offering dinner on Christmas Eve - but will do Christmas Day. Best to get onto that list pretty quickly as based on my enquiries this past week many venues seem to be filling fast.
