Many places will shut as Christmas Eve is main celebration in Austria during Christmas and Austrians celebrate at home. There will be a list of restaurants which open on the net from tourist information center. You can find one of last year and new one should come closer to December. As many tourists will be around various places will open. Peterskeller is a nice place.

Are you staying at a hotel? They would offer meals. We were there for Christmas Eve at a guest house so didn't expect any meal. We had planned to eat our main meal at noon Christmas and buy snacks and drinks for our room since so many places were closed. We were fortunate that our Guest House decided to offer a nice meal after all. Peterskeller was closed Christmas Eve but was open Christmas Day.

Christmas Eve is the "really celebrated" holiday, and everyone is home with friends and family.

It is still early to know which restaurants will announce that they will be open, but I would check with your hotel and ask them if they will have their restaurant open, or if they know of any open restaurants.

Agree with the above advice,

The 24th does catch out a lot of visitors. A lot of places close down early or are not open at all.

Hi Sally, if it is any help, my family enjoyed a very good Christmas Eve dinner, a couple of years ago, at the Restaurant at the Best Western Hotel Imlauer Stieglbrau. It was very popular on the night, well decorated, with lots of families and we made a booking before we left Australia.

We booked via email direct and had no problems at all.

Although we were only there for dinner Best Westerns in Salzburg are nothing like they are in Australia, they are a fair bit more upmarket.

FYI we had Christmas Day lunch at St Peters Stiftskeller, expensive but for a once in a lifetime experience very nice.

Enjoy
