The Mayburg Salzburg is much more than accommodation. Located in the heart of a residential area, it offers a rare insider’s view of Salzburg, a city rich in tradition. The hotel is the best starting point to discover the city outside of travel guides, a lively base for explorers where withdrawal and togetherness are available and welcome in equal measure, joie de vivre just a stone’s throw from the Mayburger quayside, surrounded by the impressive Alpine mountain scenery. An oasis for regaining energy, sharpening your thoughts and getting to know Salzburg with ease in a wholly new way.
Universal talent, local hero, artist and simply part of Salzburg: Josef Mayburger (1814–1908) and the city have a close connection. He went down in history particularly in his role as local councillor and chair of the City Beautification Association when he saved various monuments from disappearing. At the same time, he stands for progress and innovative spirit. But it was the surrounding nature he loved most: the fantastic landscape of the Salzburg region. He immortalised it in innumerable paintings characterised by minute precision and a unique use of light.
Josef Mayburger was a visionary and mindful nature lover and wore his heart on his sleeve. A unique character who was committed to the bigger picture and had an eye for detail that knew no bounds. Taking inspiration from his work, we dedicate a hotel to him.
His life was shaped by his passion for aesthetics, culture and the countryside around him. He could sink into the beauty of the Salzburg region for hours at a time and captured what he saw on canvas. The Mayburg Salzburg is a homage to his life‘s work and the beauty of things. This can be seen in playful modern details, such as the butterfly collections and the many landscape paintings by Mayburger displayed throughout the hotel. The colour concept, from earthy to rich blue-green tones, is characteristic of his works and affords the hotel a high recognition value.
Like Josef Mayburger, we know that fresh inspiration comes from the mix of time taken for oneself and time spent in community. Art, nature and pleasure inspired by Josef Mayburger, brought to life in our hotel.
