Since 1122 the name SIMMERL is known for a cozy atmosphere and hospitality. Sankt Leonhard’s oldest restaurant, the SIMMERL, surprises with the immediate feeling of well-being and the interplay of tradition and modern spirit.

With its ideal location directly at the gates of the city of Salzburg, the SIMMERL is a perfect starting point for genuine connoisseurs of the Mozart city and its breathtaking surroundings. The picturesque Untersberg is in front of you – often referred to as the center of Central Europe – and the mountain world of Salzburg, which lures in summer with lush green meadows and in winter with sparkling, snow-covered slopes. The stunning panorama you can see from your room is worth a trip.
