One-of-a-Kind Pet Getaways
Our top five pet-friendly destinations to give you and your fur baby a rewarding experience.
On my first Austrian trip, I was amazed at how integrated dogs were in everyday life, from cafés to local markets, pets were always in tow. Salzburg, Austria is especially ideal for pet travel because of its small-town feel with all the historic landmarks and old-world charm you’d hope to find.
Stay in the famed Hotel Sacher Salzburg, where pets are treated like royalty with their Sacher Pets Program. A cozy basket bed and custom blanket await each furry guest along with a guide book with pet-friendly local tips and even recipes for gourmet dog food. Leashes in various lengths and bags to clear away dog droppings are available at the reception, and they can even arrange “Dog-Sitters” for you.
The narrow streets of Salzburg, leading up the hill to the classic city center – recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site – will introduce you and your pet to Austrian life, with antique shops, little cafés and local stores to discover. Stop in and indulge in any shop or café that you like and your pet will be warmly welcomed. End your day with an outdoor concert (there’s always one in the city center) celebrating Salzburg’s rich musical history.
