Salzburg is known for it’s musicians- but there are also some known writers, that have lived in Salzburg. One of them is Peter Handke.
The literature-hiking path is one of the nicest walks in Salzburg, and dedicated to him.
The start of the walk is at the Toscanini Hof at the Clemens-Holzmeister staircase. After a couple of steps, the walk brings you to a couple of points of interest:
like the breakthrough of the defence wall (known as the mayor’s hole) and the Kupelwieser castle. In this castle Handke and his daughter used to live from 1979 to 1987.
There is also the possibility to walk up to the Fortress. One of the most beautiful things of the path is the incredible view of the city of Salzburg.
Alongside the walk there are lanterns, so you can also enjoy the literature walking path in the evening!
