MYSTIC & MAJESTIC. Dining here feels a bit as sitting on a knight's table. This beautiful room is about 100 years old, but newly renovated since 2014 and mostly kept in brown and red tones. One of our most popular rooms. The legendary Bürgersaal would be nothing without the mystical-dark paintings by the Austrian painter Karl Reisenbichler. The paintings were created around 1924 and mostly show scenes from the daily life in Salzburg in between 1500 and 1600- this gives the effect of some special haunted castle atmosphere in the Sternbräu. The new interior relies entirely on those cosiness which is also exuded by the distinctive wooden ceiling. This is a place where locals, families and tourists particularly enjoy our gastronomic service. See what is recently written before our Bürgersaal about the new Sternbraeu armorial?

TRADITIONAL & DOWN-TO-EARTH. A real beer bar, which is difficult to find more cozy or "gmiatlich" (as you say in Austria) in whole Salzburg. In this room you can breathe Salzburg's traditional beer culture and even the paintings show only scenes from brewing and the daily former life. Here you can sit together and enjoy one or two mugs of our STERNBIER. For sure we also welcome guests, who only have time for a light and quick lunch. See how we attract all different kinds of clienteles: Especially in the evening you find one or two "Stammtische" in our Braumeisterstube.

AMBIVALENT & ADRETT. May we introduce to you? The SternZeit is the chameleon of the new Sternbräu. A premise that changes temperament, mood and light over and over. A space that constantly redefines itself.

In our SternZeit you can feel the diversity of Sternbräu more than in any other areas in the house. At a first glance it may look as a normal guestroom, but a particular light design, the eye-catching “bottle lamps” on the ceiling, large photos and modern paintings turn this room in some modern and youthful place. A tiled stove and lots of oak wood give some pleasant atmosphere. One of those place you must have seen! The SternZeit is our „Day & Night Bar & Lounge”. This means: Open daily until 2 a.m. in the morning. A new vibrant trendy meeting place in town!
