The last time I visited Salzburg dates back to ages ago. Back then, I did not know (nor did I care) that there was a casino in town. I was more into the UNESCO world heritage aspect featuring the Baroque architecture of the gorgeous city, the Christmas markets and being in the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the Phil Ivey of classical music.
The name 'Salzburg' literally translates into 'salt castle' and tells a lot about the city's rich past of salt mining. The gorgeous castle dominating the city center is the expression of its past wealth and many mining installations can still be visited today. The castle itself is where Poker is being played today among all other standard casino games. As a matter of fact, Salzburg is home to one of the most amazing casino setups in Europe: Casino Salzburg, part of the Casinos Austria group, is located in the Baroque palace of Schloss Klessheim, just a few minutes driving outside the city center. The casino is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike, whether they like to gamble or not, since I was told the place is the stuff fairy tales are made of.
During my visit at Casino Seefeld, the charming wooden ski-lodge-style Poker room, I kindly got invited to join the Casino Austria Poker Tour stop in Salzburg, an offer one cannot really refuse ... I am looking forward to being allowed to document my visit there with plenty of Poker and Casino City Guide photos.
