Sporer is an amazing place. We have been visiting Sporer whenever we’ve been in Salzburg over the past two decades. It never loses its magic.

Sporer enjoys a prominent position on the famous historic street Getreidegasse 39 next door to Hotel Goldener Hirsch. In all likelihood you’ll find it by the crowd outside drinking one of its incredible brews or by the numerous regulars who return to refill their bottles. We’ve even taken ours back from the U.K. for a refill!

Sporer is well lived family run business dating back four generations.

Michael Sporer and his team are fantastic and provide the warmest of welcomes to everyone.

This is a place where locals, regular visitors and tourists gather to enjoy a drinks or two. We have made many lasting friendships here and always look forward to our next visit.

It’s well worth planning your visit to ensure you have the opportunity to experience Sporer.

The opening hours are:

Monday - Friday 10:00 - 19:00
Saturday - 09:00 - 17:00
Sunday & public holiday -closed

Please visit - you will remember this place forever!

We have visited Sporer many times since 2003. It’s a place that we look forward to visiting and would encourage any traveller in Salzburg to do the same.

Sporer is absolutely unique. Named after the founder whose family still own and run the business it brings locals and travellers together. There’s always a great atmosphere.

Sporer is easily found next door to the fantastic Hotel Goldener Hirsch. It’s so popular that visitors will often overflow onto the World famous Getreidegasse on which it is situated.

During our many visits to Sporer we have met visitors from all over the World, some of whom have become good friends.

I cannot recommend a visit to Sporer highly enough.

If you enjoy the ‘Sporer” range of drinks take not that you cannot buy this anywhere other than from Salzburg and currently the only Country it can be exported to is Germany so stock up while you are there. You can even take your empty bottles back and get them refilled.

Go and see.

Stopped here for a tasting after seeing this on a Rick Steves show. Our favorite was their pear schnapps, so we asked for a large bottle to be wrapped for transport home. Unfortunately, when we got home, we realized that we had a large bottle of their pear liqueur instead. Not something we can enjoy sipping so it was rather disappointing end to a fun tasting.

This little bar makes their own spirits and liqueurs, and the list is several pages long so there's a lot to choose from, and they will give you some help depending on your tastes. You can get a beer or a wine here, but with so much on offer there's no need. If you don't want to drink spirits straight up, they make a sort of a cocktail drink where they mix in one shot with a locally made brew and they serve it hot, it's delicious. Be wary with your wallet, you could find yourself buying 1 or 2 bottles to take home like I did, as well as 5 or 6 spirits. Just a fun authentic experience.

My traveling friends like schnapps and whiskeys and bourbons... I prefer wines, and to my delight, the Austrian "likor" (a lower-alcohol and sweeter sibling of schnapps.) This place offers a way to pop in for a quick sip of something throughout the day. They also produce their own schnapps and likors -- one of the few things I brought home as a souvenir.
The place is VERY small, and the sipping crowd often spills out onto the street directly in front. So it can be a little wait to get up to the bar area to place an order, but the staff is very patient and knowledgeable should you need some guidance.

Seeing so many people outside the small “bar” (way too hot, inside) I decided to have various different wines. The service is prompt, the prices reasonable, and it was a wonderful way to meet new people and interact with other cultures.

Sporer is a small bar and back-room which serves many flavors of likor & schnapps, as well as a selection of excellent Austrian wines. The likor & schnapps are all produced by the Sporer family, and the very friendly staff will help you select individual shots or flights (€7). We sampled a fair few tasty drinks, and brought some to take home - which fortunately survived in our checked baggage. Prost!

This is an old fashioned schnapps store. But they have samples and flights! Not overly cheap, but a great way to try a bunch a different flavors you'd otherwise never see.

On one of the main shopping streets , this tiny bar was hiving on a Saturday afternoon with people standing outside in the mall entry and on street.
Had the hot orange punch which was great to warm you up.
Went off for shopping and had to come back for another!
