Salzburg

Austria
Salzburg travel packages

A city of music, art and architecture. Salzburg is a baroque jewel in a spectacular alpine setting. Mozart and the Sound of Music come alive here.

Salzburg's Old Town is comprised of renowned baroque architecture, forming one of Europe's best-preserved town centers (complete with the continent's oldest restaurant). All of this, combined with the Alps as its backdrop, make Salzburg unforgettable. Salzburg's two claims to fame are as the birthplace of Mozart and the stage for The Sound of Music. Highlights of the city include the imposing Salzburg Cathedral and the Hohensalzburg Fortress, which dominate the city skyline.

Salzburg is as much known for its impressive natural surroundings as for its charming Old Town. No trip to Salzburg is complete without a visit to the unspoilt countryside nearby. This includes sights such as the Hellbrunn Palace. Further afield you'll find Berchtesgaden, home to Hitler's Eagle's Nest. Salzburg has a very festive atmosphere throughout the year. There are many classical music performances, outdoor summer festivals and a beautiful Christmas market. The Mirabell Palace is another must-see.

You can also find delicious Austrian cuisine throughout Salzburg. The local white wines as well as local beers are worth sampling. We recommend the atmospheric beer halls of the Augustiner brewery.

Where to stay in Salzburg

Salzburg's chocolate-box Old Town is the location for most of the hotels we offer in the city, along with some options a short walk away. For that true king of the hill feeling, however, a castle high above the city is hard to beat, and we can certainly provide rooms in one as well. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.

A truly unique 5-star hotel in a former castle that will amaze and delight you with its elegance and service as well as its fantastic views over the city.

Things to do in Salzburg

You might think that Salzburg's only about Mozart and the Sound of Music, and while these are major preoccupations, there's more to the city than that, as you can see on a private walking tour. There are popular day trip destinations in several directions, with the Eagle's Nest (Hitler's mountain retreat), and Hallstatt, the popular alpine lakeside village both being within comfortable driving distance. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider for adding later.

JayWay Travel is an outstanding agency that allows the traveler to decide how much or how little to have planned with extremely knowledgeable, responsive and dedicated personnel. We were incredibly appreciative and grateful for the excellent and punctual tour guides, excursions and transfers from city to city, and the ability to have our own English speaking local JayWay contact available by a loaner phone for any questions that might have arisen. This is top notch service; thank you JayWay Travel!

Frequently Asked Questions about travel to Salzburg

Can I pay by card?

Credit cards are widely accepted in Salzburg, but we still recommend having 20 EUR/person/day in cash. You can take out Euros from the ATMs in the entrances to banks, or exchange other currencies at exchange offices.

How can I get around Salzburg?

Salzburg is relatively small compared to its outsized fame! It is easy to get around on foot. If you want to reach the elevations within the city limits, you can get Salzburg Card, which provides both discounts and free entry to some museums, as well as full usage of public transportation, including funiculars. Salzburg's bike infrastructure is fantastic, so consider renting a bike and riding down the Salzach river. The public transportation runs 24/7 and is very frequent, but the city's taxis are also affordable and safe.

When are the local shops and cultural hotspots open?

Salzburg's museums are generally open from 10 AM to at least 6 PM, but are usually closed on Mondays and public holidays. Concert halls offer acoustic experiences nearly every day. Shops open from the early morning until around 8 PM but close on Sundays. Souvenir shops await guests year round, but close in the late afternoon. Some restaurants close on Mondays.

How many days should I spend in Salzburg?

Salzburg calls for at least one full day, if not two (making for three nights in total). The small city is an excellent base for day trips into the Alps, to visit places like Hallstatt, the Eagle's Nest, salt mines, and more.

Is Salzburg safe?

Like any other place in Austria, Salzburg is very safe.
