Salzburg is one of my favorite cities in Austria. Many people associate Salzburg with Mozart or with the Salzburg Festival, but the city has much more to offer than the commonly known sights! During a trip through Europe, Salzburg is always worthwhile and it’s easy to explore: Many beautiful spots in the city are within walking distance. And those who get a longing for nature are also in good hands in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

To make sure that your trip to Salzburg won’t break the bank and you can still see all the sights, you should get the Salzburg Card* right before your stay. You will save yourself expensive entrance fees and waiting times in the most important sights. With your Salzburg Card, you can even use public transport in Salzburg for free!
