Things to Do in Salzburg
If you're a huge fan of The Sound of Music, take a speciality tour of the town and surrounding countryside to make sure you catch all the locations featured in the beloved film—you can even tune up that guitar and sing along. Salzburg is also the home of Mozart; his birthplace and the museum in his honour are some of the most popular tickets in town. For less learning and more snacking, you can also stroll the Old Town streets to take in the historic architecture and cafe scene. Though filled with castles and cathedrals, Salzburg also offers a modern jolt of adrenaline at the Red Bull Hangar-7, where you can fulfil your need for speed by checking out all their land and air racing vehicles. Salzburg hotels put all these locations within easy reach, and skiing the Alps is just a short car ride away.
Getting To & Around Salzburg
Salzburg holidays begin with a flight to the city’s international airport (SZG), just 6 km from downtown. The train can get you to the main station in town in about 20 minutes. Prefer to yell “Taxi!”? You don’t have to—just head to the cab stand outside. Once you’re settled, it’s easy to see the sights by foot, bus or on two wheels (a bike!).
