The best tip that can be given to someone visiting Salzburg is to buy the Salzburg Card as soon as you arrive.

Although it might seem expensive at the outset, it gives you entry to almost all Salzburg attractions for free, and in addition allows use of Salzburg public transport for the duration of the time purchased.

The card also gives discounts on tours and other cultural events in the city making it well worth the money for most visitors.

The Salzburg Card can be bought in three time periods - 24 hours, 48 hours or 72 hours. Note that the time starts counting from the moment the card is purchased. It is also possible to load the card on to compatible Swatch watches.

Even if just visiting the three most popular Salzburg attractions (The Dom Museum, Salzburg Fortress and the Salzburg Residenz), it makes sense to buy the 24 hour card and save money.

Radisson Blu Hotel Altstadt (117yds) from €156
Hotel Stein (118yds) from €71
Hotel Goldgasse (120yds) from €111
Hotel Elefant (129yds) from €93
Hotel am Dom (165yds) from €99

Salzburg Card Reviews

Jamie Trueman, Orlando, Florida

At the time, we weren't sure whether we should buy the Salzburg Card or not, because it seemed pretty expensive, especially considering the state of the dollar.

However, we ended up going for it and it was definitely worth it.

We were able to visit virtually everything in the city for free, and because of that we saw some things we probably wouldn't have bothered with otherwise. For example, we ended up going up the Cable Car at Untersberg, which we didn't even know about before, and the view from the top was one of the highlights of the trip.

My suggestion is as soon as you get to Salzburg, buy this card.
