Getting in Salzburg

By plane

Salzburg has its own airport called W.A. Mozart (SZG). The 6 kilometers to the city center will take you about 15 minutes by taxi without much traffic or about 20 minutes by bus.

By car

Salzburg is situated on the Vienna – Munich highway, numbered A1 in Austria and A8 in Germany. Parking in the city center is very limited. It’s best to leave your car in one of the many parking garages and continue by foot. One of the cheapest garages is the City Center managed by Contipark, located across the train station. It’s about 30 minutes walk away from the city center or you can take a bus from the train station. Another option is to leave your car in one of the few P+R locations. The parking fee includes access to public transportation.

By train

Train services from Vienna or Munich to Salzburg are frequent and convenient, so many tourists arrive to the city by train. The walk from the train station to the city center takes about 30 minutes, but there are also buses available.
