All You Need to Know About the Salzburg Card

Salzburg Card
Save money with the Salzburg Card

Salzburg is a picturesque city just to the north of the Alps. The Salzburg city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and as you look across the city, you can easily see why. Decorated with castles, palaces, and beautiful churches, the landscape truly lives up to its reputation for being the inspirational birthplace of musical prodigy Mozart. Being the fourth largest city in Austria, there’s plenty to do and see for travellers of any kind. Whether you want to stand guard at the famous fortress or enjoy a romantic meal at a Mozart dinner concert.

If you’re visiting Salzburg for the first time, getting the card is a no-brainer. Be admitted free to the museums of Salzburg, dozens of top attractions, and even travel for free on public transport. Not only do you get all of this for nothing, but you can get discounts at theatres, day-trips, and concerts in the city.

If you’re staying at a large hotel you are likely to be able to pick up a Salzburg card there, but if not all of the city’s tourist information offices stock them. The card scheme is excellent value for money, especially if you plan your visit to Salzburg well to make the most of your discounts. The card includes a whole raft of experiences, from river cruises to a trip to the zoo. Enjoy any of 190 Salzburg hotspots and save while you visit. 

If you’re planning a trip to Salzburg, make sure you take a look at the list of events and locations that you can save on. You only have to pay for the period of time you need the Salzburg card for, so have an action packed day whizzing between the city’s attractions; take a long weekend to meander through the galleries and exhibitions; or take a day trip to one of the nearby towns and the beautiful Austrian countryside.
