While you're there

Salzburg is the fourth largest of Austria. It is located on the banks of Salzach river, near the German borders and north of the Alps. The city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Salzburg is famed for its old world glamour, made all the more striking by the majestic backdrop of snow-capped Alps.

Over 4,000 events are held each year including the Easter, Whitsun and Summer Festivals, Dialogs at the Mozarteum, the Sommerszene, Jazz Festival, Culture Days and Advent Singing. A multitude of museums, galleries, sculptures and exhibitions promise an unlimited cultural experience.

Salzburg has one of the finest preserved medieval old towns in Europe, criss-crossed with romantic winding shopping streets and venerable market places and adorned with outstanding architectural monuments of the later baroque era. Piazzas and fountains, the stunning Domkirche Cathedral, palaces, pleasure gardens, churches, monasteries and catacombs, confectionaries and patisseries, the oldest restaurant in the continent. And towering above it all, the breathtaking 900 year old fortress Festung Hohensalzburg: the magnificent edifice that dominates the city’s skyline – and is itself framed by the spectacular encirclement of mountains stretching into the horizon.

Taste the Kleiner Brauner, Melange or Einspänner, which are coffee specialities in Salzburg. Accompany them with cake or pastries such as a piece of Sacher Torte chocolate cake, apple strudel or a Salzburger Nockerl soufflé.

Have a walk through Salzburg’s famous streets and window-shopping in the historic city
center, Austria’s most beautiful shopping centre featuring the latest fashions, traditional costumes or sweet souvenirs. Salzburg will leave no wish unfulfilled.

  • "Easy and Comfort "    
    It was a very smooth and comfortable ride from Zurich to Salzburg. I truly enjoyed the ride on the train overlooking the views of the alps and fields.  
  • "Budapest to Wien trip"    
    very good experience.No issues  
  • "Awful experience"    
    The train was so full that the corridors were blocked with people standing as well as suitcases in the aisle. I would not wish this on my worst enemy. Reservations are not permitted when booking from South Africa - we tried for the other rail journeys upon arrival at the station. It's not suitable to have 2 adults in their 70's (one who suffers from vertigo and another who has had a hip replacement) as well as a 11 year old and 5 year. Awful experience.
