SalzburgCard?

by kidTwist

I have just come across some information regarding the SalzburgCard. It seems like a pretty good deal, since it covers entrance fees to a lot of attractions, as well as public transportation. Has anybody used the card before? Is it as good of a deal as it seems? Thanks

Re: SalzburgCard?

I haven't used the Salzburg Card but, like all such city cards (there are lots in Europe), it is only a good deal if you use it extensively for the entrances which are free or discounted with it.

If not, you are probably better off buying an ordinary transport pass of some type and just paying entrances for the places you want to visit.

If you don't intend to use all/most of the entrances, I suggest you do a bit of maths and work out whether the card will be worthwhile for you.

thanks for the info. it does seem like an economic value, however my question was really more just "is it all that it says it is?" i don't want to get there, buy the card, try to get on a bus, and find out that it doesn't really cover all public transport and i have to pay a supplemental fee, or something along those lines. it seems pretty legit though, so i think it will be alright.

In my experience such cards cover exactly what they say they do. They are commonplace in tourist-popular European cities and towns, so I don't think you need be concerned about their legitimacy.

It is merely a matter of whether it is worthwhile for your particular plans.

The Salzburg official tourist info site (in English) gives details of the card, and of other fares/travelcards:

Hi

I think the card exists since the year 1999 or 200O or something and we've used it every year since then !
We've never had any problems using the card. On all the attractions mentioned they accept as stated in the information brochure.
For us it is really worth the money !
A 6-day card (adult) costs 43 euro, a 12-day card is 52 euros. We just got back last week and we used the 12-day card. If I have to count the entrance fees we had to pay if we did all of this without the card, I would get way over 120 euros per person !
But, as Leice already said, it all depends on what you want to do/visit/see.
If you plan on taking some lifts/cablecars to go uphill, I think you et the money back very easily, as most of these lifts are quite expensive.
Have a look at my tip on this card for more info : http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/114fff/162/b/

Have fun on your trip ! Salzburgerland is great, to us like a second home !

Travel Tips for Salzburg

Cheap tickets for open-air Salzburg festivals

by felix.austria

If you look for a cheap way to visit a performance of the Salzburg festival, try the open-air "Jedermann" on the Domplatz (in German). Jedermann on Domplatz is one of the traditional perfomances during the Salzburg festival. All you need is patience. One hour before the performance will start, non-seat tickets are sold in front of the back entrance (near St. Peter's). Tickets costs 5 EUR. The standing room is left and right from the audience and you will see almost everything of the performance. Schedule and further information on http://www.salzburgfestival.at (also in english)

Fountains

by kentishgirl


I did notice in the old town especially that a lot of the beautiful fountains were covered with these glass pyramid Louvre style things!

Its a bit disapointing if you are visiting during winter to see the beautiful fountains...just bear in mind that this is only for the winter and to preserve these wonderful monuments.

Mary being crowned at the Dome

by WrigleyTodd

This is going to be hard to explain. Looking directly at the front of the Dome, walk back so you are past the statue of Mary and through the arches across the way. If you back up far enough and then walk slowly forward you'll see that the crown on the cathedral actually slowly places itself on Mary's head when you walk toward the cathedral. This was a little archiectural trick that was done with the statue and the dome. Kinda neat.

A place for romance

by acemj

Salzburg is definitely a romantic place and it's not only because of the history and architecture. Despite the fact that it is Austria's second city behind Vienna, the population still hovers below 150,000 people and it retains its town atmosphere. The laid back nature of the people and the beauty of the surrounding mountains gives Salzburg a very romantic feel.

Too bad I was with globetrott! ;-) Just kidding, Michael.

Salzburg Card

by keeweechic

The Salzburg Card is probably the best little card you can purchase. It will allow you to access the public transport for free as well as give you plenty of discounts to cultural events and tours. The card also comes with a free guidebook. Available at hotels and tourist centres and is valid for 24, 48 or 72 hours from first use.
