Parking in the center

by mirchica

We'll be traveling through Austria by car in October and I'd like to visit Salzburg. Unfortunately our route is long so we wouldn't have much time in the city. What I was thinking about is a walk around the old city for 2-3 hours? I was wondering are there car parkings in the center and how much they cost? I think we'd be travelling Sunday or Monday.
Thanks in advance

I just returned from a day there a few weeks ago, and there are parking areas near the old city (we arrived by bus, so not sure what the cost is--can't be much for 2-3 hours) but your comment about the days made me remember that we were there on a Monday and 2 of the 3 places we wanted to go were closed on Mondays! If you are just walking around (which should be fun!) that should not be a problem---definitely walk through St Stephens Cemetery if nice weather!

Also Sunday is a bad day, as all the stores are closed.

I have spent Sunday and Monday innbSalzburg twice and have always found plenty to keep me occupied. Yes there are some sites closed on Mondays and the shops are closed on Sundays, but to be perfectly honest, I didn't even notice, as all the churches are open and as suggested, you can wander through the cemeteries (my favourite is behind St Peterskirche.) The castle is open as well and as you only have 2-3 hours, you will not even be able to manage all the things that are available on either day. I can't help with parking but even if you have to park a little way out of the city centre, the transport by trolley bus is very good. It shouldn't be too much of a problem, I would guess.
It's a beautiful city and well worth the effort even for a few short hours. You will certainly leave with the intention of returning when you have more time.

Thanks everybody :)
This is what I exactly want - to feel it and make me return for longer ;)
And for the parking,I wanted to be in the center not to lose time in catching the bus but will lose time in finding a parking and so probably it's really better park somewhere else and take a tram or bus.

There are several P&R - places around Salzburg and driving to the city is really not a lot of fun most of the time.
The system of one-way-trafic is made in order to keep drivers out, so be prepared !

Travel Tips for Salzburg

History of Salzburg

by grayfo

The earliest traces of human remains found in the Salzburg area date back to the Neolithic Age. The first known settlers were Celts from around 15 BC who were later colonised by the Romans around the year 45. Juvavum as the settlement was called became one of the most important cities in the Roman province of Noricum.

After the collapse of the Roman Empire, Salzburg was colonised by Bavarian settlers, and became a part of Bavaria.

In the 14th century Salzburg received independence from Bavaria and stayed an independent nation until the beginning of the 19th century.

Climb the path to the castle...

by elizab

Climb the path to the castle overlooking the city. And eat sausages, even if you're a vegetarian. Drinking the local beer goes without saying, of course. The sweet, dense, moist brown bread served for breakfast each morning with sweet butter and homemade jam. I wish I could find a recipe!

the Alps

by easterntrekker

The very beautiful mountains surrounding Salzburg can be seen clearly from the castle hill.Salzburg is on the banks of the Salzach river, at the northern boundary of the Alps. The closest alpine peak – the 1972 m Untersberg – is only a few kilometres from the city centre.

Look Up The Ceiling...

by coceng

Look up the ceiling inside The Dom of Salzburg.
Nice paintings decorated upon the celing...

Austrians are very reserved people... more so in Salzburg than Vienna. Don't be loud or obnoxious and don't overwhelm a local by asking too many questions or trying to get too conversational. If the Austrian looks uncomfortable talking with you, stop. Also, if you're looking for English speakers, try the young Austrians first. They usually like to use the English and are more willing to try.
