    Stuff to bring

    by WrigleyTodd Written Jan 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: A small waste bag for carrying maps and money

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Small travel umbrella or two

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Pack your bags as light as possible and then fill the remaining space with toilet paper. Chances are your home toilet paper is nicer than the one on the road.

    Photo Equipment: Black and white film.

    Luggage and bags: Statisticaly it rains every other day in Salzburg.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Hot in summer, cold in winter. Rains during both seasons. Bring an umbrella.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Take whatever you want, but everything is available. Just don't need anything on Sundays because everything shuts down on Sundays.

    Photo Equipment: Bring your film, it's REALLy expensive to buy and develop film there. Do all that at home.

    Luggage and bags: There is nothing more than common sense that applies here. Remember that you may need to bring these bags on trains or buses.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Salzburg is RAINY. Bring a large umbrella and dry shoes.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: There is nothing you can buy at home that you can't buy here. Or only one thing- dryer sheets. If you want to avoid static cling, bring some from home. People here have never heard of them.
    Also, since tampons are measured by different standards here than in the US, American travelers may want to bring their own.

    Miscellaneous: If you're studying or living here long-term, I can't stress this enough. YOU CAN BUY IT ALL HERE. Don't waste space in your luggage with pillows, blankets, deodorant, shampoo, etc., like I did when I came here. Also, if you're going to study here, be advised that European standard paper is bigger than in the US, so it's best to buy that here, too.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Salzburg straddles a river, just like almost every other city in Europe, so you run the risk of having some chilly breezes running over the river. I was in Salzburg in April and it was really really cold and rainy. Bring that umbrella!

    Luggage and bags: Don't bring all your stuff, you can buy everything in a supermarket (mon to fr 8 - 19:00, sat 8 - 17:00) near your hotel, hostel or motorhome. If you choose a restaurant you'll live expensive.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: always bring an umbrella.

    What to take?

    by viddra Written May 1, 2010

    Miscellaneous: Since the weather is quite changeable and in spring goes from pleasant, warm to cold, rainy and wet, I advise you to take layers of clothing and umbrella as well.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring an umbrella. Salzburg is famous for its" string rain", a drenching rain that can occur at any time of year
