Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear Gear: although Spring and Summer are the Best times to visit Salzburg, you must be prepared for any eventuality as even though spring weather in Salzburg is cold, you can experience unusual dry spell and even occasional spring rain showers that you can be walking around in a light coat one day or even without one as it can be really hot (not very unusual) then must have an umbrella or wearing a water repelland coat of jacket after a few hours as there can be rain showers going abruptly so better be prepared so as to bring the all weather gear like the water repellent or waterproof wear and umbrellas (the small foldable kind that you can snug in your bag) just to be sure so as not to spoil your tour around the city.
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 An umbrella is a must if your trip is in the summer.
The second day I was in Salzburg,the weather was like this:in the morning,it was very hot ;around 7 or8,it started to rain heavily and lasting to the following day.
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.
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.
