Classy, rich in history and one of the world's great music venues, Salzburg is a culture lover's dream. It may be most famous for being the home of Mozart, but Salzburg offers more than classical music. There are more restaurants per person than any other European city, the gorgeous Mirabell Gardens and a sublime cathedral, not to mention lively nightlife and plenty of bars along the Rudolfskai.

Travel to Salzburg
Mozart Airport is the most likely entry point for international visitors and is a few kilometres from the city centre. Otherwise, the Hauptbahnhof is in the centre of town, around 10 minutes' walk from the Old Town. Buses get into the Südtirolerplatz stop, just outside the main train station. Local transport tends to run until around 1:00 a.m. every night, making taxis the best late night option.
Traveling around Salzburg
Salzburg has a superb bus and tram network, and tickets can either be bought from the drivers or at Trafik Kiosks. There's also an overground rail link to some suburbs (the S-Bahn) and taxis serve everywhere else. However, the centre of town is small enough to walk and also has excellent cycle lanes. To enjoy the architectural highlights of the city and have easy access to concert venues, the Old Town and areas around the river Salzach are easily the best places to stay.
