Salzburg-what to see? Where to sleep? Where to eat?
Is it correct that the Bayern ticket is valid for travel to Salzburg ??
Can it be bought in Salzburg ??
We are a group of 12 traveling to Salzburg in mid September. We have only 3 days in Salzburg. We plan to spend the 1st day exploring Salzburg. Day 2 :we plan to do the ice caves and the Hitlers nest. I wanted to know if there are any good tours which could combine both or any tour company that can customise a tour for us. Also wanted to know if we could just take cars and drive up and do both. Day 3 we plan to do the sound of music tour.
Any suggestions how to go about this or any more ideas are welcome.
We will be in Salzburg for 2 1/2 days in Sept with three Children, ages 10, 9 & 3. Any suggestions or must see/do's appreciated. We had hoped to do a salt mine tour but understand that it's not something we can take youngest on.
Feels like I should open another thread for this topic.
Can anyone recommend a restaurant where we (group of 8) can get more or less authentic austrian food (or: local food)? I'd prefer a place where local people choose to go, as well, if that's possible. Doesn't have to be fancy, at all...
Again I've heard to stay away from old town and rather look for a place on the other side of the Salzach. Seems like a lot of people think of Old Town as a tourist 'trap' and its wise to cross the river and search there....and if there are any nice bars in the same area which can accomodate 8 people, that would be great, too (but it's not a must).
Thanks a lot in advance and thanks for the help in my other thread, as well. :)
I'll be in Salzburg for a bachelor party next weekend am wondering which area is best to stay in? Found a hotel right at the central train station and one on the other side of the river and the Moenchsberg. Can someone give me some advice on which location is better in terms of public transport, getting to know the city a bit, seeing the older parts of town, etc etc?
Would be highly appreciated. :)

We are traveling to Salzburg from CK and have been trying to figure out pricing and schedules. From what I can find, it seems the private or semi private "Bean Shuttle" is our quickest and most economical option.
Has anyone used their services? The pre-booked price is 30 Euros per seat or 800 CZK. Their times seem ideal for us as well. If anyone could offer advice or suggestions please? Thank you in advance, Homer (and Ed)
I know it is probably kitsch, but I was going to stay in the Trapp hotel in Salzburg when I visit in September, is it far from the city centre ? Don't mind walking or cycling into the centre.
We are coming to Salzburg and will continue on to Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, back up through Bosnia & Herzegovina, Hungary and finishing up in Vienna.
Does anyone know if there is a problem with driving a car in through any of these borders?
We've heard a lot of conflicting reports due to higher theft dangers, etc.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Hi! I'm going to Salzburg last week of july, and I need somewhere cheap to sleep. I have found a camping which is 8 km far from Salzburg, near Koppl, it's cheap and I like it. But I have a problem, because I have no car (not driving license), and I will move in public transport. Can anyone please tell me if there is a bus line between Koppl and Salzburg?
My wife and I are planning to visit Salzburg from 4th to 7th of July and travel to Budapest from there. We would also like to travel to Gmunden to visit the Thomas Bernhard Haus.
I would like to know the following information about the the best way to travel to Gmunden and Budapest in the following two scenarios. We are on a budget and cannot afford a taxi.
1) We travel to Gmunden from Salzburg on Sunday morning and stay at Gmunden for a night and travel to Budapest from there on Monday morning. Are there buses? Is this too compliacted?
2) We make a day trip to Gmunden on Saturday and travel to Budapest on Monday from Salzburg.
Also, do you have any information if Thomas Bernhard Haus is open on Sunday?
Thank you so much.
What time is Mass celebrated at Saint Peter's Cathedral Salzburg, Austria?
What time is Mass celebrated?
I have 3-4 days to spend in Salzburg.
1. Any suggestions on reasonably priced hotels near the main train station? I want to be close to transportation (train/busses)
2. I was planning on doing the Hohenwefen fortress, mirabell gardens, mozart house, schools leopldskron. can i get to all of these with public transportation or should i buy a pass on those hop on hop off tourist busses? I want to be as economical as possible. Also, with these attractions in mind, is it worth for me to buy that pass everyone says allows free access to some of the attractions?
3. I want to visit the Werfen ice caves. How far is this? Should I take a day tour or should I go by public transportation on my own?
4. Hallstatt- by bus or train? or should I take a tour there?
5. Having all these things in mind, should I go back to Salzburg or should I stay in Werfen/Hallstatt? I am leaving to Budapest after Salzburg. Hotels seem to be very expensive in Salzburg.
I don't want to do the typical tourist tours. I want to take a run early in the morning around town, hike, bike around the city, take a dip on a lake if possible, have a picnic somewhere around nature. Any suggestions?!
If I have 4 hours from 8am to 12pm to visit the Sound of Music locations in Salzburg, can anyone advise me on the draft itinerary, where I can forward to my Van driver for them to check out the locations in advance.
Thanks & Regards Alvin
