Getting Around Salzburg

The best way to get around Salzburg is on your own two feet! Seriously, the town is small and very easily covered on foot. It is possible to hire a bicycle and get around especially if you wanted to explore the areas around Salzburg. There are proper bike lanes to drive in, so it is perfectly safe. Biking within the town area may not be such a good idea.

The bus service is efficient and good. Bus passes are available and can be bought at vending machines at bus stops.

It is not advisable to use a car to get around the town. Besides prohibitive petrol costs, parking is a real problem. Also remember that most of the historic quarter is a pedestrian zone. Taxis are not easily available on the streets. If you need one you will have to get your hotel to call for one.
