British Airways' flights to Salzburg touch down at Salzburg Airport, two and a half miles west of Salzburg's city centre. When your flight lands at Salzburg Airport, take a bus to central Salzburg where alpine views and a brisk walk along the banks of the River Salzach will blow away the cobwebs. After your flight, let your Salzburg trip unfold on Baroque Residenzplatz square, where Salzburg's powder-wigged archbishops once strolled. Or pop into Salzburg's oldest coffee house, early 18th-century Caf Tomaselli, for a slice of its famous crisp apple strudel.
After your flight to Salzburg, take bus number 2 to Salzburg's Hauptbahnhof (Main Train Station). Buses leave roughly every ten minutes from 5.30am to 11pm. From the station it's a 15-minute walk or short bus ride to Salzburg's Altstadt (Old Town). If you're in a hurry when your flights land in Salzburg, take a metered taxi from outside Flight Arrivals. The journey into central Salzburg takes 20-30 minutes; allow extra time during rush hour.
Enjoy the relaxed pace of Salzburg's cobbled Baroque Altstadt after your flight to Salzburg. Get up early for panoramic views of Salzburg without the crowds at 900-year-old Hohensalzburg Fortress. Wander around Baroque Residenzplatz square or whistle well-known tunes on a The Sound of Music bicycle tour. After dark, take in a Mozart concert or sample traditional schnitzel steak. Before catching return flights from Salzburg, pick up souvenir Mozart T-shirts on Getreidegasse or nougat-filled Mozartkugel chocolates that will leave you with a taste of Salzburg on your flight home.
