Flights to Salzburg

Salzburg is divided into two halves by the River Salzach. On the right of the river, shoppers flock to the historic Linzergasse street. On the left you’ll find the older section of the city, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Alpine charm and musical history

Fly to Salzburg with British Airways and start your break in the old town. 

Take a walk along the picturesque Getreidegasse to admire the traditional inns and shops and the beautiful ornamental signs decorating the street. Stop in at No. 9, the birthplace of Mozart, which is now a museum dedicated to the composer. Film lovers should head to the Mirabell Palace and gardens, one of the key filming locations for The Sound of Music.

If you have a head for heights, take a cable car up the nearby Untersberg mountain for spectacular views across Salzburg.

After a busy day of sightseeing, reward yourself with a locally brewed beer from one of the 11 breweries in and around the city. Book your holiday to Salzburg today.

Salzburg flight FAQs

A flight from London to Salzburg takes two hours.

Salzburg Airport is popular for its Christmas markets and ski breaks during the winter, so search for flights outside the peak season, which runs from December to February. Use our low fare finder to find the cheapest time to fly to Salzburg.

One of the easiest ways to keep costs down in Salzburg is to see as much of it as possible on foot. The city centre is small and easy to navigate. It's also one of Austria's most bike-friendly cities. Save money and stay hydrated by carrying a refillable bottle to use at one of the restored drinking fountains. They deliver pure, mountain-fresh water straight from the Alps. If you're planning to visit lots of paid-for attractions in a short time, you might want to invest in the Salzburg Card.

The airport is just four kilometers from the centre of Salzburg. A taxi or bus from Salzburg Airport to the city centre can take as little as 15 minutes.

To explore further afield and experience the beauty of this Alpine region, hire a car with British Airways. You'll get great benefits, round-the-clock customer support, with all mandatory charges included, and you'll collect Avios points on every rental.

Enjoy some of the beautiful locations that made the Sound of Music so iconic. Salzburg was a key location for much of the film and the home of the real von Trapp family. If that wasn't enough of a musical pedigree, the city is also closely linked with its most famous son, Mozart. Visitors can find his image almost everywhere, on everything from statues to chocolates.
