Set on the banks of the Salzach River, Salzburg is an eclectic blend of the traditional and the modern. Famous for its local talent - Mozart was born here - as well as cultural influence (the city inspired the beloved musical the Sound of Music), visitors can find everything from art to high street shopping along the winding cobbled streets of the old town. And with our flights taking less than two hours, Salzburg is the perfect escape for a weekend city break.

Like much of Austria, Salzburg experiences four seasons, with the summer months reaching temperatures between 25 and 30°C. In contrast, the winter months are colder, with temperatures below 10°C between November and April. Thanks to its close proximity to the Alps, Salzburg regularly experiences most of its rain during the summer months, so be sure to pack accordingly.
