Salzburg Mini Guide

Salzburg is utterly amazing; no wonder it is a top European city break destination. You have simply got to hire a car in Salzburg to see all it has to offer. There really is something for everyone there, no matter what your interests. Salzburg is a hub for great skiing in the area with the largest network of pistes in Europe only a couple of miles outside Salzburg.

Many people go to Salzburg to take advantage of great Alpine skiing, but even if you are not a skier you may wish to request the optional extras of having snow tyres on your rental vehicle during the winter months (October to March). It is possible to drive to Salzburg from another ski haven – Munich in Germany – on the A8 autobahn, or to Austria’s capital Vienna on the A1.
