Cheap Flights to Salzburg

See all departure points

Salzburg is a cultural landmark with beautifully preserved baroque architecture and a rich musical history. Many people take flights to Salzburg in July or August especially for the Salzburg Festival, a famous five-week classical music celebration that features many works by Mozart, the city’s most famous son. There are in fact around 4,000 artistic events every year, so there’s always something to attend when you get cheap flights to Salzburg.

The city is not too big and mostly walkable. You can get from Mirabell Palace to the old town in about 30 minutes, and with the rich architecture, fountains and statues surrounding you, you’ll enjoy the stroll even more. Pop into one of the museums dedicated to Salzburg’s musical past, or one of the many microbreweries around town. You should certainly spend an evening having dinner at St Peter’s, supposedly the oldest restaurant in Europe.

Being in the Alps, Salzburg has breathtaking mountainous scenery. The Hohensalzburg Fortress is reachable by funicular and rewards visitors with the best views in the city as well as its collection of antique weaponry and a concert hall. Travel two hours south and visit Hallstatt, a peaceful lakeside town that is nearly 3,000 years old with amazing scenery that includes a waterfall.

With a name that means “salt castle”, Salzburg and its surrounding area is fittingly home to various salt mines. A great one for families that is close to the city is Salzwelten Salzburg; it features wooden slides and trolley rides in the depths and there is a picnic area outside.
