Salzburg Card and admission fees for museums in Salzburg
Salzburg is not only beautiful from the outside but also very interesting from the inside. Visiting museums and attractions, one should be prepared for significant monetary expenses. Therefore, I recommend you inquire in advance about the places you are interested in to make a plan and calculate costs.

If you are going to spend an intensive day in Salzburg or come for 2-3 days, then I advise you to buy a tourist card, Salzburg Card. With its purchase, tickets to all the above attractions are included in the card price. You will also be able to use public transport for free. Almost all daily concerts will become 10% cheaper with a card for 48 and 72 hours; many hotels give a 10% discount. Furthermore, you enter most museums without waiting in line.
The price of the Salzburg Card:
Twenty-four hours – 30 euros and 15 euros for children (6-15y.o) from May 1 to October 31. The rest of the time is 27 euros and 13,50 euros for children
Forty-eight hours – 39 euros and 19,50 euros for children from May 1 to October 31. The rest of the time, 35 euros and 17,50 euros for children
Seventy-two hours – 45 euros and 22,50 euros for children from May 1 to October 31. The rest of the time, 40 euros and 20 children
The countdown to the validity of the Salzburg Card begins with the first visit. If you use public transport, you must fill out the card before boarding, entering the date, time, and your name in it with a pen.
The SALZBURG CARD is for sale in hotels and tourist information offices: at the railway station and Mozart square. Also, it is available online on Salzburg's tourism department website: www.salzburg.info.
When buying a Salzburg card, it is essential to consider the time of year! Not all attractions are accessible all year-round. Most tourist attractions have seasonal breaks for technical maintenance or financial revisions.
On my tours, I inform my guests about the location of the attractions, the duration of their visits, and opening hours, and I will help with an activity plan in Salzburg. In addition, for groups of 20 or more people, I can buy a discounted Salzburg Card.
