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 of 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. You enter most museums without waiting in line.
The price of the Salzburg Card:
24 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

The countdown to the validity of the Salzburg Card begins with the first visit. If you use public transport, then you need to fill out the card before boarding, entering the date, time, and your name in it with a pen.
The SALZBURG CARD is found for sale in hotels and tourist information offices: at the railway station and Mozart square. Also, it is available online on the website of Salzburg´s tourism department www.salzburg.info
Buying a Salzburg card, it is important to take into account 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, opening hours, and will help with an activity plan in Salzburg. For groups of 20 or more people, I have the opportunity to buy a discounted Salzburg Card.
