The Salzburg Card
With the Salzburg Card you can enter museums, ride cable cars, visit the fortress and more. Prices vary by season (May through October prices are a few Euros more). Cards can be purchased for 24, 48 or 72 hours use (three price points).
Is the card worth the price?
Yes! The Salzburg card gets you into museums and attractions for free AND includes the use of public transportation. If you visit the main sights in 24 hours which would include the Catacombs, Cathedrals, Palace, Fortress (Castle) via the Cable Car, Modern Art Museum and Cable Car (another one), Salzburg Museum, Domquartier – that would all add up to over 80 Euros! With the 24 hour card, at 24 Euros you can see all of the main sights and use the public transportation to quickly add some more sights to your list!
Where to buy: cards can be purchased at most hotels (just inquire at the front desk), the tourist office, or on-line.
