Preparing your trip to Salzburg: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Salzburg 1. The best time to visit the city is during warm months of a year. It’s quite cold in Salzburg in winter, and this fact can prevent you from enjoying various excursions and entertainments.
2. There is a well-developed network of trolleybuses and buses in the city. You can easily get to any street you’re interested in by using public transport.
3. Tickets for public transport can be purchased at any tobacco shop - here they are the cheapest.
4. The city’s taxi is quite inexpensive, but rates may rise in the evening. It is better to call to a special service and get a taxi to a restaurant or a hotel as "catching" a free taxi on the road will be quite difficult.
5. Bike remains a very popular vehicle among locals and tourists as by using it you can freely roam around the city. Top Bike is considered the best bike rental office. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

7. Local chocolate remains a popular souvenir that tourists usually bring from Salzburg. During the time of trade fairs you can also purchase beautiful decorations for your home.

8. In order to make your travel more convenient, you can buy a city map and a schedule of all public transport routes. As a rule, they are given for free in special kiosks at the train station.
9. Those travellers, who feel there are not enough attractions in Salzburg, are advised to make an excursion to Vienna. Each day numerous sightseeing buses leave Salzburg for the capital. You can also get to Vienna independently by train.
