Rich in culture and cuisine, Salzburg comes straight out of a storybook fantasy. History, scenery, and food combine to make a trip to Salzburg a satiating experience in more ways than one. Salzburg flights are always enhanced when you add Mozart and the "Sound of Music" to your playlist for the perfect soundtrack as you approach Austria's most musical city. Arriving at the Salzburg Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Airport (SZG), flights to Salzburg grant passengers exceptional views of the Alps, and you'll probably be able to pick out the city's famous clifftop fortress from above.
The most charming Salzburg hotels are those in the midst of the Altstadt—the city's historic center—which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, amongst the quaint stores and never-ending string of cafes, you'll find an ideal home base to explore all that Salzburg has to offer. The airport is about twenty minutes outside the city center, and while many hotels offer shuttles, it's easy to find a taxi into town or a rent a car right in the airport. You can also take the trolleybus line 2 to the train station to connect with the city's broader public transportation system, or the trolleybus line 10 straight to the city center–-they each stop at the airport every ten minutes. You can buy tickets in the airport terminal itself, but it's even easier to buy them on the bus. Whatever option you choose, sit back and relax, admiring the historic structures while this exciting city unfolds around you.
