Tips for to-dos in Salzburg in summer – 2024

If you’re still looking for cool to-dos in spring and summer, you should definitely take a trip to the famous Mozart city. Because: Salzburg has so many excursion options to offer and offers you breathtaking views of vast mountain landscapes, venerable buildings and fine city life as you stroll through the city. In short: culture, nature and discovery tours not only rhyme, but also accompany each other every step of the way in Salzburg.

And because everything is more beautiful and romantic during the warm season, grab your favorite person for a trip to the Salzach and enjoy time for two. We’ll tell you where the finest treats, the greatest events, the most interesting museums and the coolest excursions are waiting for you.

Speaking of getting there: Perfectly located, Salzburg is an ideal hub so centrally located that, no matter which end of Austria you come from, it will never take you more than four hours to get there by public transport. You don’t need a car in the old town itself or on your excursions around it. The money you save on fuel costs, your nerves on the highway and the environment you save will thank you.

Cultural enjoyment: Visit the city’s museums!

A visit to a museum is a must on city trips. We recommend: the Museum of Modernism. The exhibition house not only houses international art treasures of modern times, but is also a wonderful excursion destination, located high on the Mönchsberg. It’s best to hike up the nice stairs in the Toscaninihof near the festival hall and after 15 minutes you’ll be in front of the museum. Alternatively, you can also use the Mönchsberg elevator, which takes you to the museum in 30 seconds. In any case, you will be rewarded with a wonderful view of the city up there.

In 2024, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg will celebrate its 20th anniversary. Free entry for those under 19. All other prices and tickets can be found here. Opening hours: TUE–SUN

After your journey of discovery through the museum, where you can marvel at contemporary and modern art exhibits and visit temporary exhibitions, we recommend that you extend your trip across the city a little. After all, the city’s next landmark is not far away and is already sweetening your view on the horizon: the Hohensalzburg Fortress. It’s best to hike over the Mönchsberg in a relaxed manner for a good 20 minutes and enjoy the best views of the old town.

By the way, you can visit many other treasuries in Salzburg and marvel at art from a wide variety of eras:

In the DomQuartier Salzburg you walk through the state rooms and experience the 1,300-year-old history of rule, art, music and architecture. By the way, this museum is also celebrating its 10th birthday this year. You can attend great anniversary events in a celebratory setting. In 2024 you will also be celebrating your 100th anniversary with the Folklore Museum with masks and traditional costumes as well as in the House of Nature surrounded by fish, lizards, snakes and the like. A visit to the open-air museum in the Untersberg Nature Park near Salzburg is always worth it – especially at the beginning of June at the big anniversary festival round 40s.

Explore Salzburg in a new way

You want to explore Salzburg on foot, but would you like to discover a few hidden corners of the city? You can also explore Mozart’s city on exciting alternative routes and get to places that you definitely wouldn’t have found on a normal walk through the city. You walk in the footsteps of Salzburg’s famous composer on the Mozart city hiking trail. On the way you will pass interesting spots such as his original baptismal font or the graves of various family members. On the beer culture hiking trail you will immerse yourself in the city’s brewery history and learn everything about the Salzburg beer world.

In the surrounding area, Anthering, Elixhausen, Elsbethen, Eugendorf, Grödig, Großgmain, Hallwang and Wals-Siezenheim await you. Here you have the opportunity to leisurely hike the areas or catch panoramic views on a challenging mountain tour. You can visit museums and churches, shop for traditional delicacies at farmers’ markets and take in many more moments of fresh air.

Go on a bike ride to get more exercise

You can really explore the bike-friendly city on a bike. The cycle path network winds over 180 kilometers through the entire city including the surrounding area. On the way you can explore all the excursion destinations on the saddle along the Salzach, in the parks and avenues. What’s good for us: In addition to bike-friendly hotels, other accommodations offer practical rental bikes and there are small repair stations and bike boxes for safe parking scattered throughout the city next to the bike paths. If Mozart had had a bicycle, he would have cruised around his hometown on it.

Tip for a great bike tour: Along the beautiful Hellbrunner Allee, Salzburg’s green vein, you can reach Hellbrunn Palace and its famous water features by e-bike, mountain bike, racing bike or another two-wheeled vehicle.

Tips for a pleasure bike tour to the north of Salzburg:

26 km gentle cycle tour from the Marko-Feingold-Steg on the Salzach via the Ischler Trasse to Eugendorf Stop at the Holznerwirt and sip a summer spritz. On the way back via the Ischler Trasse you pedal in Eugendorf and roll back to the city of Salzburg

Want a change? Off to the theater!

If the weather puts a damper on your excursion plans, Salzburg has ideal indoor alternatives to offer. One of them: the puppet theater. If you think that the puppet theater is only for the little ones, let us clarify: In addition to fairy tale plays, the miniature opera house has been staging pieces such as real operas for over a hundred years. The wooden “employees” perform dance, singing and acting by Mozart, Strauss, Tchaikovsky and co, resulting in around 160 performances a year. There is definitely a piece that will be good for you. And because it’s so beautiful there, it’s not for nothing that the miniature opera house is considered a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage.
