The best places to visit in the city

World Heritage Site, bithplace of Mozart, filming location for the Sound of Music, centre of high culture with the annual Salzburg Festival and spacious in between. Salzburg and the surrounding area are well worth a visit in any season. 

The 14-kilometer section between Golling and Werfen, featuring a total of 5 tunnel structures and known as the "oldest motorway tunnel chain in Austria," no longer meets the necessary safety standards. As previously communicated through various media portals, social media channels, and more, extensive renovation work will take place here until June 2025.  

As a result, the A10 in this section will be reduced to a single lane. To ensure a relatively traffic-free journey, we recommend the following alternative routes:  

  • Coming from the East (Vienna, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary ...) 
    Alternative route via A9 - Liezen - Ennstal Bundesstra√üe towards Radstadt/Altenmarkt

If you plan to embark on a trip to the city of Salzburg from Piesendorf Niedernsill, there are no obstacles if you take the alternative route via the "small German corner - kleines Deutsches Eck": 

  • Piesendorf Niedernsill - Zell am See - Saalfelden - Lofer - Schneizlreuth (D) - Bad Reichenhall (D) - Salzburg

Additionally, we highly recommend considering public transportation as a convenient alternative. The attractive offers and packages for traveling to the SalzburgerLand region by public transport provide an excellent option to reduce reliance on your car.  

Stay informed and check the traffic situation before your departure and return journey.
