When to go
Salzburger Festspiele in July and August features classical music, opera and drama, while the Mozartwoche in January is another excuse to raid the composer’s back catalogue. Christmas markets around the Domplatz are a festive highlight, and winter also sees skiers descend on the mountains around the city.

Getting around
The Old Town is relatively compact and easily navigated on foot. Salzburg has an excellent cycling network, and scenic trails follow the Salzach river out of the city. Hire bikes from Top Bike, which has two branches (from £9 per day).

Getting there
From December, easyJet runs winter flights to Salzburg airport from Luton (from £57) while BA flies from Gatwick (from £110). Bus number 2 runs between the airport and Hauptbahnhof station in the town centre (£2).
