Lovely Salzburg, located 155 mi/240 km west of Vienna, is Austria's premier tourist city—it's as popular with Austrians as it is with visitors from the rest of the world.
As a result, it can feel overrun with tourists during the summer high season—especially August. If you're going then, be prepared for long lines and dense crowds. (Don't even think about renting a car during this period—gridlock is the norm.) If you aren't put off by cold weather, a wintertime visit can be much more enjoyable, and we think the city is especially charming under a fresh blanket of snow.
