Family vacation in Salzburg

Information
Events

Salzburg is the ideal destination for a family city trip: the leisurely pace, short distances and wide range of entertainment options and children's events offer a many-faceted program for young and old.

 

Taking children to the museum
Even a visit to the museum can be an exciting experience in Salzburg. Children's workshops and tours of the museum for various age groups are available at the Museum of Modern Art on the Mönchsberg. Children can also take a supervised tour of the Old City including a visit to a metalsmith's shop and Mozart's Birthplace.

 

City explorers in Salzburg
Mozart's city has always been an ideal family destination with its trick fountains in Hellbrunn, Salzach ship service, wax museum, interesting art workshops and endless bike paths. Now the new "City Explorers in Salzburg" folder invites kids to embark on exciting explorations all year round.


Maybe start at the well with the legendary seahorses and walk to the lapping mill wheel of the Almkanal followed by refreshments at the ancient monastery bakery or look for the knight's grave at St. Peter's Church and see what St. Florian is holding in his hand at the Florian Fountain?


The walk designed for children and accompanying parents is an entertaining way to explore 13 special Sights in the Old City – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – authentically presented by Little Amadeus.

 

Discover Salzburg with Leo the Lion
The city guide and colouring book for children "Discover Salzburg - Leo the Lion Shows You The City" gives children an understanding of the City of Mozart and Sound of Music. Leo the Lion takes young explorers to the most important Sights in Salzburg. Children get to know personalities such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or Christian Doppler in an effortless, comical way. Leo the Lion takes them on a tour through the streets and across the squares in Salzburg und reveals fascinating facts about the history of Salzburg and its citizens.

With its numerous illustrations and background informations designed appropriately for children the creative book is very appealing for children of any age. "Discover Salzburg - Leo the Lion Shows You The City" is available in all Tourist Informations in Salzburg, in selected museum shops and book stores, and at Spar Supermarket in Getreidegasse. It can also be bookes online at www.bestofsalzburg.org The colouring book is written in English and German.

 

Destinations in the countryside
In addition to the exciting attractions described above, there are many other points of interest for the whole family in and around Salzburg including the Salt Mines in Bad Dürrnberg, the Museum of Natural History, the Marionette  Theater, the Toy Museum, the Fürst confectioner's shop, where the original Salzburg Mozartkugel was first made, the zoo and many other attractions.

 

Swimming
The city of Salzburg has three outdoor swimming pools that open on the first of May each year: the Volksgarten Pool, the Leopoldskron Pool and the outdoor pool in Alpenstrasse. The  Paracelsus Indoor Pool next to the Mirabell Gardens is open all year. The refreshing  Waldbad in Anif  and the Salzach Lake north of the city center are also popular swimming lakes.

 

Family-friendly hotels
A large number of family-friendly hotels offer every convenience parents and children could want from baby amenities to babysitting service. A hotel in the Old City is especially practical: after a short afternoon nap you can set off on another adventure.
