By Tour Bus to Salzburg

The Old Town of Salzburg is a popular pedestrian zone. With the two terminals in Paris-Lodron-Strasse and Nonntal, travellers by bus are only a few minutes walk away from the city center. Since June 2018, coaches have to be registered and time slots for drop-off and pick-up of guests need to be booked.

Online booking system for tour coaches

The City of Salzburg is reacting to the major increase in the tour bus market. In order to mitigate the related effects on waiting times as well as opportunities for boarding and alighting buses at the bus terminals, an online booking system for tour buses has been introduced in June 2018. Each tour bus will then be assigned time slots for arrival and guest pick-up at the terminals as well as a parking space based on availability. The primary goal of these access regulations is to improve management and control of the tourist flow.

Rules for Tour Buses visiting Salzburg

Two bus terminals – one on Paris-Lodron-Strasse and the other in Nonntal – may be used to allow passengers to get off and on tour buses. Tour buses have to be parked at the “Nord” (north) and “Süd” (south) as well as bus parking areas. The charges for parking are 10,00 EUR per hour (max. of 50,00 EUR per day). When booking a time slot in either one of the two terminals, the parking spot at the parking areas is included free of charge.
