By Tour Bus to Salzburg

The Old Town of Salzburg is a popular pedestrian zone. With the two terminals in Paris-Lordon-Strasse and Nonntal, travellers by bus are only a few minutes walk away from the city center. As of June 2018, Salzburg will be operating a new online booking system for tour coaches.

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, as of April 2018 Tourismus Salzburg GmbH will be introducing an online booking system for tour buses. 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 (closed from 19th February to June 2018) 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 4,00 EUR per hour (max. of 24,00 EUR per day).
