Unfortunately it rains in Salzburg quite a lot! Take a look at our Salzburg Weather page that not only gives you an up to date forecast but also looks at what you can expect each month.

So what do you do if its raining?

One of the best things to do on a rainy day is to tour the Fortress (Hohensalzburg). There is lots to do inside the fortress and you should allow about 3 hours to tour the various rooms and have a good look around. Access is via the funicular railway from Kapitelplatz behind the Cathedral.

Another good standby is the Natural History Museum (Haus der Natur) but be aware it will be very busy on a rainy day.  It includes dinosaurs, an aquarium, reptile zoo and many more exhibits.

Mozart fans should visit the two museums, his birthplace  and the residence where he lived until he moved to Vienna.

There are lots of other museums in Salzburg – click on the Museums filter.

If you want to travel a bit further afield where it is not raining, then consider a trip to the Salzburg Lake District or Bertchesgaden.
