What to Do if its Raining

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 Kapitalplatz 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 dinasaurs, 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 – see the list here

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


What to Do in Winter

Winter in Salzburg can be a magical place with snow almost always expected in the city at some point. Exactly when varies from year to year but you may be lucky and have snow whilst you are visiting the Christmas Markets.

Be aware that it can be very cold in Salzburg so dress accordingly. In the evenings it can get down to -15c.  Check out our guide to Salzburg Weather that gives an idea of the weather throughout the year.

During late November to Christmas there are several Christmas Markets in Salzburg:-

  • Residenzplatz – the main Christmas Market
  • Stern – A lovely market in the squares outside Sternbrau
  • Fortress – A market in the courtyard of the Hohensalzburg.
  • Mirabell  – A small market just outside the beautiful Mirabell Gardens

A trip to the Christmas Market at Hellbrunn is really worth it but expect to pay an entrance fee at the weekends.

The Fortress and all of the museums are open as usual throughout the winter and provide ample things to do. There are also lots of cafes in the City where you can have a hot chocolate (with rum is delicious).

If you decide to go up the Untersberg mountain – please be aware that it can be very dangerous if you wander from the designated pathe.
