things to do in salzburg in winter

Covered with snow Salzburg looks really beautiful in the winter. Here a some great ideas about some fun staff you can you when it’s cold and snowy outside:

Ice skating

By taking bus number 6, 7 or 10 you’ll get to the ice skating arena near Salzburg Volksgarten. It opens in October and offers two different ice skating areas, one inside and the other one outside. Skates can be borrowed for some euros. You didn’t do ice skating before? Don’t matter, just try it it’s easy to learn and makes some fun.

Christmas markets

If you’re in Salzburg during christmas time, you’ll be really luky. This is a great time for walking through the old city and enjoying the lovely christmas decoration and play of lights. Salzburg offers some different christmas markets locals argue which one ist the best. My favorite one is the „Waldklang“ festival in Anif, because it’s a mix of art, light and christmas.
