Additional tips for stress-free travel to the Salzburg Saalach Valley

during Peak Season

In peak season, we recommend that you avoid arriving between 12 and 5pm since traffic jams are possible during this time. Furthermore, we recommend that you avoid departing between 10am and 2pm as traffic jams are also possible at this time.

Winter Equipment for your Car
Be sure to have your car appropriately equipped for winter driving conditions. We recommend coming with good winter tires and snow chains, since snowfall can lead to difficult road conditions.
Transfer to the Airport
Please be aware that, during those departure times we mentioned above, delays may also occur for the transfer shuttle. So, here’s our tip: Allow ample time prior to your flight for the airport transfer. Your hosts will be more than happy to help you decide the ideal time to leave.
