How we made the most of our card in Salzburg

We stayed in Salzburg for 3 nights and got a Salzburg card for 72 hours (40,00 Euro) per person. In fact, we actually used the Salzburg card at least 10 times for the listed tourist attractions as well as for our transportation!

To sum up, if we had not used the Salzburg card (72 hours – 40,00 EUR) we would have spent 120 EUR. That is a total saving of more than 50%! And honestly, sightseeing is much more comfortable if you can visit tourist attractions without calculating prices and avoiding queues!!! Also in this amount we have not calculated the travel using the card!
