Salzburg is at the hub of the European highway network: the A1 Vienna-Salzburg, the A8 Munich–Salzburg and the A10 Villach–Salzburg converge in Salzburg. Please remember to purchase a toll sticker if you are driving to Salzburg.
By Train: Salzburg Train Station is a 5 minutes' walk from Salzburg Congress. Here you can transfer to a trolley bus, regional bus, local train or suburban train. As a border station to Germany, Salzburg has outstanding Eurocity, Intercity and ICE connections. Salzburg's new suburban railroad connects the city with the surrounding towns. A dense network of trolley buses is also available.
Salzburg's main railway station, the Hauptbahnhof, is run by ÖBB-Personenverkehr AG (tel: 05 1717; website: www.oebb.at) and connects several major rail lines, with frequent east-west trains servicing Vienna, Munich, Innsbruck and Zürich and several trains heading south through the Alps into Italy. Trains arrive from Vienna (journey time -3 hours) and from Munich (journey time -2 hours) every 30 minutes from early in the morning until late at night. From the station, buses depart to various parts of the city, including the Old Town (the Altstadt), and there is a taxi stand right in front of the station entrance.
