Budgets in Europe: Salzburg

August 29, 2016

As part of our budgets in Europe series we’ve taken it in turns to focus in on different cities to see how they compare against each other on a budget level. This week we look at Salzburg in Austria, one of the UNESCO world heritage sites. As a real tourist attraction and beautifully historical city, the prices can be a little higher than elsewhere, but it’s worth it! Salzburg’s official currency is the Euro, so nothing too complicated to work out!

Salzburg is really a place to put on the bucket list, and with the airport close to the city centre, it is easy to get to. It’s a little pricier than other European destinations, but planning in advance can help keep the cost down!
