Got this for free with the Salzburg card but it usually costs €15. The river was further away from all sites than the pavements and because the centre is so small it would have just been better to simply walk about. Not really worth it...More

After hours of walking round museum and the old city streets, this boat cruise, although short in duration, provides a pleasant seated activity and gives one a different aspect of Salzburg and the surrounding mountains. The boat is modern, specially designed to combat the strong...More

The view of snow-capped mountains was awesome from the boat, in contrast with the old buildings along the river.

We always like to take a cruise wherever available and the Salzach Cruise was not a disappointment. The guided tour explains the different parts of the small city. It was relaxing, enjoyable ride with a nice little marry-go-round at the end by our awesome captain.

The tour we took was a one-hour tour up the river and then back down, so I'm sorry I don't know about getting discounts on the other tours. Sorry!
