Best day of week to visit Salzburg, avoid weekends?

Hi, we are in Slovenia on holiday at the moment, with a day trip to Salzburg planned in the next week or so. Is there a potentially quieter time to visit? Should we avoid weekends, or is that better as not so many business people?

Any advice please.

Thanks.

any day of the week except Sunday like most towns in Austria most shops do not open on Sundays, we were there recently (and weren't aware of this) .

If you don't want shops then Sunday is the best day to visit. It is the quietest day.

We were in Salzburg on a Friday and Saturday in June. There were a lot of people, but it wasn't like there were surging crowds making it difficult to get around or into the various sights or into the restaurants we were interested in.
