Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Experience Salzburg's Old Town and surroundings from a new perspective! The Salzach river-boat offers you a range of tours to choose from. Whether it's a romantic evening cruise, or a cruise and visit to the Palace of Hellbrunn and its facilities, this trip along the river offers fantastic views of the city of Salzburg and its many sights. In the evening, the landing station of the "Amadeus Salzburg" then transforms into a well-attended Cocktailbar the "Amadeus Salzach Island Bar" with a special flair.

Free with the Salzburg card so worth a trip down the river to get a different perspective. Picked up our tickets an hour before the cruise and came back 15 mins prior. There was already a queue formed which meant inside the boat had no window seats left. That was fine as we wanted to sit out the back anyway. No extra charge as others have found. Had blankets on all the chairs so nice and warm. A little harder to hear the commentary because of the noise of the engines. A pleasant 45 mins. If you were pushed for time you could skip it though.

We visited Salzburg in early July. Unfortunately, it rained non-stop for the 3 days that we spent there, but we were still determined to sight see as much as possible. Since we purchased the Salzburg Card (which is a great deal is you plan on visiting several attractions), we did the 40 min city cruise that was included in the card.

While we were happy to be away from the rain and rest our legs, the view from the boat was just OK. Since most of Salzburg's attractions are not along the river but inside the old town, you don't really get to see that much from the water - just a lot of fancy expensive houses. This is not a must attraction if you have limited time in Salzburg.

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.

Good experience to go on river cruise in Salzburg. Sitting in the open area of the ship and moving for around one hour in the river will become enjoyable when you listen the description of the city and river journey from the Captain of the cruise. Please confirm the timing of your cruise well before your journey as there is rush for the same and you may not get your desired time even if you have booked the cruise well before time.
