Salzburg at Easter

Jump to last reply

What will be open Easter Sunday and Monday? We had hoped to do Hellbrun and the Salt mines along with the usual tourist things. Also does anyone have a personal guide they like. I'll, 70+ will be traveling with my 14 year old grandson. Thanks in advance

    Most Awesome!

    I am not an expert on Easter in Austria - sorry - but do check carefully with someone who is certain about the issue because there are often local and individual variations which change the "official" picture. I am pretty certain that the entire Easter weekend is a public holiday. This is from the Austrian tourism site for the UK;

    New Year's Day 1st January 1st January 1st January
    Epiphany 6th January 6th January 6th January

    National Holiday 1st May 1st May 1st May
    Ascension Day 17th May 9th May 29th May

    Immaculate Conception 8th December 8th December 8th December

    Boxing Day 26th December 26th December 26th December

    It may be in your best interest to email the Austrian or Salzburg tourist offices specific questions about the specific things you want to do and see.
