salzburg for a day


We are planning to make a day trip to salzburg from grundslee..shd be arriving in salzburgcirca 10.am planning for a day trip..have read the posts on this forum..glad if i can get recommendations on the following:

(1) we are driving down from grundslee: whats the best place for a car park? any benefits from salzburg card for parking?

(2) wd b taking the SOM tour and keen to do it solo rather than a paid tour given advice on this forum..one of you has very kindly given a detailed guide. How much time shd one budget for the tour? (w skip far off places) Is much of the travel on foot? resume w salzburg card travel shd not b an issue

(3) assuming we have some post lunch time free, what are the views/priorities on the following (and time reqd)

- trick fountaion/hellbrun: (max 1.15 hr incl to-fro?)

- fortress brief visit (max 2 hrs)

- mozart residence (brief visit - 0.5 hrs)

do u think one can do all three - fortress wd primarily be for the views - we have sen even forts in england (unless u recommend this one to b extraordinary)

am I missing out anything (I guess residency, cemetry) which shd have higher priority?

any veg/indian restaurant along the itineraray?

Thanks again for yr time and advice..its great to have a forum such as this

I recommend the Mozart Wohnhaus (residence) rather than the Geburtsplatz (birthplace) if you are pressed for time. The Wohnhaus has an excellent audio guide and lots of interesting stuff to look at. I would suggest at least an hour and perhaps more. As you say, there are forts in many places but for me Salzburg is all about Mozart.

That's a good idea! Salzburg is much better than Vienna in terms of feasibility and sustainability. If you think you missed something in Salzburg, you can go back the next day and combine it with one of the worthwhile places along. By the way, what are your intentions in the area of Grundlsee and Salzkammergut?
