Finding hotel in Salzburg on the day - July

Hi,

We are travelling through Austria in July and are planning on driving through Salzburg and hopefully spending the day there before we go on to Hallstatt. We don't want to pre book all our hotels on the trip, so were wondering if it is generally possible to find accommodation on the day? I know it's a popular tourist destination and a busy time of the year.

It doesn't have to be fancy.

Thanks

Katie

It rather depends on when in July you're travelling. The world famous Salzburg festival begins on 18th July until the end of August. Hotels will be fully booked at that time. Maybe you'd consider staying a little way out of the city?

If you spend the day in Salzburg then take the road towards Bad Ischl en route to Hallstatt you will find many 'Zimmer Frei' signs at local farmhouses and small BnBs ---no problem.
