  • What does the SalzburgerLand Card cost?
    You can find current prices here.

  • Is there a SalzburgerLand free ticket (for 6 or 12 days, F6 or F12) for people with disabilities or for the accompanying person?
    Please understand that we are unfortunately unable to provide any discounts or free tickets as part of the SalzburgerLand Card. However, individual attractions in SalzburgerLand do offer discount options. Please clarify this directly on site.

  • Children cards – free cards – how does it work?
    All children must be between the ages of 4 and 15.9 during the holiday period (4th birthday – 16th birthday at the time of the holiday). If you have 3 children of this age, then you have to buy a child ticket for 2 children, the third child gets a free ticket. If you have 4 children, you have to buy 2 tickets, the other two get free tickets, etc. There are no SL Cards for children under their 4th birthday.
    Example for 6 days tickets:
    1st child: € 48,-
    2nd child: € 48,-
    3rd child: 0,-
    4th child: 0,- etc.
  • Where can I get the SalzburgerLand Card?
    You can order the card directly online.
  • Does it make a difference whether I buy the card on the website of SalzburgerLand Tourismus GmbH or directly in the region (at a tourist board or hotel selling the digital SL Card)?
    No, the SL Card costs the same everywhere.
  • Can I book multiple SalzburgerLand Card at once?
    Yes! After completing the booking, you will receive an email with the links to your already personalised SalzburgerLand Cards, which you can forward to your family members and friends. 
  • What delivery time should I expect if I order the card online?
    None, as the card itself is digital, meaning that your smartphone becomes an entry ticket. Please keep in mind that it takes about 10 – 15 minutes to send the email and create the QR code.
    Alternatively, you can print out the card as a Print@Home ticket.
  • Is the SalzburgerLand Card transferable?
    No – the SalzburgerLand Cards are personalised.
  • Do I need to install an App to purchase the digital SL Card?
  • Will my data be used for advertising purposes?
  • Are the listed attractions free of charge?
    Yes. If you are in possession of a SalzburgerLand Card, entry to the partner companies is free of charge.
  • Is it possible to utilise the individual attractions more than once?
    That depends on the attractions. With a few exceptions (Großeckbahn, Sonnenbahn, Grünwaldkopfbahn, Katschberg-Aineck), mountain railways and thermal spas can only be visited once during the 6 or 12 days. Here you can find more informations.
  • Do I have to leave an attraction after the card expires?
    No. Registration happens on entry.
    Attention: please note the access duration of 3 or 4 hours for thermal baths.
  • Do I need to know the exact start date at the time of purchase?
    No – the SL Card is valid for 6 or 12 days from first use, and within the current summer season.
  • From when is the SalzburgerLand Card valid?
    For 6 or 12 days from the first use, depending upon the card. Within the current summer season.
  • Is the SalzburgerLand Card valid for 6 or 12 calendar days or is the usage calculated in hours?
    The validity of the SalzburgerLand Card automatically begins with the first use at an attraction and thus devalues the first day of use. For example, first use on Sunday (1:30 p.m.) – valid until Friday, 11:59 p.m. (6 calendar days).
    Please note that the use of the 24 hrs in the City of Salzburg cannot extend the 6 calendar days. If you would like to spend a day in the City of Salzburg, it makes sense to plan it at the beginning or during the first 5 days of your holiday.
    Important: First use at an attraction in the city of Salzburg happens on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m., last entry is possible on Wednesday at 11:29 a.m.
  • Can I use the SalzburgerLand Card immediately when booking online?
    Yes, the SalzburgerLand digital card can be used immediately. Validity automatically begins with the first use of the SalzburgerLand Card.
  • During which period is the SalzburgerLand Card valid?
    From 1st May until 5th November 2024.
  • Will new attractions be added to the SL Card in summer 2024?
    Yes, the Noriker Horse Museum Niedernsill and the Woody Bob roller bobsleigh run in Sankt Martin am Tennengebirge are looking forward to your visit! Both attractions can be visited once each with the SL Card as part of the valid 6 or 12-day SL Card.
  • Will there be restricted use of mountain lifts for SL Card users in summer 2024?
    No. Even in the months of July and August, all mountain railroads, that are partner companies of the SL Card, can be visited once each during the regular opening hours of the railroads with a valid SL Card.
  • Are all SL Card partner establishments open during the entire season (1st May – 5th November)?
    Please note that the opening hours of the service partners may change, especially cable cars and outdoor pools are partly in operation depending on the weather. In principle, limited operation must be expected during the season’s off-peak times (May and October). Please check the current conditions and possibilities before visiting an attraction. Thank you for your understanding!
  • Can I also visit the attractions in the city with the SalzburgerLand Card?
    With the SL Card you can visit either for 24 hrs the partner companies in the City of Salzburg OR you can enjoy a ride on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. From the first use of the SL Card in the City of Salzburg, a ride on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road is no longer possible, and vice versa. As with the other toll roads, which are partner companies of the SalzburgerLand Card, every car occupant must present a valid SL Card when using the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. All SL cards of the occupants are scanned. Tip: if you want to visit several attractions in the city of Salzburg, it makes more sense to buy a regular car ticket at the toll station.
  • The following selected destinations are NOT included in the SalzburgerLand Card and must be purchased separately:
    Eisriesenwelt Werfen
    TAUERN SPA Zell am See – Kaprun
    Schmittenhöhebahn Zell am See
    Schifffahrt am Zeller See
    Heiltherme Bad Vigaun
    Salzwelten Salzbergwerk
    Sommerrodelbahn Dürrnberg
    Hochgebirgsstauseen Kaprun
    Wolfgangsee Schifffahrt
  • What happens if I lose the card?
    As a digital ticket, the SalzburgerLand Card cannot be lost.
  • Can I still use the digital SalzburgerLand Card when my smartphone battery is empty?
    No. Therefore, please make sure that the battery of your smartphone is sufficiently charged.
  • Can I also use the SL Card over non-consecutive days?
    Yes, but only within its period of validity, between 6 or 12 days.
  • Is public transport included?
    Public buses are free to use during the 24 hrs in the City of Salzburg. On the other days or outside the City of Salzburg, public transport is unfortunately not part of the SL Card.
  • Can I also visit the attractions in the city with the SalzburgerLand Card?
    Upon purchase of the card, you will need to decide whether to use the card for 24 hrs in the city or to take a trip on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. If you choose the city, all museums etc in the city can be visited during a period of 24 hours within the validity of the SalzburgerLand Card.
  • Can I extend a purchased 6 day SL Card from 6 to 12 days during my stay?
  • Can I buy a SL Card for the next year?
    No, always only for the current year.
  • Is it allowed or free of charge to take dogs with you?
    Please clarify this with the partner company directly before visiting an attraction. This depends on the local conditions or on the size of the dog.
  • Can bikes/mountain bikes be carried free of charge on cable cars?
    Each cable car manages this differently – on some cable cars in SalzburgerLand it is free of charge, for others a ticket has to be purchased, while some other cable cars unfortunately do not offer this possibility. Please also check on the relevant website for up-to-date information before visiting a cable car.
  • I get sick during or just before the holiday – what can I do?
    Unfortunately, in the event of illness or accident, there is no legal right to reimbursement of costs. So, it makes sense not to buy the digital card too long before the start of your holiday. It is also not necessary. We ask for your understanding!
  • Can I also use the SalzburgerLand Card for skiing in winter?
    Unfortunately this is not possible. The SalzburgerLand Card is only valid in the summer season and can therefore not be used for skiing.
