Hertz in Salzburg

Hertz Car Rental has several branches able to help anyone wanting to rent a car in Salzburg. Renting a car in Salzburg puts you in control of your break, freeing you from the restrictions of bus timetables, train times and the inevitable expense that comes with relying on taxis. The car is king when it comes to getting around ‘The Rome of the North’ – so named because of the bounty of sacred monuments within the city walls. With an extensive network of highways and roads, renting a car in Salzburg allows you to explore this exciting historic city to the full.

Birthplace of Mozart, Salzburg is at the heart of Austria’s cultural heritage, but also acts as home for many big businesses. As a result, it’s popular with both businessmen and tourists. There’s plenty to see and do in the city, whether it’s a visit to the house where Mozart was born, the magnificent grandeur of Hellbrunn Palace, or catching a concert in the musical circus that is the Salzburg Festival.

Driving and Parking in Salzburg

In order to rent a car in Salzburg, you must be at least 25 years old, unless you are paying an age differential surcharge, in which case you must be a minimum of 19 years of age. You will need to have held a full driver’s licence for one year or more, and this should be accompanied by an International Driving Permit (IDP). If you only have the paper part of your driving licence, you will also need to present your passport. For more information about driving regulations in Salzburg, take a look at our page about renting a car in Austria.

For those who’ve not driven in Salzburg before, please remember that the Austrians drive on the right and overtake on the left. The usual speed limit in urban areas is 50kmph, although some towns have lowered that to 30kmph.

The central part of Salzburg’s Old Town is a traffic-free zone. However, there are parking meters close to the city centre, giving you a chance to explore. Parking spaces are designated with blue lines – although it should be noted that all the parking zones in the centre are limited to three hours only. All meters accept coins, but only a few will accept cards. To make things easier, visitors can buy smart-cards from newsagents and shops.

You’ll also find underground car parks scattered across the city.

Driving in and around Salzburg

Key Routes

The 150 and 155 roads are the main routes in and out of the city center. Smaller roads branch of them, allowing you to explore the less commercial parts of Salzburg. If you’ve decided to rent a car in Salzburg, you should be sure to take a trip along the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, which takes you to the highest mountain Austria. While this is a bit of a trip, the view alone is worth it and renting a car in Salzburg means you’ll actually get to the summit – 8,200 feet above sea-level – without having to worry about climbing ropes or helmets.

In Salzburg itself, the roads are well maintained and light on traffic.

Major Highways

Passing straight through the city, the A10 and the A1 are the roads to take, should you wish to get to grips with the glorious Austrian scenery. These roads cover the areas to the north-east and the south of Salzburg.

However, should you want to travel east and cross the border into Germany, you’ll find the A8 is the road you want. Travel along it for just under two hours and you’ll find yourself in the historicity of Munich. Anyone considering this trip will need to remember their passports, as there are border-controls to pass through.
