  Lakes District view from the bus
by travelfrosch

If you don't have a car, a good option to explore the nearby Lakes District is to take the frequent and convenient post buses. Post buses depart the main bus station, or "ZOB" (adjacent to the hauptbahnhof/main train station), as well as several stops around Salzburg, including Mirabell Gardens. There is generally no need to reserve tickets ahead of time; simply purchase tickets with cash from the driver. Fares are decided by the Salzburg Transit Authority (SVV), so it is helpful to check their website. Fares are generally quite low, however (e.g., EUR 5.60 one-way from Salzburg to St Gilgen). Note also that if you plan to make a round-trip on the same day, the ticket you purchase will actually be a "Tageskarte," which will allow you to take the route an unlimited number of times during the day.
