"WATCH WHERE YOU PARK IN..." Driving Tip by Rodel

Driving, Salzburg: 6 reviews and 2 photos

WATCH WHERE YOU PARK IN SALZBURG!!! Particularly in the Alstadt (Old Town). I parked on a sidestreet between several other native Salzburg vehicles. I even carefully checked for the presence of signs that might not permit me (and them) to park there. Since there were none to be found, I happily embarked on a six-hour walking tour. Imagine your sense of dread as you walk up to the spot where your precious little European rental car should be, to find no cars in sight because IT'S A BUS LANE IN WHICH YOU'VE PARKED!!! Luckily, the Polizei was nearby, who tracked down the vehicle sitting in a Park & Ride impound lot outside of the city. A cash advance and Mercedes cab ride later, we were on our way - a little embarrassed and $200 CAD poorer.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
