This was my third trip to Salzburg. I loved my first two visits so much that I told my traveling companions that Salzburg will be the highlight of our European tour. However, Salzburg was far from the highlight. This beautiful, historical, musical city was instead a great disappointment. The locals in Salzburg were the rudest when compared to all the places that we visited. On two occasions, clerks actually lied to us about such things as availability and cost. What… Did they think we wouldn't figure out the correct answers? I sincerely hope that someone from an office of tourism in Salzburg reads this review and then enacts a plan to help Salzburg recover her reputation as a friendly and welcoming city. I will advise any European traveler that I know to avoid Salzburg. The frustration is not worth it. Go instead to München, Wien, or Praha.
