About the station

It took six years but Salzburg Hbf has been transformed into a train station that not only has the wow factor, but is also comparatively easy to use.

From the main Südtiroler Platz entrance, by the trolleybus station (Salzburg doesn’t have a metro/U-Bahn), a wide passage way leads under the platforms/tracks/bahnsteigen.

The trains depart from an upper level, but there are easy to navigate stairs, escalators and lifts up to each platform/track/bahnsteig.

You can use the electronic indicators to find out which bahnsteige your train will be departing from.
If it isn’t yet listed yet on the electronic screens, use the yellow departure sheets.

Though don’t head to the platforms/bahnsteig too soon, you’re better off waiting for a train in one of the cafés on the lower Südtiroler Platz level (or in the 1st class lounge if you have a 1st class ticket/rail pass).

The platforms/bahnsteig are zoned and on each of them is an electronic display showing which carriage/coach of each train will be in a particular zone.

So if you have a reservation or will be travelling 1st class, you can use it to work out where to wait on the platform/track/bahnsteig for easy boarding.

Another electronic indicator on the platform will give details of the next train to depart.
