In the spring, the airline will be adding another aircraft to its fleet in the capital. “We want to offer the people of Berlin and Brandenburg as many direct connections as possible to interesting European cities. So we are particularly delighted we are now also flying to Austria from Berlin,” says Thomas Haagensen, Director of easyJet Germany.
Salzburg – well worth a visit any time of year
Whether you are visiting the festival in the summer or going skiing in the winter, Salzburg and its hinterland are an attractive destination throughout the year. At the birthplace and residence of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, visitors can walk in the footsteps of the world-famous composer. And the narrow streets and alleys of the old part of town, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site with splendid Baroque architecture, invite visitors to stroll and explore. Salzburg is also an interesting location for trade fairs and congresses. Fans of winter sports and nature can explore the city’s hinterland on skis or enjoy the tranquillity at one of the many lakes there.
