We strongly recommend to visit GI-Forum from July 5th to 8th as a perfect opportunity to get in touch with GI researchers and businesses.

Take advantage from booking your accommodation very soon, as Salzburg is quite crowded at that time of the year. We can recommend the International College, cheap and good  and only two bus stops or a 20 min walk from the University. Otherwise you can find hotels for all budgets in Salzburg.
