#SalzburgSurft - the WiFi Network

Since spring 2011 ist is possible to browse the world-wide web in Salzburg for free! At selected locations The city of Salzburg together with Tourismus Salzburg GmbH and Altstadt Marketing GmbH Salzburg is offering a free WiFi network in co-operation with various partners.

The free WiFi initiative #SalzburgSurft is constantly being extended. Salzburg’s free hotspots are heavily used by locals as well as by tourists. No matter if you use a computer, a tablet or a smart phone – a few clicks are enough to get online.


In the end of the year 2010, the city of Salzburg decided to provide free Internet access to all its visitors and citizens. In 2011 the first #SalzburgSurft hotspots opened in Mirabellpark. From then on, many other places have been added to the #SalzburgSurft hotspot network.

Open-Source Software

In order to provide a cost-effective solution, all used components of the #SalzburgSurft hotspot network are open source products.
