If you are driving to and in Salzburg, there are plenty of public parking lots in the city centre.
Just look for the large blue and white 'P' sign.
For ease and convenience, it's better to park your car on the left bank of the Salzach River. The Salzach is the river that runs through Salzburg, dividing the 'old town' from 'new town'.
Parking on the left bank/in the 'new town' means that you wont get caught up in small streets and pedestrianised zones in the 'old town'.
Finding a park is easier and you can enjoy the five minute stroll passing shops, cafes and side streets on your way to the 'old town'.
