Snuggle up in Salzburg for Valentines

Created: 19 January 2015

Lovers looking to impress their special someone to mark a romantic occasion need look no further than Salzburg. Granted, the Baroque Austrian city is likely to be chilly in winter, but what better excuse to snuggle up for snowy walks, huddle together in cosy cafés and perhaps even hop on the ski bus that takes you from the city centre straight to the slopes of Flachau, a one-hour drive away? A four-night break by rail costs from £490 pp (two sharing) including all train travel (from London) and accommodation (one night in a two-berth sleeper compartment, three nights’ B&B in a centrally-located Salzburg hotel).
