The Nord-Sam campsite is named after the street where it is located which is very conveniently located for visiting Salzburg. At two minutes walk from the campsite there is a bus stop which a regular service into the city centre - a ten minute journey and there are four buses an hour during the day! But of course this is bike country - that is the welcome sign you see as you cross the border from Germany - so why not ride into town. For the fit, there is of course the option of walking and that will take around 30 minutes or so!
Nord Sam is a family run campsite with a friendly welcome and is now in its third generation. The administration building houses a small shop and cafeteria where one can sit inside or out on the terrace. Plots are very private being surrounded by hedges, all with electrical hook up. The sanitary facilities are located next to the administration building - which is where the owners also live.
There is a swimming pool which is used in summer. Other facilities include a fenced off children's playground and bike rental - what else would you expect from bike country?
Access to the site is relatively easy for those travelling by motorway as the exit is only 700 metres from the campsite.
Salzburg is not real. It is like a nineteenth century fairy story referring to another age. This is the central Europe of fairy stories and old films. Dominated by Prince Bishops for hundreds of years, their decadence has given us today the amazing castle overlooking the town, the cathedral quarter which is now a UNESCO protected heritage site, the palace of Helbrunn with its amazing trick fountains. Nature has given us the mountains which surround the city - but you can read all about that in other parts of this page!
