The Kolping Hostel has a heart for bikers

Not only Salzburg itself, but also the Kolping House has got a big heart for cyclists: not only does your accommodation offer bicycles for rent, but also a service station right in the building. If your bike needs a quick fix, lubricating oil or compressed air, you find help on the spot.

Since problems or breakdowns tend to come up while you are on your way through the town, you can find several service stations in different places. These are the following:
