As night falls all of 2 Austrian corps, except their artillery, are on rout. They are also on the wrong side of the river Salach and are moving away from their supports. It will take at least two days to rally them . Their artillery are on the opposite bank of the river and in danger of being captured.

The battle has proved a complete success for 11 Bavarian corps. They have held Salzburg and are available to move north and threaten the flank of the enemy position at Mattsee.

The Austrians suffered 4 cavalry and 1 infantry casualties.

The Bavarians has suffered 2 cavalry and 1 infantry casualties.

These are heavy cavalry casualties, and will result in a reduction in the class of both cavalry brigades
