Salzburg

From ancient salt mines and Medieval castles to Austria’s highest peaks and biggest glaciers, the province of Salzburg offers something for everyone. Salzburg provides great skiing trips during the winter, but the beautiful lakes, hiking paths, and the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg city, among many other attractions, make the province a worthy visit at any time of year.

Remember Maria twirling and singing on an Alpine pasture in the famous movie "The Sound of Music"? It is SalzburgerLand that comes to mind almost immediately.

As the name suggests, the rich salt mines are central to Salzburg's identity and riches, since they allowed it to remain an independent state for quite a long time. The city of Salzburg, the Baroque capital, is the place for culture lovers. After all, Mozart was born here and lived here for many years. 

However, the countryside has an enjoyable bucolic charm all its own. On your tour of the region, we suggest to stop out in the lovely lake resort Zell am See or the breathtaking gorge and waterfall at Liechtensteinklamm. Not to mention Austria's highest waterfall in Krimml or the Giant Ice Caves.
