A Region Full of Contrasts

In Saalfelden Leogang in SalzburgerLand, your days will be full of surprises. You might arrive and look up at the mountains in awe, then find yourself tearing down those same mountains on a mountain bike.

Today, you can visit this special place and, if you’re lucky, have a chat with the current hermit (Stan Vanuytrecht from Belgium).
