An excursion through the SalzburgerLand

“A piece of paradise” – thus it was that author, Carl Zuckmayer, described his adopted homeland, the SalzburgerLand. If you know this region, you cannot fail to agree. This land is marked by an imposing combination of mountains and lakes, rivers and forests, pretty villages and prosperous cities. Every region – from the Salzburg Lake District to the Hohe Tauern National Park – has something unique to offer. Join us now on a short tour.

Beautiful countryside | The facts and figures are as attractive as they are impressive. With a population of only some 147,000, Salzburg has more than 4,000 cultural events per year and some 20 baroque churches. The city‘s silhouette is unparalleled: Hohensalzburg Fortress, the baroque Cathedral, the Franciscan and Collegiate Church at the foot of the Mönchsberg and the mighty, legendary Untersberg in the distance. A few of the many “musts” on a visit to Salzburg are described below. Splashing in the Water | Longing for the Lakes I 185 lakes adorn the City of Salzburg’s environs, the Salzkammergut region, the mountain valleys, and even the mountaintops themselves. The summer sun turns many of them into colourful playgrounds for all who long for fun in and around the water. Nature | Nature & Conservation I So that nature can continue to thrive unabated, many spots have set their focus squarely on conservation efforts. The Hohe Tauern National Park – the largest in all the Alps – is but one example.

Salzburg is a town described by many names. “City of Mozart” is probably its best known. The “Festival City” is its most prestigious. And for many it is the “Baroque City” – a city with a splendid past, once ruled by powerful archbishops. It is the city of top-notch cultural events and, at the same time, a city with an eye to the future, nestled in the heart of Europe. A stroll down its Getreidegasse, a famous shopping street decorated with the signs of various guilds, suffices to give you a sense of this city’s flair.

Europa-Sportregion Zell am See – Kaprun

With 13,500 beds and two million overnight stays per year, the Europa-Sportregion Zell am See - Kaprun is one of the most important tourism centres in Austria.

The right offer for everyone.

Summer delights between valleys and mountains: There is a lot of action in the Europa-Sportregion. When the temperatures rise, an entirely new summer world opens up among the mountains and valleys: there are all sorts of things to be discovered by land, by water and by air. Schmittenhöhe and Kitzsteinhorn offer ideal conditions for hikes through the untouched countryside. The professional mountain guides of the area know all the best paths like the back of their hands. Exploring the region by bike is another option for tourists. Twelve different tours offer the right choice for everyone, from a leisurely ride along the ‚Romantikweg‘ cycle track to the challenge of 80 kilometres of mountain roads up towards Grossglockner. Windsurfing, sailing, diving or water skiing: when the sun is burning hot, Lake Zell provides a very welcome cooling. Water sports experts hold special courses in which they teach interested tourists the right tricks and techniques. The internationally recognized sailing licence, which can be acquired in the Europa-Sportregion, enables its holders to sail always ‘close to the wind’. Rafting or kayaking is even more exciting than sailing. The rapid currents of the Salzach and Saalach Rivers guarantee for lots of fun. All those who like things to move a little more slowly, but still want to enjoy the cooling liquid, can go for a pleasure trip on the lake on one of the boat of ‚Schmittenhöhebahn AG‘. And if you would like to be the skipper of your own small craft, there are rowing or electric boats for hire. The high-ropes-course guarantees a fair amount of thrills when you balance along some narrow beams or climb ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ at a dizzy height. Canyoning is quite exciting, too. Gorges, water falls and rock pools turn this trip into a wet, but wonderful pleasure. A glider or hang glider flight as part of an ‘active holiday’ will provide glorious views from high above the idyllic towns of Zell am See and Kaprun. A game of golf, on the other hand, offers relaxation. The ball can either be holed in on the two renowned championship courses or, alternatively, across the loops and obstacles of one of the three miniature golf courses.
