Worth a trip

Get to know the Salzburger Land in Austria with all its facets

In just a few minutes by car you can reach all these world-famous destinations.

The Rossbrand (1,768m) is rightly one of the most beautiful viewing mountains in the Eastern Alps, because from the summit there is a 360° panorama on almost 150 striking Alpine peaks: from the Dachstein in the north over the Tennen and Hagen mountains and Grossglockner to the Radstädter and Schladminger Tauern – the splendor of the Alps as far as the eye can see.

Radstadt, 70 kilometres south of the city of Salzburg, is surrounded by high mountains and a breathtaking natural setting. Due to its central location, the 5,000-inhabitant town is not only an ideal starting point for hikers and cyclists, but also impresses with its historical flair.

Ennobled as a World Heritage Site, the baroque old town with its narrow streets and hidden courtyards presents itself as a baroque magic world. Lovingly designed shops invite you to shop, historic cafés for a leisurely rest

The largest ice cave on earth is only 30km from Radstadt. Discover a wonder of nature. In the huge ice rinks you can admire the most powerful ice figures in the world. In total, the cave system extends over about 42km, some of which is open to the public during guided tours.

The 900-year-old Hohenwerfen fortress towers high above the Salzachtal Valley, between the Tennen and Hagen mountains.

Former fortifications from the 11th century

Experience-hungry and culture-loving people get their money’s worth in Hohenwerfen. Visitors can expect a variety of entertainment and offer. From castle tours with a weapons exhibition, a stylish castle tavern, a knight’s shop over the historic Landesfalkenhof with daily flight demonstrations,
the 1st Austrian State Falcon Museum to regularly changing special exhibitions.

Fans of rural architecture and lovers of bygone eras will find their Eldorado here. 60 original rural buildings from the Salzburger Land can be visited in the open air. The buildings were dismantled, renovated and rebuilt faithfully at their original locations. Distance a short distance an hour drive.

A trip to the Kaprun high mountain reservoirs is a fascinating trip to the mountains. The fresh air, the green of the alpine pastures, the turquoise water of the reservoirs and the glaciers of the Hohe Tauern are intense impressions. The ascent to the Kaprun mountain reservoirs starts at the Kesselfall Alpine House in the rear Kaprun valley. Modern buses take you via the Lärchwand-Straße, which runs mostly in a natural stone tunnel, to the Lärchwand inclined elevator. Between the Mooserboden and the Drossen dam lies the “Experience World of Electricity and Ice”, where you can find out about the world of glaciers and the history of power plant construction. During one of the ongoing dam tours, you will learn more about how water is used to generate the “white gold”, the electricity.

The Grossglockner, the highest mountain in Austria with 3798 meters, forms the border between the federal states of Salzburg, East Tyrol and Carinthia and is an important part of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The High Alpine Road, opened in 1935, is an experience for everyone.

This excursion destination is an experience especially for families: with the mine railway you go into the tunnels of the show mine. In the interior of the mountain you slide down on long miner’s slides to an idyllic salt lake. Distance from Radstadt about 40 minutes by car.

The Krimml waterfalls are the fifth highest in the world at 380m and at the same time the largest in Europe. In 3 fall steps (140m / 100m / 140m) the water shoots with enormous force into the depths. An absolutely worth seeing natural spectacle, in a unique landscape, for the whole family.
