Excursion destinations in Salzburger Land

Salzburger Land captivates visitors with its variety of sights and attractions. The repertoire leaves nothing to be desired – the historic architecture, for example, includes the Hohensalzburg Fortress, Hohenwerfen Castle and the Hellbrunn Palace with its one-of-a-kind trick fountains. Who wouldn't want to be a prince or a princess for a day? The beautiful castles and palaces in Salzburger Land invite you to indulge in this dream. The offerings range from rustic knights festivals and an impressive birds of prey show to spectacular castle tours with a sneak peek at how the former lords and ladies lived. This is a special experience especially for families with children.

If you'd rather go on Mozart's trail, you can find interesting facts about this "Wunderkind" at his birthplace, including information on when he began to make music and how he came to discover his undying love of music. Get caught up in the thought that the sounds that first rang out in these rooms later went on to be played all around the world – even today. If you'd like to see breathtaking Salzburger Land on your summer holiday, you should definitely head to the Krimml Waterfalls. These roaring falls adorn the scenery in their own special way and are among the highest and most impressive waterfalls in Europe. You can even go on a joyride in Salzburger Land. Go for a spin on one of the most famous roads in the world, the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, and pay a visit to the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs Höhe on the Carinthian side. Be amazed at the Pasterze, one of the last glaciers in the Austrian Alps, and perhaps you'll even cross paths with a sweet marmot who lives at the foot of the glacier.

All attractions can be easily reached by public transport such as the bus or train. If you head towards Krimml, be sure to take a ride on the historic narrow-gauge railway. The steam train travels from Zell am See to Krimml and is a piece of history that you should not miss!

Our reception team will be happy to help if you have any questions and will gladly give you recommendations and suggestions.
