"Salzburger Land" Bundesland Salzburg by himalia11

Bundesland Salzburg Travel Guide: 3,609 reviews and 9,695 photos

Salzburg is both a town and a land (state) of Austria. This page is about the land, where we spend a week in 2011 with hiking and sightseeing. It?s a great region, with many gorges, waterfalls, castles and the high mountains of the Alps. We stayed in St Veit im Pongau (see my St Veit page) which was a nice starting point for our excursion. We also spend a few days in Salzburg which was a wonderful relaxing ending of our holidays.

In 2015, we stayed a week in Karpun, but had a bit bad luck with the weather. Still we could visit some more great places like the High Altitude Reservoirs above Kaprun, the Sigmund-Thun gorge, and Zell am See.

However staying there two weeks only is not really much for this region as there are so many attractions. There are several sights that I still would love to visit like the salt mines, the gorges and caves of the Saalachtal and the ice cave of the Eisriesenwelt. So I need to come back! :-)

For more information on the region and its attractions, you can visit the website www.salzburgerland.com. This website also has a nice Wiki (German only).
