"Dont miss the surroundings!" Salzburg Favorite Tip by Anjutka

Salzburg General: 225 reviews and 224 photos

  Mondsee with Drachenwand
by Anjutka

Favorite thing: When visiting Salzburg you should not miss the great surroundings. It is a great landscape with the Northern (limestone) Alps, picturesque mountains and numerous attractive lakes, partly right in the mountains like Koenigsee in the nearby Bavaria, the lakes of the Salzkammergut, often stretching partly into the lovely pre-Alpine hills. One fo my favourite lakes here is the Mondsee ("Moon Lake" in English, it has this name because it is moon-shaped) perfectly connecting the pre-Alpine hills with the limestone of the Northern Alps.
