SalzburgerLand is the place people imagine when they think of Austria. It’s the Alpine meadows of The Sound of Music; it’s the snowy slopes of quick ski runs; it’s the pastoral walks around diamond-clear lakes; and it’s the land that inspired Mozart’s divine melodies.

SalzburgerLand is 7,200 square kilometres of Europe’s most beautiful Alpine landscapes. Soaring peaks dominate its skyline and expansive pastures are saturated with flowers. It’s a region that celebrates local ingredients in its cuisine and that welcomes guests with world-renowned hospitality. Among the mountains and quaint villages are coffee shops, Alpine huts, fisheries, dairy farms, beer breweries and award-winning restaurants. All these elements combine to attract hikers and cyclists, stand-up paddleboarders and kayakers, climbers, mountaineers, families and those simply in search of rest and relaxation surrounded by world-class views. In this guide, we take a look and some of the spectacular hiking and biking adventure opportunities within the SalzburgerLand regions.
