Excursion Destinations in SalzburgerLand

Exciting excursions with the SalzburgerLand Card

 
 

Salzburg City

...a place you simply have to visit once in your life. Numerous tourist attractions await you, with a stroll along the famous Getreidegasse past the house where Mozart was born an absolute must. 

The Haus der Natur, the cathedral, Residenzplatz square and Hohensalzburg fortress are just a few of the many highlights. 

 

Sauschneid Sepp's "Heart for Wood"

If you are looking for a "special holiday souvenir", you should definitely pay a visit to Sepp Habersatter in his workshop.

Sepp does indeed have a true heart for all types of wood, seemingly able to create something special even out of the most unassuming piece of wood. "Sauschneid Sepp", which is the nickname of Josef Habersatter, is a passionate artist in wood, making bigger and smaller pieces (mainly) out of Swiss pine. Each is unique in its form, grain and appearance.

Liechtenstein Gorge in St. Johann im Pongau

Liechtenstein gorge lies in a small side valley only about 3 km from St. Johann i. Pg. Woven in legend, the gorge only truly became accessible to the general public after work carried out by the Pongau Alpine Association from 1875-1876.
You don't need any special gear to visit the gorge, though some of the wooden steps are a little slippery in parts and, since the sun never reaches some sections, it can also be rather cool.

Open from the beginning of May until mid October  
between 9 am and 5 pm.

Hellbrunn palace with its trick fountains

Hellbrunn palace and the world-famous trick fountains are quite unique and, in the 400 years since they were created, have barely changed at all. Amidst the trick fountains you will be able to have the same kind of fun once enjoyed by the man behind the original inspiration back in 1615, Salzburg archbishop Markus Sittikus, along with his guests.
Water plays the central role and causes plenty of motion, both amongst the visitors, naturally, as well as the original, water-powered mechanisms. The guided tours take you into a magical world of fountains, sculptures, mysterious grottoes, and often unpredictable spurts of water. Playful details make any visit here enjoyable and truly out of the ordinary.

Salzburg's Castles & Palaces

Four historical buildings in and around Salzburg invite curious visitors and culture-lovers to embark on an impressive journey through time back into our storied past.

  • Hohensalzburg Fortress
    This emblem of Salzburg is Europe's biggest castle fortification, dating back to the 11th century.
  • The Salzburg Residenz
    The former official seat of the Salzburg prince archbishops attests to their fame and splendor in earlier times.
  • Hohenwerfen Castle
    A daunting bastion high above the Salzach valley, with daily falconry shows given by the historic Salzburg State Falconer, as well as guided castle tours and the Museum of Falconry.
  • Mauterndorf Castle Adventures
    At Mauterndorf Castle, a former toll station and occasional summer residence of the Salzburg prince archbishops, the Middle Ages come to life.

Other Interesting Attractions (without the Card)

Hellbrunn Zoo

Living there are over 400 animals - from the heavy-weight African rhino to the European dwarf mouse. Also impressive are the free-flying griffon vultures.
And awaiting the youngest visitors is a petting zoo.

 

Dachstein Sky Walk and Ice Palace

Skywalk: Probably the most spectacular lookout platform anywhere in the Alps affords incomparable views of the surrounding mountain world, located right next to the summit terminal of the Dachstein cable car. Part of the floor is made out of glass - allowing you to gaze down below your feet at the steep, 250 m cliff face of the Hunerkogel. 

Ice Palace: A fascinating world of ice, light and sound in the heart of the glacier reveals itself to you just a 3-minute walk from the lift summit station. Marvel at ice sculptures with themes such as "Ice Age" or look straight into a natural glacial crevasse.

 

Lake Jägersee in Kleinarl

With its clear waters and surrounded by mountains, lake Jägersee is a popular excursion destination for young and old.
At Gasthof Jägersee, during the summer months you can rent out small rowing boats and navigate out across the lake.
