...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.
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 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 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.

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.
