The Salzburger Land (the Austrian state of Salzburg) — with its primary river, the Salzach — lies between Oberosterreich (Upper Austria), Steiermark (Styria), Karnten (Carinthia), Tirol (Tyrol) and Bavaria (Germany). Running through the south are the main ranges of the Central Alps (incl. the Hohe Tauern mountains) with numerous 3,000m peaks. The Dachstein Massif and the Berchtesgaden Alps border the Salzburger Land to the east and north.
Salzburg is one of the smaller Austrian lands but it is one of the most important for the tourism industry. Hundreds and thousands of visitors from all over the world visit the "Small Paradise" of Salzburg throughout the year. Unspoilt countryside with unique natural attractions such as the Hohe Tauern National Park, the beauty of the "Baroque Jewel" of the old town centre of Salzburg and in the surrounding communities offer an enchanting variety. Successful efforts are being made in Salzburg to preserve nature as the basis for an existence. Salzburg as a holiday destination is equally popular in winter and summer.
Historically Salzburg is one of Austria’s youngest lands and is located at a "crossroads" between east and west, north and south. All interior transport routes towards the two western lands (Tyrol and Vorarlberg) lead through Salzburg. This gives more importance to the land than its physical land area within Austria (7,154.2 square kilometers, only 8.5% of the country) and population figures (app. 500,000) would normally indicate. Despite its small dimensions, Salzburg offers a multiplicity of character and a great variety of landscapes.
Endless skiing made in Austria, 860 km of pistes, 270 lifts and 25 resorts in five regions, all available on one lift pass and just a snowball’s throw from Salzburg. The area is named in honor of the city of Salzburg’s most famous son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This is skiing that brings music to the heart and puts a waltz in the step. Not only is it skiing on a grand scale, but there is no other snowsports region anywhere that is so easy to get to. Each area - Salzburger Sportwelt, Schladming-Dachstein, Gastein, Grossarltal and Hochkonig - is massive in its own right. It is almost impossible to ski them all on the same holiday - but you can try. It’s certainly possible to try several areas, as ski buses connect them with each other and with Salzburg.
