The holiday town of Faistenau is located in the Fuschlsee region of SalzburgerLand, ca. 20 kilometers from the festival city of Salzburg. It lies on a high plateau in the Osterhorn group at 786 meters above sea level.
Faistenau has 2900 residents and scores high points with its perfect setting - lakes, mountains, ski trails and the ski area are all close by, giving guests a sense of delightful seclusion and variety.
Summer and winter in Faistenau
During wintertime in Faistenau, you can go skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, sledding, and do much, much more. In summer, the surrounding mountains provide a perfect backdrop for extended walks through beautiful countryside. And after a strenuous hike or bike tour, you are certain to regain some, if not all of your strength, at one of our rustic alpine huts.
A special highlight is the 1,000-year-old linden tree, the focal point of the village square and the emblem of this town. This is also the reason why this town is often described as the region's luckiest place.
