Both in summer and in winter – a holiday in Faistenau is an unforgettable experience. Thanks to its immediate proximity to the Lakes of the Salzkammergut, this town is the ideal starting point for day trips to the cooling waters. Numerous mountain walks are also waiting to be experienced.
- Lidaun Mountain: 2 hour ascent for sunny views
- Strubl Gorge a cool gorge with lush vegetation
- A Fairy-tale trail on the Faistauer Schafberg: fabulous local information along the way
- Then head up high in the Faistenau climbing park
- Faistenau is closely linked to its folk culture. Living traditions are on offer all year round. Such as the Faistenauer Jedermann in July and August. The performance about the death of the rich man in dialect, by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, under the 1000 year old lime-tree is also the symbol of this town.
When Mother Holle blesses the town with fresh snow, a winter holiday awaits action-seeking guests in Faistenau with skiing, cross-country skiing and snow tubing fun. (http://magazin.salzburgerland.com/snowtubing-faistenau/
