Anyone who is planning a holiday in SalzburgerLand can hardly do without the SalzburgerLand Card. With this guest card, you get free or discounted access to about 190 attractions in the entire province and the city for 6 or 12 days.
The perfect holiday week with the SalzburgerLand Card
Take a glance at the hard facts and many advantages of the SalzburgerLand Card. To get started, we’ll give you a few holiday ideas, or as we would call it: a perfect week in SalzburgerLand!
Monday – arrival
After a hopefully stress-free journey, you have arrived at your accommodation, are warmly welcomed and get settled. Since it is already afternoon, take a tour around your holiday spot and get orientated. If you have not yet bought the SalzburgerLand Card, your host will gladly help you. After that, traditional dishes are on the dinner table, and the holiday has started just right with a relaxed first night in SalzburgerLand.
Tuesday – relaxed day at Fuschlsee
The Salzburg Lake District in the north of the province features pure swimming fun. The many swimming beaches are also not too overcrowded on the hottest days of the year and offer nice additional features and services. For instance, the swimming area at Fuschl provides a free entrance. There is no chance you’ll get bored!
Wednesday – off to the city of Salzburg
Today, the city of Salzburg is on the agenda. A weekday is better suited than the weekend. In the morning, you set off on a walk through the picturesque Old Town. Would you like to stroll in the baroque DomQuartier (Cathedral Quarter) for a few hours, or would you prefer visiting the family-friendly House of Nature? Around noon, you’ll ascend up the hillside to the Hohensalzburg Fortress with the Festungsbahn (fortress funicular), and in addition to the fortress you can also enjoy the impressive panorama of the Berchtesgaden Alps and the Tennen Mountains. After lunch, you’ll board a bus and travel to Hellbrunn Palace, which ensures cooling fun with its trick fountains. How would you like to enjoy a walk through the adjacent zoo, or end the evening with a discovery tour over the Hellbrunn cliffs? As an alternative, during the Salzburg Festival season, you can attend an open-air opera production behind the cathedral during the Siemens Festival Nights.
Thursday – Europe’s highest waterfalls
After so many city highlights it’s time to go back to nature: more precisely, it’s time to visit the Krimml Waterfalls which already impress on paper with a waterfall drop of 385 metres. But then, quite a bit more awaits you after arriving there. A roughly 4 km long trail leads right up close to the water, and there are several stations and vantage points which provide perfect insights into this unique water world.
Friday – bad weather is approaching
At breakfast, it is already clear that it will not stay dry today. But fortunately this is not a problem. After all, there are enough alternatives, such as the show mines in Larzenberg, Leogang, Sunnpau or Mühlbach. Well, the weather really doesn’t matter underground! After so much preoccupation with the arduous work that was carried out here in former times, in the afternoon you have earned some time for wellness: several first-class thermal spas in SalzburgerLand are also on the list of wellness activities included in the card. So we don’t mind about bad weather!
Saturday – Hohe Tauern National Park
You can enjoy a holiday in SalzburgerLand with the luxury of having Austria’s largest national park virtually right on your doorstep. After the flow of information, it’s finally time to go out into the park. Rangers offer tours and bring nature-hungry guests to wonderful hiking points with the national park taxis (also included in the SalzburgerLand Card offer).
Sunday is excursion day
Would you like to go high up in the mountains, deep into a gorge, or both? Numerous mountain lifts lead up to panoramic hiking areas without a great difference in altitude of uphill walking. After enjoying a hearty lunch at an alpine hut eg: Kasnocken (strips of cheese dumplings) with salad and apple strudel as dessert, it’s time to go back down and head off for the next highlight: the mountain torrents in SalzburgerLand have carved spectacular gorges in the rocks over the millennia. The Liechtenstein Gorge near St. Johann im Pongau is a good example. You always walk between the rock face and along the water over narrow pathways, bridges and steep tracks: an absolute highlight to finish a holiday.
Doesn’t it sound like a good week? Naturally, the SalzburgerLand Card is also available for 12 days, and also has quite a bit more to offer. Take a glance at all 190 attractions, or order your card directly online in advance.
