So much sun! The exceptional location above the Salzach Valley helped St. Veit and the neighbouring town of Schwarzach, to the appropriately honourable title of “Salzburg’s Sun Terrace”. The cold north winds weaken the mighty Hochkönig Mountain while the warm southerly winds flow over the Gastein Valley and onto St. Veit. On the day of the winter solstice, 21st December, this spa town enjoys just under seven hours of sunshine.
