Summer and Traditions
Unternberg is located in the UNESCO Biosphere Park Salzburg Lungau and is an ideal starting point for many bicycle and mountain bike tours, hikes and excursions due to its central location in the Mur Valley. The model airfield at Moosham is one of the most beautiful in Austria and a meeting place for aviation fans from near and far. Especially inviting are the local hiking trails, Nordic walking trails, tennis courts, and the beach volleyball court.
Living traditions such as the Maypole climbing or the giant Samson and his dwarves with the town band are an unforgettable experience. Atmospheric events in summer and at Harvest Festival invite you to joint celebrations with the local population.
Excursion tip: Castle Moosham
The third largest castle complex in SalzburgerLand is witness to a creepy past and known far and wide for its richly equipped castle museum. The Castle Moosham gets its legendary celebrity status through the numerous processes that were carried out here in the Middle Ages against witches, magicians and beggars. Today, the original torture chamber and valuable goods from the time are coveted show-pieces which can be seen on an all year round tour.
When the winter arrives in idyllic Unternberg, the snow-assured Aineck-Katschberg ski region ensures seemingly limitless skiing enjoyment. And also the other ski areas in the Lungau region are reachable in only a few minutes by car. For cross-country skiers, winter hikers and snowshoe enthusiasts, the snow-covered winter landscape has great experiences on offer. Ice skating and curling on the frozen lake take one back to their childhood. How about a horse drawn sleigh ride and subsequent warming by the stove? Wonderful..
