  • Walking & hiking

    Salzburg Off The Beaten Path

    It is safe to say that most people confine themselves to the old city centre when traveling to Salzbrug. The is, after all, where the funicular to the Festung is as well as the Dom (main Cathedral) and Mozart's birthplace. But if you travel across the bridge into the pedestrian area and stay to the right until there is an opening you will find the...

  • Königssee

    Salzburg Off The Beaten Path

    The Königsee is one of the nicest lakes in the area, if the weather is nice take a boat to St. Bartholomä (it is not posible to walk there), a beautiful baroque chapel or to Salet (not in winter) from where you can walk to the Obersee. And take care the weather can change very fast, when i was there last the weather was great but i had to wait 30...

  • The Beer experience

    Salzburg Off The Beaten Path

    If you are at all interested in Beer and how its made get yourself along to the Steigl Brauwelt Brewery.

  • Mondsee

    Salzburg Off The Beaten Path

    We took the Sound of Music tour in the morning. The 'Sound of Music' tour took us to Helbrunn Castle and Gardens, Mondsee (cathedral in photos 2 and 3), Leopoldskron and all the way to St. Gilgen and the lake in Wolfgangsee (last two pictures). Our son won a prize for knowing the name of Maria's mountain (about 10km away from the convent/school)....

  • Music at the Cathedral and Other...

    Salzburg Off The Beaten Path

    This is well worth the climb - go to the service at 7pm and hear the nuns signing simply beautiful. We thought we'd be the only people at the service, but it was packed and people were standing. It well worth attending this 15 minute service.

  • The Alps

    Salzburg Off The Beaten Path

    This lovely little village near Salzburg was breathtaking. Situated along Lake Wolfgang, or Wolfgangsee as the locals refer, the village is nestled at the base of the Alps, with houses and shops flooding over with flowers. Sit and take in the sights, or browse the shops - either will provide restful calm as you make your way through the byways in...

  • Grossgmain

    Salzburg Off The Beaten Path

    Next to the pilgrimage church in Grossgmain there is a very special garden. It's called Mariengarten, garden dedicated to Mary. However, this garden combines the Catholic belief in Mary with the belief of the old religions in nature. It was done with respect to the zodiac, to the setting of the planets at the time of planting. Stones are arranged...

  • Augustine Monastery

    Salzburg Off The Beaten Path

    The highlight of the Augustine Monastery is the beer hall in the lower levels. It's a great experience to buy some food from the halls surrounding the main eating area and then to choose your own ceramic mug and indulge in a great brew in such beautiful surroundings.

  • Mauthausen

    Salzburg Off The Beaten Path

    This is a concentration camp east of Salzburg about an hour or so. It was truly a moving experience. I later visited Auschwitz in Krakow, and can say that Mauthesen is somehow are more somber visit (if that is possible). I think the reason for this is that one walks through gas chambers and cremation rooms which gives me chills just thinking about...

  • Hike in Berchtesgaden

    I took a local bus (only 4 Euros) about 45 minute from Salzburg to Berchtesgaden. Then I hiked up to the top of the mountain where Hitler's Eagles Nest is. I recommend this trip for all people. It's not a bad hike for all people.

It dominates Austria's mightiest mountains, the Hohe Tauern, looming above the longest and most symmetrical glacier in the East Alps, the Pasterze.
