Abwechslungsreicher Wellnessurlaub im Salzburger Land
Abwechslungsreicher Wellnessurlaub im Salzburger Land

[ source: Wikipedia]

A wellness vacation in this promised land for vacations is just as full of different kinds of fun as the region is full of differences. The Salzburger Land is sure to offer the fitting activity and accommodation for every taste. In this guide, the most relaxing wellness escapes of the Salzburger Land are presented by the testers of Wellness Heaven®.

Sportspeople and friends of the outdoors can hike, mountain bike, go alpine or cross-country skiing to their heart’s content in the mountainous Southern region of the Lungau, with the Radstädter Tauern and part of the Hohe Tauern in sight. After outdoors fun, visit one of the various wellness hotels in the region and let yourself get pampered.

A vacation in the Salzburger Land would not be complete without a visit to the national park Hohe Tauern, one of the oldest nature reserves in Europe. Among other great natural beauty, the national park is home to the highest Austrian mountain, the Grossglockner. Walks in this unspoiled paradise will lead to idyllic mountain lakes, imposing waterfalls, but also colorful Alpine meadows and diverse flora and fauna. Friends of winter sports can enjoy the breathtaking panorama of the Hohen Tauern on 823 kilometers of skiing slopes.

Those who love diving into refreshing waters should consider going on vacation in the region around the Fuschlsee lake. Spa-Hotelssuch as Ebner’s Waldhof are nicely located right at the water. The lake region guarantees an extra special swimming experience in mountain panorama, surfing and sailing fun. In winter, too, cross-country skiing, snowshoe hikes, rides in the horse-drawn sleigh or the bowling-like sport of Eisstockschiessen on lake ice will nicely help forget about everyday life’s stresses.

Winter or summer, Saalbach Hinterglemm is another great vacation spot in the Salzburger Land. Quaint and trendy accommodations such as Wellnesshotel Forsthofgut are set one after the other in this town just waiting to serve its recovery-seeking guests. The area’s particularly popular attraction is the Ski Circus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang, one of Austria’s largest skiing areas encompassing the mountains of the Glemmtal valley and offering 200 km of slopes.

Those looking not just for soothing massages, beautifying cosmetics and sports activities but also for some cultural events are also at the right place. After all, the Salzburger Land gets its name from its main city, Salzburg – and there are more than 4000 cultural events held in this town every year. For ages, the small, beautiful town at the Salzach river has attracted great artists such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Michael Haydn, Stefan Zweig, Hugo von Hoffmansthal and Georg Trakl. The Salzburger Festspiele and the Mozartwochen have given the city international fame, and a lively art scene has established itself. A multitude of galleries, but also seasonal events such as the well-known Jazzherbst (Autumn of Jazz) or the Easter and Pentecost Plays are testament to its cultural diversity.
