We will gladly help you obtain a customized offer with one of our local partners!

Eisriesenwelten, Werfen

Visit the largest ice cavern in the world and let yourself be led through the wintery world of ice on hot summer days.  During your tour of the cave system, amaze at the incredible ice palace and magnificent structures.  Eisriesenwelt is located 50km away from the city of Salzburg and can be reached easily by car or public bus.  Daily opend from 1st May to 26th October.

Salzburg salt mines

In Bad Dürnberg, Hallein, just outside of Salzburg, is one of the oldest mining exhibitions in the world.  Discover the depths of the salt mines in traditional miners clothing.  Set off through the tunnel on a small train and begin an adventure over smoothly polished slides and salt lakes into the heart of the mountain.  You can reach the Salt mines (which are 18km away) by car or use the “Salz-Erlebnis-Ticket” (salt experience ticket) provided by ÖBB.


You can enjoy never-ending views and a wonderful panorama over the entire Salzkammergut all the way up to the Hohe Tauern on top of Salzburg’s local mountain, the Unterberg.  The valley station for the Untersberg cable car in Grödig/St. Leohard is just 10km away from Salzburg and can be easily reached by car or city bus.

Großglockner high Alpine road

You can explore Austria’s highest mountain (3798m) and the mighty mountain landscape of Hohe Tauern via the Großglockner high alpine road.  The gravity of this natural experience enthrals over a million visitors every year, making this panoramic road the most visited tourist attraction in Austria, after Schloss Schönbrunn.

The Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle’s Nest)

The famous historical building with its metre-thick walls, built in the national socialist era, offers visitors an overwhelming view over the Berchtesgadener Land.  A tunnel lined with natural stone leads 124m through the mass of rock to a magnificent lift.  In just 41 seconds, this lift travels 124m upwards to the inside of the Kehlstein house.  The road up over the Kehlsteinstreet, a masterpiece of engineering in itself, is a unique experience.  Distance from Salzburg: 30km


The Salzkammergut extends around the city of Salzburg with its picturesque bathing lakes – the world famous Wolfgangsee, Fuschl See, Mondsee and many more – which captivate you with their crystal clear waters. Visit places such as Bad Ischl, St. Wolfgang, Hallstatt and Bad Goisern – they’re well worth it.  Explore the Salzkammergut on your own or take part in a Salzkammergut tour.
