Romance in the ancient city of Salzburg. A real experience in the mountains.

Christmas markets in Salzburg and fun on the pistes

When the atmosphere gets really cosy in the homely little dining rooms here, you know that Christmas is not far round the corner. Village life is fascinating: contmplating our roots, colourful strings of lights, warmhearted people with smiley faces, and the Christmas markets in Salzburg are just as much a part of this wonderful time as the crackling of the open fire.

Winter Magic in the Salzburg region

The pistes in the surrounding ski areas resemble an untouched canvas in smooth white. You can be one of the first people to leave your mark by making tracks on this canvas. There are also plenty of cross-country trails, ice rinks, and winter hiking paths for unforgettable experiences in the clear mountain air. This is what winter holidays in Salzburg are all about.
