A sporty winter season in Salzburg

A sporty winter season in Salzburg

For many people, Christmas is a celebration when people can stay with their family in the comfort of their homes, spending quality time. But there are also those of you who might be more adventurous and who are looking for an escape to a white place, full of snow. A sporty winter season in Salzburg is, therefore, our suggestion for the day.

Salzburg Land in Austria is famous for a series of things: Mozart was born here, it is a center of music to the day, the Mirabell Gardens are a beautiful travel attraction and… one of the most popular skiing resorts are here, making Salzburg an ultimate winter sports destination.

In the following, let’s look into some of the best Salzburg places where you can practice winter sports. The Hohe Tauern National Park is just the place for you if you want out from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Amidst gentle slopes and snow caped mountains, you can take your friends or family and go hiking, skiing or sledding. The little town of Kolm Saigurn used to be an important center of gold mining, so if you come visit, you can enjoy both the fresh air and a lesson in local history from the welcoming people who live there.

Kitzbuhel in the Alps is a lovely town, with baroque architecture and a domain of 170 km of perfectly skiable slopes.

If you are traveling with your family and little ones, you might like to look into one of the following options. You can feed in animals down the Habach Valley. If you are lucky, you will encounter stags, chamois and deers. There is also a fairytale train from Pinzgau which will make your child happy to travel through a quiet land of mountains and frozen cascades. And if you are into both history and sports, you can always visit the Ski Museum in Werfenweng.

Alternatively, you can always rent a car in Austria and go on a road trip!
