    Things to do in SalzburgerLand

    Remember Maria twirling and singing on an Alpine pasture in the famous movie "The Sound of Music"? It is SalzburgerLand that comes to mind almost immediately.

    Salz is the german word for Salt, and, as the name suggests, the rich salt mines are central to Salzburg's identity and riches, since they allowed it to remain an independent state for quite a long time. The city of Salzburg, its' Baroque capital, is the place for culture lovers. After all, Mozart was born here and lived here for many years. 

    Salzburg has a great number of skiing resorts during the winter, but the beautiful lakes, hiking paths, and the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg city, among many other attractions, make this province a worthy visit at any time of year.

    However, the countryside has an enjoyable bucolic charm all its own. On your tour of the region, we suggest to stop out in the lovely lake resort Zell am See or the breathtaking gorge and waterfall at Liechtensteinklamm. Not to mention Austria's highest waterfall in Krimml or the Giant Ice Caves.
