Winter holidays off the slopes
Fun in the snow in the Salzburger Land
If you donâ€™t ski, you donâ€™t need a winter holiday? Well, maybe that was once the case. But here with us, thereâ€™s lots to do and discover away from the pistes and cross-country ski trails as well!
Experience nature during a winter or snow shoe hike
Through winter forests blanketed deep in snow, or up into the mountains and across hillsides glistening in the sunlight. The silence of wintery nature has its own very special appeal, which more and more people discover for themselves as they enjoy a winter hike. Even more fascinating is a hike with snow shoes which make it possible to even master trails in the deep snow.
Winter at the lake
Whenever a thick sheet of ice covers the Zeller See, that also means major wintertime fun. Glide on skates across the ice, or maybe try your hand for the first time at a game of Bavarian curling. When the temperatures are not low enough for skating on the lake you can always go to the ice arena in Zell am See. And footpaths around the lake also give you the opportunity to experience the yearâ€™s coldest season from its most beautiful perspective. A winter hike on Zell am Seeâ€™s promenade or along groomed paths will let you breathe in the wintery atmosphere in a very relaxed way.
Ski touring becomes an increasingly popular mountain sport and is possible even for beginners with little experience thanks to marked trails. Climb the summit of the Ronachkopf, a popular area for ski tourers, or even go up to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. Those who do not feel up to go alone can simply go on a guided ski tour with trained mountaineers. After the climb you will get the reward in form of the descent in the fresh powder snow.
Shopping & AprÃ¨s-Ski
Either after skiing or as an alternative option: There are plenty of opportunities for aprÃ¨s-ski, from traditional to hip. Bars, restaurants and clubs await visitors in the mood to party. And if you still need the perfect outfit, you will find all kinds of shopping opportunities in and around Kaprun.
Letâ€™s face it: Your winter getaway in Salzburger Land is guaranteed to be a winter holiday like you imagined it in your dreams!
