Are you one of those people who wants to experience as much as they can on your holiday or in your free time? Do you like being active, doing sports and sometimes pushing yourself to your limits? The Salzburger Land region's topography determines this - you have everything at your feet. From beautiful lakes to hilly landscape to high mountains - welcome to the Salzburger SPORTland.

Being sporty surrounded by mountains and lakes

A really apt motto to get to know the Salzburger Land's mountain regions. In terms of mountains & sport you benefit from the great variety in the federal state of Salzburg. In the lake district flat and hilly landscapes reign which runners, road cyclists and e-bikers in particular will remember for a long time to come. Easy hikes and rambling trails offer an all-round package too. In between these are several golf courses which will charm you with wonderful fairways.

You often aim high too

If you go deep into the nearby Salzkammergut region the landscape quickly turns a bit more rugged and alpine. This particularly makes any mountain bikers, mountaineers and climbers' day. The Dachstein is the centre for this; you can drive and walk around it and even climb it. Further to the south, in the Upper Tauern and the national park with the same name, you can find Salzburg's highest mountains. If you go as far as this and visit the world of the 3,000 metre peaks then you are probably interested in alpine mountain adventures and sporty motorbike tours.

Are you on a summer holiday? Then Salzburg's lakes are calling

The word paradise is really appropriate now. Around the city of Salzburg you can find a number of wonderful lakes that invite you to swim and try out various water sports. In just a few minutes you can be in the Salzburg Lake District and dive in. Another buzzword in the Salzburger Land region is Mozart Golf. This refers to 15 golf courses with different characteristics that appeal to various levels of golfing skills. As a result of the abundant variety newcomers to golf feel just as at home as professionals and experts.

It can gladly offer a bit more action too

As Salzburg is a sports region it also naturally caters for your personal adrenaline rush. Face and fight your inner couch potato at the climbing park, the high-rope course or by flying down a zip wire. If you want things to be a bit more wild, we recommend a rafting or kayaking tour on the Salzach or Saalach rivers. Unforgettable adventures and experiences certainly await you with canyoning in Lofer or in the Strubklamm near Mondsee lake.
