The Salzburgerland guide 2018

The state of Salzburgerland stretches across Austria for just over 2,700sq miles — a small place, yes, but it packs in an inordinate amount of allure. For starters, it’s famous for being a cultural epicentre — where the The Sound of Music came alive, where Mozart was born, and where Silent Night was written (p.28). We give you the lowdown on Salzburg city’s best spots (p.12), explore the rich traditions of Alpine cuisine (p.18) and wander the postcard-perfect Christmas markets (p.24).
Beyond the city limits, the region’s outdoor propositions are staggering, stretching across all four seasons. During the summer, the lakes are a playground for paddleboarding and windsurfing (p.64). You can conquer trails on two wheels (p.44), and set off on a hike between rustic mountain huts (p.74). In winter, the landscape transforms into a wonderland of powdery pistes where you can ski, snow bike and toboggan until you fall over, before reviving yourself with a fortifying glühwein (p.32).
