The Kitzlochkamm gorge
Imposing cliffs, unique coves, labyrinthine passages and impressive bridges - the Kitzlochkamm gorge in Taxenbach offers a fascinating natural spectacle! Together with its “hermitage”, it is one of the most beautiful gorges in the region of Salzburg.
Großglockner High Alpine Road
If you spend your holiday in Austria, you must take a trip on the famous Großglockner High Alpine Road. You'll drive through 36 hairpin turns to the “Emperor Franz Josef Height”, where you'll have a view of the 3798-metre-high Grossglockner and its Pasterze glacier.
The Werfen Ice Giant World
The Ice Giant World in Werfen is one of the most popular excursion destinations around Salzburg. At 42 km, it is the largest ice cave in the world! We recommend visiting particularly on hot days. In Werfen, you'll also find the Hohenwerfen adventure fortress - an additional highlight of the region.
The water of the Krimml Waterfalls plunges over three levels! With a drop of 380 metres, they are the highest waterfalls in Europe. You should absolutely undertake the one hour walk on the Waterfall Route, because you are ensured a fascinating view of this natural wonder.
