Salzburg Photos: Snow & Mountains of Salzburg
return to "winter
A panorama view on some mountains of the Osterhorngruppe, a mountain range not
far from Salzburg city. The geology of these mountains leads to a characteristic
shape, which is very distict if compared to mountains of calciferous rock.
Skiing areas such as Gaißau-Hintersee,
Faistenau can be found in this
area. It is an important recreational region for locals from Salzburg and the
densely populated areas in the northern Flachgau region. Tourists usually prefer
to dive deeper into the Salzkammergut for hiking in the summer or deeper into
the proper Alps for skiing in the winter. Both seasons are quite enjoyable in
the Osterhorngruppe, nonetheless. You are just more likely to find domestic
tourists or German visitors rather than crowds of overseas tourists.
