Salzburg Photos: Winter Hiking
return to "winter
Hearing of Salzburg in winter, do you think of anything else than
more skiing? Most people don't, and that is quite a shame. Even if you ignore
the various cultural and sightseeing-related things you can do in the city and
concentrate on winter sports on the countryside only, there is much more than "only"
skiing that one can do. Winter hiking is becoming more popular, often linked
with skiing in so-called ski tours (Skitouren). These can be rather dangerous
and are not recommendable to beginners, though. Note also cross-country-skiing
and snowboarding. You can go mountainbiking in winter, enjoy a spa, go skating (ideally
on one of the lakes in the Salzburg Lake District or the
tobogganing, or you slide down a mountain on a plastic bag.
