St. Martin am Tennengebirge
St. Martin is a village in the Pongau area of Salzburg, just south of the Tennengebirge mountain range, in the Lammertal Valley. The attribute "am Tennengebirge" is almost always added to the name in order to avoid confusions with two other St. Martins in the province of Salzburg.

Some 1,500 beds are available in the hotels of St. Martin, some 150,000 overnight arrangements are sold every year. Note that the winter season is significantly more important than the summer season.
