Salzwelten Salzburg & Celtic Mountain
Let's go underground. The mine train leads deep into the Dürrnberg and so begins an exciting journey back in time: from modern mining and salt production of the present, to the glorious Baroque period and the Dark Middle Ages, and finally to the Celtic miners of ancient history.
Experience the Middle Ages up close. Hohenwerfen Castle is one of the most popular excursion destinations for families, featuring a creepy torture chamber, a bell tower with wonderful views, and the breathtaking bird-of-prey demonstrations at the Landesfalkenhof.

Experience the power of water and eternal ice. Modern transfer buses and the Lärchwand inclined lift, the largest of its kind in Europe, take you to the upper Kaprun Valley, one of the most water-rich mountain regions in Austria.
Grossglockner High Alpine Road
Where the happiness hormones bubble. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road has been one of the most beautiful panoramic roads in the Alps for over 80 years. Every year, some 850,000 visitors from all over the world experience the 48-kilometer route, including a seven-kilometer panoramic section.
