Salzburg, also known as Salzburgerland, is the federal state of Austria with the capital of the same name, stretching along the Salzach River. It is located in northwestern Austria, close to the border with German Bavaria. If you dream of a holiday surrounded by breathtaking mountain landscapes, a camping in Salzburg is a must!
By far the greatest advantage of this part of Austria is the magnificent mountain scenery. In the southern part of the region, there are the main mountain ranges of the Alps (including the Hohe Tauern Mountains) with numerous three-thousanders. In turn, to the east and north, the Salzburger Land is bordered by the Dachstein Massif and the Berchtesgadene Alps.
Another reason why you should plan a family holiday in Salzburg is the architecture. The entire historic center of the region's capital has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Salzburg Cathedral was the first baroque building in the German-speaking world! Two other important buildings on the map of this city are Hohenwerfen Castle and Hohensalzburg Fortress. An interesting fact is that the world-famous Arnoweg hiking trail was named after the first archbishop of Salzburg – Arno of Salzburg (785-821).
If anyone still hesitates whether it is worth going camping in Salzburg, we have a whole list of additional attractions: the world's largest ice cave – Eisriesenwelt, panoramic road Großglockner Hochalpenstraße, one of the longest and deepest gorges of the Alps – Liechtensteinklamm, captured in the film "The Sound of Music" Nonnberg Abbey, the permanent race track of the Salzburgring, the Ski Amadé, the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski runs and much, much more.
