The sound of cowbells, a meadow full of swaying cotton grass and the view of a mountain lake with rippling water: This is what the perfect alpine summer in Salzburg’s Lungau looks like.

The Salzburg Lungau, about 100 kilometers from the Mozart city of Salzburg, is not only the sun-niest region in Austria, but was also awarded the “UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Salzburg Lungau & Kärntner Nockberge” for its magnificent natural landscape.

Nestled between the Niedere Tauern and the Nockberge mountains, a hiking paradise of super-latives awaits nature lovers. The crystal-clear mountain air seems to tickle your nose. Beautiful alpine pastures and unspoilt nature with an abundance of plants, berries and herbs make the alpine summer and the Harvest Festival a sensual pleasure: with delicious alpine delicacies, na-ture experiences and moments of happiness that you will never forget.
