Heavenly holiday on the Salzburg Sun Terrace
Sunny and central. Our sun spots.
The Salzburg Sun Terrace bears its name not without reason. Due to the special location of our villages on a plateau in the valley of the Salzach, they get a lot of the warming sun rays. Even at the winter solstice on 21 December, we have an average of a whopping 7 hours of sun. But our location offers other advantages. Although we are immersed in the beautiful panorama of the Alps, you can quickly and easily reach excursion destinations such as Salzburg or the Hohe Tauern National Park. In winter we are the gateway to Ski amadé – the largest winter sports area in Europe. All this and much more promises your holiday on the Salzburg Sun Terrace!
