Your divine holidays on the Salzburg Sun Terrace
Sunny and central. Our sunny spots.
The Salzburg sun terrace does not bear its name without reason. Due to the special location of our villages on a plateau in the valley of the Salzach, they get especially many of the warming sun rays. Even at the winter solstice on 21 December we have an average of seven hours of sunshine. But our situation offers further advantages. Although we are embedded in the middle of the beautiful panorama of the Alps, you can quickly and easily reach 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 is promised by your holiday on the Salzburg sun terrace!
Idyllically situated on our sun terrace, the village of St. Veit has existed since the 11th century. Originating from a church settlement, the parish church of St. Vitus with its market square still forms the heart of the village today. St. Veit im Pongau has preserved its original charm throughout all times and invites you to enjoy its traditional atmosphere. Experience lively customs, theatre performances and concerts in one of the most beautiful market towns in Salzburg.
Initially a district of St. Veit, Schwarzach in Pongau only became an independent municipality at the beginning of the 20th century. Since then she has developed magnificently. Today, it is not only the railway station with excellent connections to the railway network that is located here, but also the first railway museum in the province of Salzburg. The Cardinal Schwarzenberg Clinic is certainly one of the most famous buildings in the local area. Slightly off the beaten track from the city centre, Schernberg Castle is the former home of the archbishop’s brewery. Today it is owned by the Order of the Merciful Sisters.
The sun terrace is centrally located in the Salzburger Land. On the interactive map you will find hikes, sights and much more.
