Excursion destinations in Salzburger Land for children and adults

Exciting must-sees around the Thurnerhof

The Saalbach Hinterglemm holiday region is full of wonderful experiences and adventures, activities and sights. However, even in the neighbourhood and surrounding area, there is so much one wants to have seen and experienced. Numerous excursion destinations in the region of Salzburg for all of the family mean that you experience the province up-close with its world-famous capital, the Mozart city of Salzburg, too. 
You don’t know where to start? Well, we have gathered a few tips for you. 

Animal adventures 

Many animal species, on land and in the water, on the mountains and in the valleys, call the region of Salzburg their home. Numerous excursion destinations are dedicated to them, including:                            

  • Wildlife park Ferleiten: More than 200 animals native to the Alps on more than 15 hectares. The adjoining leisure park is also great fun, especially for children.      
  • Wildlife park Untertauern: Another, somewhat smaller, wildlife and leisure park with open-air enclosures invites you to enjoy exciting animal observations, as well as great play opportunities for the young and young-at-heart. 
  • Reptilienzoo Nockalm: The fascinating world of venomous snakes and reptiles is given a spectacular showplace here – at a respectful distance, of course.         
  • Wildgehege (Game Enclosure) Kleefeld: In Strobl, you can take a look behind the scenes of this home for red and fallow deer on a guided tour.     

Pure nature experiences 

The power of nature is not just visible in the diverse animal world, but also in the countless natural monuments which skilfully capture the beauty and spirit of the region of Salzburg: 

  • Krimml Waterfalls: Europe’s highest waterfalls, with a drop-height of 380 metres, create not just a healthy, healing climate, but are also there for you to explore by climbing up the hiking path. A visit to the exhibition “Krimmler WasserWelten” (“Krimml Worlds of Water”) is an absolute must. 
  • “Sigmund Thun Klamm” gorge: In Kaprun, you can feel the power of the water up-close. Over millennia, the Kapruner Ache has carved its way through the rock.
  • Salzachöfen gorge: The wildly romantic Dachstein limestone gorge between the Hagen and Tennengebirge mountains in Golling is the home of a true adventure gorge with action and adventure for the young and the young-at-heart.   
  • Kaprun high mountain reservoirs: There are many lovely mountain lakes, but this body of water, created by a dam, combines natural beauty with impressive technology. A walk over the dam gives an impression of the sheer power of nature. 

Fortresses and castles in the region of Salzburg 

In addition to the world-famous Hohensalzburg Fortress in the city of Mozart, there are many other castles and fortresses in the region of Salzburg which combine history with modernity:         

  • Hohenwerfen: Falconry makes a visit to this fortress extra special. Flying displays with trained birds-of-prey number among the highlights of this medieval complex, which is the venue for lively festivals and exciting concerts, especially in the summer.                           
  • Schloss Goldegg: This 12th century complex is primarily known as a seminar and conference location however, the interesting Pongau local history museum is also located here.          
  • Klammstein: This 800-year-old castle, which was once of great political and economic importance, stands at the entrance to the Gastein valley. Careful renovation work has brought the castle and museum to life today.     
  • Mauterndorf: Where there had already been a Roman fort in the 4th century, you can now experience the Middle Ages up-close and in an extra family-friendly way– it is definitely one of the loveliest excursion destinations for children in the region of Salzburg.      

...and furthermore:

Of course, this is not nearly everything that the region of Salzburg has to offer, for example, how about:

  • Schafbergbahn: Some excursion trains are small highlights in their own right. The trip from St. Wolfgang to Schafberg (1,783 metres above sea-level) with the cogwheel steam locomotive offers amazing views of the vast Salzkammergut. 
  • Lake Zell: One of the loveliest and clearest lakes in the whole province invites you to cool-down and sunbathe on one of the many dedicated areas. A short boat trip is also not to be missed.
  • Hohe Tauern National Park: One of Europe’s most important national parks invites you to discover the beauty of nature, hiking action, trekking journeys and cultural highlights. 
  • Fantasiana: The adventure park in Straßwalchen in the northern Flachgau region is ideal for children and teenagers alike. Eight themed areas, a rollercoaster and a giant water-slide invite you to go on unique adventures!                               

Family-friendly adventures, exciting activities for groups, and countless moments of enjoyment for couples await you around the Thurnerhof.
